Resources Available to Medical Physicists in Developing Countries

Educational Resources

AAPM/IOMP Library Program

The AAPM/IOMP Library Program serves as a resource for medical physics and related communities in developing countries.

AAPM Virtual Library

The web-based Virtual Library contains many of the Continuing Education Courses presented at the AAPM Annual Meetings. Log into the Virtual Library and view the courses.

AAPM Reports

The reports of the many AAPM Groups are available to all.

Other Resources

AAPM/IOMP Equipment Donation Program

The Equipment Donation Sub-Committee serves the joint partnership between AAPM and IOMP and works to ensure that available, working-order equipment is put to good use at clinics or educational institutions in low- and middle-income countries. Request or donate equipment.

The AAPM Journal Medical Physics Online

The flagship AAPM journal, Medical Physics, is published both in printed and online editions. The online edition is generally the most appropriate for international distribution. The Table of Contents and Abstracts are available for viewing by anyone at www.medphys.org. However, a subscription password is required to read the complete articles. Subscriptions to Medical Physics is included with all categories of membership.

The Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics (JACMP)

The Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics (JACMP) is an open-access journal, which publishes papers that will help clinical medical physicists perform their responsibilities more effectively and efficiently for the increased benefit of the patient. It is available for viewing by anyone at www.jacmp.org.

Membership in AAPM

Membership in AAPM is available to medical physicists in all countries.

There are several classes of AAPM membership, depending on ones qualifications (education and experience). The different membership categories and the application process is described in the New Member Information.

Membership in the British Institute of Radiology (BIR)

AAPM is a partner in the British Institute of Radiology (BIR) World Partner Network

The British Institute of Radiology is a multidisciplinary membership organization which connects professionals within imaging and radiation oncology, and provides you with educational events, publications and online resources. We help you meet your learning and CPD objectives, build your career, provide you with cutting-edge research, become a more active participant in your professional community and thus improve outcomes for patients. Our members exchange ideas, share expertise, gain new perspectives, insight and knowledge.

To join the BIR as a discounted UK/Ireland or International Member, AAPM members login to for details.

AAPM International Educational Programs

  • AAPM provides, sponsors, or co-sponsors a variety of educational and training programs in cooperation with medical physics organizations throughout the world.
  • Each year the International Scientific Exchange Program (ISEP) provides Continuing Education courses on both therapeutic and diagnostic imaging physics in selected Developing Countries.

  • The International Training and Research Coordination Subcommittee (ITRCS) is under the International Educational Activities Committee (IEAC) within the Education Council. Its charge is to facilitate medical physics training and research opportunities for international medical physicists within AAPM institutions when requested by national or international medical physics societies. The ITRCS updates the application form, reviews individual application cases, and coordinates with host institutions. The ITRCS does not arrange traveling visa, or the financial sponsorship for the training, which are solely responsibilities between the applicants and the host institutions.

The international education programs are administered by the International Educational Activities Committee (IEAC). To communicate with the IEAC about the education programs please insert you message below.
