The Ontario Association of Medical Physicists (OAMP) is the provincial organization for all medical physicists in Ontario.
The OAMP began life at the 62nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists in St. John’s, Newfoundland on July 20, 2016. During this meeting, the first Board of Directors was elected, objects of the corporation agreed upon, and the bylaws of the corporation ratified.
There are two hundred medical physicists employed in Ontario in cancer centres, hospital medical imaging departments, universities, and industry, in addition to graduate students in several academic programs.
The OAMP provides a voice for the medical physics community in its relationships with the public, government, agencies, and other healthcare associations.
