Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the OAMP!
Medical physicists, whether in research or clinical settings, have an important role in our health care system. A number of concerns of medical physicists–our role in ensuring quality and safety in the use of energy applying medical devices, our possible status as a regulated profession, our research and our funding from certain granting agencies–are all regulated by the Province.
I invite you to become a member of the OAMP, to work with you and your colleagues so that medical physicists will have a strong voice in Ontario.
Stephen Breen, PhD, MCCPM
