Welcome to the Irish Association of Physicists in Medicine Website

The IAPM is an Association of Medical Physicists working in Health Care and Academia in Ireland. The IAPM was founded in 2010 by the merger of the Association of Physical Scientists in Medicine and the Irish Radiotherapy Physics Group and currently has over 150 members.

The aims of the Association are as follows:


  • The promotion of the application of the physical sciences in medicine
  • Promotion of Research and Education in the physical sciences in Medicine
  • Establishing and maintaining professional standards
  • Promoting professional development and the interests of the membership.
  • To offer appropriate advice concerning the application of physical sciences to relevant bodies as required

The IAPM produces a biannual newsletter called "Making Waves". This publication aims to provide a platform for the discussion and debate of subject matters relevant to Medical Physicists working in Ireland. The Autumn/Winter 2012 edition of Making waves is now available for download in the members area.

On November 7th, the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) will celebrate the International Day for Medical Physics (IDMP). The day was chosen by IOMP in recognition of the pioneering research work on radioactivity of Marie Sklodowska-Curie who, on that day in 1867, was born in Poland. IDMP is going to be an annual event in which 80 national organizations of IOMP and countries all over the world shall celebrate the impact of Medical Physics on daily lives of millions of humans, whether patients, workers or members of the public worldwide. IOMP aims to raise awareness of the important role Medical Physicists play in the clinical environment as well as in education, research and development of sophisticated medical technology.
