Individual Associate Membership - EFOMP's President message
Publication Date: Jan 5th, 2020 09:58, Category: EFOMP Announcements
EFOMP wishes to involve in its activities as many Medical Physicists as possible. At the same time, it reiterates, that EFOMP is a Federation of National Member Organisations and it does not wish to weaken that aspect of its structure. To this end it has created a new class of membership called Individual Associate Membership (IAM).
Since the beginning of January 2020, the EFOMP e-learning platform (in which the editions 2018-2019 of our European School for Medical Physics Experts have been video recorded and uploaded) will be accessible to all the ones wishing to become IAM of EFOMP. The access will be given not only to the European Medical Physicists but to all the colleagues around the world who are interested in continuing their education and training.
However, since this change needs time to be properly disseminated and in order to have a smooth transition from the previous system to the new one, we decided to prolong the access until 31st of January 2020 to the ones who currently have been admitted and used the e-learning platform, due to their participation in one or more editions of the EFOMP School (ESMPE) and/or European Congress of Medical Physics 2018 (ECMP2018).
- Starting from 1st of February 2020 the access to the e-learning platform will be granted only to IAM.
- The participants of each ESMPE edition will access the material related to the course, in which they participate, via dropbox throughout a period of 2 months (one month before to one month after the completion of the course).
In this way we, will have enough time to advertise the changes in the access rules of the e-learning platform and ensure a smooth transition from the "old" to the "new" system.
To become an IAM is a very simple process: you only have to complete an online registration form and pay online a fee of 15 euro/year through EFOMP website. Detailed information will be uploaded in the coming days.
I hope that you will continue to support EFOMP by becoming an Individual Associate Member.
I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year full of success in your personal and professional lives.
President of EFOMP
