About EFOMP’s Examination Board
EFOMP’s Examination Board (EEB) has been established in 2016 to facilitate the harmonization of Medical Physics education and training standards throughout Europe.Composition of the first board.
EEB introduced the European Diploma of Medical Physics (EDMP) and the European Attestation Certificate to those Medical Physicists that have reached the Medical Physics Expert level (EACMPE). EEB examinations are tests of excellence in Medical Physics. They are designed to assess the knowledge, skills and competences requisite for the delivery of high standard Medical Physics services.
Currently medical physicists in European countries face difficulties in providing the necessary qualification evidence when they seek employment in other EU Member States or other countries. The EDMP will facilitate mobility of medical physicists in Europe and beyond. Furthermore, EEB provides an attestation certificate to those medical physicists that have reached the Medical Physics Expert level to be recognized by the relevant competent authorities of the EU according to the EU Directive 2013/59/EURATOM laying down the basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation (EU BSS).
The EEB examinations are voluntary. EEB diplomas do not replace any national certificates. However, they can be a common European qualification for medical physicists and will help to standardise training and expertise in Medical Physics across Europe.
Notification on upcoming examinations in 2023-2024
EFOMP are applying for mutual recognition of the MPE title with the EU Commission and are developing an Educational and Training Platform. The current structure of EEB examinations will be reorganised accordingly.
For this reason, there will be no exams in 2023-2024.
