Goals of the grants
- To assist medical physicists from developing countries in the SEAFOMP region to attend and present their work at the IUPESM WORLD CONGRESS ON MEDICAL PHYSICS AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING (IUPESM WC2022)
- To foster international co-operation in the field of medical physics not only between SEAFOMP member countries, but also between medical physicists around the world.
There are ten (10) Travel Awards with US$ 150 for each successful applicant from within SEAFOMP countries.
- The applicant shall be a young medical physicist (including medical physics students) currently practicing in a SEAFOMP member country; and
