Some 16 scientists from 12 developing countries will receive their master's degree in medical physics today after completing ICTP's two-year advanced training programme. A graduation ceremony honouring the students will take place at ICTP this morning at 11:30; watch the ceremony via ICTP's livestreaming.

The Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics (MMP), run jointly by ICTP and the University of Trieste, is designed to provide young, promising graduates of physics or related fields (mainly from developing countries) with postgraduate theoretical and clinical training so that they may be recognised as clinical medical physicists in their home countries.

Today's graduates are the fourth class to complete the programme, which comprises a year of basic and advanced courses (taught in English) prepared with the assistance of experts from ICTP's UN partner the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This is followed by a year of professional clinical training in a medical physics department of a hospital in the programme's training network.

The MMP is supported by the International Organisation for Medical Physics (IOMP) and the European Federation of Organizations in Medical Physics (EFOMP), in collaboration with Trieste hospitals. It is  accredited by the International Organisation for Medical Physics (IOMP).
