Program Sponsors


LOGO_IAEA International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, Vienna, Austria)

The International Atomic Energy Agency (Vienna, Austria) is providing a great support to the Master programme through scientific and financial support. Financial support is provided with the Inter-regional project INT/6/057: “Establishing a Joint IAEA/ICTP International Post-Graduate Medical Physics Education Programme”. Fellowships to students from MLI countries are the major financial contributors to the Master programme. IAEA educational material and e-books are also deeply used in theoretical and exercise courses. The Head of the Physics Section of the Human Health Division is also acting as an external advisor of the programme.

 LOGO_IOMP International Organisation For Medical Physics (IOMP)

The International Organisation for Medical Physics (IOMP) is contributing to the Master programme through scientific support. Master’s syllabus is following IOMP recommendations for the academic education and for the clinical training of the medical physicists.

IOMP has provided the International Accreditation to the programme giving a greater value to the Master’s degree thanks to this international recognition.

Presently, the IOMP’s Past-President prof. Slavik Tabakov is acting as external advisor of the programme.


European Federation Of Organisations For Medical Physics (EFOMP)

The European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP) has supported the development of the Master’s programme. EFOMP’s Officers are participating to external audit of the clinical training programme.


 LOGO_AIFM Associazione Italiana di Fisica Medica (AIFM)

The Associazione Italiana di Fisica Medica (AIFM), the Italian medical physics society, with its 1000 members is strongly supporting the academic and clinical training programme.

Presently, Medical physics departments from 25 large university and oncology Italian hospitals are part of the Network of hospitals for the clinical training.

Senior medical physicists are teachers in the academic courses of the first year and/or clinical supervisors of the Master’s students in the second year of the programme.

 MMP_MEFOMP Middle East Federation of Medical Physics (MEFOMP)

MEFOMP is part of the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) effort to further enhance and improve the status of medical physics in all regions across the Globe.

MEFOMP’s mission is to advance medical physics practice throughout Middle East by disseminating scientific and technical information, fostering the educational and professional development of medical physics, and promoting the highest quality medical physics services for patients.

MEFOMP is providing a partial financial support to a Master’s student from LMI Middle East countries to support the development of medical physics in the region.

 MMP_IPEM Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM)

IPEM is the professional organisation that represents physicists, engineers and technologists in United Kingdom. IPEM is a charity with more than 4,600 members from healthcare, academia and industry.

Some members help to ensure that patients are correctly diagnosed and safely treated for illnesses such as cancer and stroke through their work on imaging and radiotherapy. Some develop, maintain and manage medical equipment. Other members' research and innovation leads to new technologies and methods that improve on existing medical treatments.
IPEM is providing a partial financial support to a Master’s student from LMI countries.

LogoTecAvanzate Tecnologie Avanzate (TA, Turin, Italy)

The radiotherapy planning exercises are performed on a RayStation virtual platform (RaySearch, Sweden): uUp to 15 contemporary sessions of 3DCRT, IMRT and VMAT can run on the computer's students.
This platform is offered to ICTP for its medical physical activities (Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics, ICTP School of Medical Physics for Radiationtherapy and Joint IAEA-ICTP Courses) from Tecnologie Avanzate, a company based in Turin (Italy).

ICTP likes to thank Tecnologie Avanzate for this important contribution to the ICTP Medical Physics activities.

LOGO_ACS American Cancer Society, Inc. (ACS, Oklahoma City, USA)

An international consortium is supporting an Ethiopian national project to setup 5 new radiotherapy centres. The ACS, supporting the professional competences development, has required ICTP to train the medical physicists. Since 2017 ACS has selected and sponsored two Ethiopian graduated physicist enrolled in the Master cycle 2017-2018.


Prof. Günter Hartmann (Heidelberg, Germany)

Prof. Günter Hartmann (German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany) has offered a software platform (Java based) to simulate the absolute dosimetry of MV  X-ray beams and MeV electron beams  delivered by the clinical linear accelerators. The software allows simulating the absolute dosimetry according to the IAEA Code of practice TRS-398.

Prof. Hartmann’s software is free available for educational (not clinical) purposes.
