40 Years of Academic Medical Physics at McGill
Celebrated in Conjunction with the International Day of Medical Physics
In 2019, the McGill Medical Physics Unit (MPU) is celebrating 40 years of activity in its teaching and research programs. Under the successive directorships of Montague Cohen, Ervin Podgorsak, and Jan Seuntjens, the MPU has developed into an internationally recognized academic program in medical physics featuring accredited education and training, innovation and research, and clinical service. Read more about the MPU on the About page.
To mark this anniversary, the MPU is organizing a celebration on November 07, the International Day of Medical Physics, featuring a short ceremony preceded by a symposium featuring alumni and members of the MPU. Join us to mark the occasion.
