    About us

    The European Board for Accreditation in Medical Physics (EBAMP) has been set up by medical physics societies across Europe represented by the European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP). It is an independent organisation that accredits medical physics education and training events. It does this by allocating Continuous Professional Development (CPD) credits depending on the number of hours of education and hands-on training required of participants.

    Why Accreditate my event ?

    There is a strong demand for new education and training courses in medical physics following the publication of the European Commission Guidelines on Medical Physics Expert (MPE) report No. 174 and the European Union Basic Safety Standards Directive 2013/59/EURATOM (EU BSS). In addition, the rapid development of medical techniques based on ionising radiation, the growth of hospitals and the continuous need to produce competent health professionals in medical physics all require competently trained medical physicists. It is important, both from the perspective of the participants and the reputation of the profession, that there is a process for assessing the quality of such educational events. For European medical physicists this should be carried out by an external, independent accreditation body in accordance with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) for Lifelong Learning. EBAMP has been created in response to this need.

    How do I apply for accreditation for my educational event?

    The application process is carried out on-line. Persons applying for accreditation should click on this link to obtain the initial application form (link to form EB0000). This should be returned to (email address of secretary general) who will give you instructions on how to access a secure area in which you will find the instructions for applying for accreditation and in which you should deposit your completed application. A charge of 50 euros is made for each application, which is non-refundable. Applications must normally be received at least three months prior to the activity.
