The Korean Medical Physics Certification Board (KMPCB) is an independent, nonprofit organization. We were founded to provide board certification to all diplomates who have met a defined standard of education, training and knowledge in medical physics, and to accredit medical physics educational programs which have met the rigorous standards of education and training. In November 2015, the KMPCB was accredited by the International Medical Physics Certification Board (IMPCB) endorsed by the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP). The accreditation of our certification boards means to enhance the status of medical physicists and, especially, certified medical physicists worldwide. The Board began to examine and certify candidates for recognition as medical physicists. The KMPCB offers certification for medical physicists and accreditation of education programs in the specialties of Nuclear Medical Physics, and Therapeutic Medical Physics.
The mission of the Korean Medical Physics Certification Board (KMPCB) is to protect and improve the health and welfare of the public through more qualified and professional medical physicists.
