Korean Medical Physicists Certification Board (KMPCB) was established on January 2015, for the standardization and the internationalization of qualification and certification process for medical physicists.
First of all, I would like to thank the founding members of KMPCB who have overcome many challenges to establish KMPCB, and the Korean Society of Medical Physics (KSMP), the Korean Society for Radiation Oncology (KOSRO), the Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine (KSNM) and the International Medical Physicists Certification Board (IMPCB) who have been supporting us from the beginning.
Until 2021, the certificates of KMPCB have been awarded to 34 physicists and in Aug. 2022, 32 KMPCB equivalent certificates (KMPCB-E) were converted to regular ones. As of 2022, there are 66 KMPCB qualified persons in total, and this number is expected to steadily increase over time.
Radiation medicine is advancing day by day thanks to the development of science and technology.
KMPCB President Park, Woo-Yoon, M.D
As an essential field of modern medicine, radiation medicine plays an indispensable role in diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Of all, medical physics is a core field of radiation medicine, and its role will continue to increase with the development of radiation medicine. Those who have awarded KMPCB certificates are already playing important roles in the field, and their roles will become even greater in the future. KMPCB will continue to do our best to support development and growth in the field of medical physics.
Finally, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the executives of KMPCB again for their devotion and commitment to the organization.
KMPCB President Woo-Yoon Park, MD, PhD
