Recognized continuous education in radiation protection

The radiation protection training ordinance of April 26, 2017 (814.501.261) is requiring medical physicists MP1 and MP2 to acquire 8 units of instruction in recognized continuous education in radiation protection during the course of five years.

The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) issued a license to SSRMP for the society to define what’s recognized as continuous education in radiation protection and to keep track of people’s compliance with the requirements.

SSRMP publishes a list of future courses/conferences which are recognized, as well as a list of past events (>01.01.2018) that have been recognized with the number of units of instruction to be awarded.

Regular Events

Regular events that take place in Switzerland as well as abroad but with strong ties to SSRMP (list not exhaustive)
