Network. Collaborate. Celebrate!

Our symposium to mark OMPI’s 30th anniversary will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7 (International Day of Medical Physics) at Carleton University.

This is the OMPI event of the year for everyone from OMPI members and medical physics graduate students to others with a casual interest in applications of physics to medicine. We especially look forward to seeing former OMPI members and alumni for this half-day event that will be an occasion for networking, collaboration, and a bit of a party.
