  1. IDMP Award of the International Organisation for Medical Physics (IOMP)

The IDMP award recognises excellence in Medical Physics with a particular view of promoting medical physics to a larger audience and highlighting the contributions medical physicists make for patient care. The IDMP award is linked to the International Day of Medical Physics (IDMP) from which it takes its name.

Frequency/Venue: Annually. The award will be given on the occasion of the celebration of the International Day of Medical Physics (IDMP) to one Medical Physicist from each IOMP Regional Organization (EFOMP, AFOMP, SEAFOMP, MEFOMP, ALFIM, FAMPO and North America). It will be announced on the day before IDMP (Nov 6th).

 Award: The Award will include an IOMP certificate, and a short Biography of the Awardee will be published in the IOMP Newsletter Medical Physics World.

 Criteria for selection:
• The recipient of the Award should have at least a Master Degree or equivalent in Medical Physics.
• The recipient should have performed original and/or applied work of very high scientific quality, or made a significant professional contribution to Medical Physics in the past three years.

 Nomination procedure:
• The award will be widely advertised on the IOMP mailing list and website.
• The President of each IOMP Regional Medical Physics Organisation may nominate up to three medical physicists from the region. Nominees should be full members of the IOMP NMO in the region for which they have been nominated.
• Self-nomination will only be considered in exceptional circumstances
• Nominations are to be made to the chair of the IOMP Awards and Honours Committee (AHC).
• The nomination should include the following:

2. A Curriculum Vita including all publications and professional contributions to MP organizations.

 Evaluation criteria
IOMP AHC committee will evaluate the supporting evidence provided for each nominee. This evaluation will consider the significant contribution of the nominee for the benefit of the patients through the following:
• support to clinical services (e.g. diagnostic radiology, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine);
• academic work (including lecturing/teaching);
• the authorship of published books or book chapters, and the authorship of papers and citations in recognised peer-reviewed journals in medical physics;
• relevant research projects in MP;
• engagement in regional developments;
• promotion and popularization of Medical Physics.
One medical physicist from the three nominations per region will be selected to receive the award.

 Closing date: The closing date for nominations is noon (EST) on 7th July 2016. Nominations should be sent to Dr Simone K. Renha, chair of the AHC at simone@ird.gov.br
