4th European Congress of Medical Physics (ECMP)

The deadline for the early bird registration for ECMP 2022 in Dublin has been extended until the 7th of June.

ECMP 2022 | 4th European Congress of Medical Physics


The theme of ECMP 2022 is Multiple Energies, Single Patient Focus. This represents the many strands of medical physics, which all operate at different energies and strengths and how, when they come together, they maximise the benefit to every patient. Ireland is an island nation with a strong history of sharing knowledge and connecting people. Here, we are all well aware of the importance of science without borders. The idea of the 2022 Congress is to reflect this connectivity between physicists and the sense of community.


EFOMP represents more than 9000 medical physicists and clinical engineers working in the field of medical physics. Through ECMP we hope to connect these physicists and those from other nations.

MyHealth@EU - Electronic Cross-Border Health Services in the EU

EU citizens value their healthcare. Many of us also travel, work or study in other EU countries. It is reassuring to know that in the event that you fall ill or experience a health emergency during your stay in another EU country, electronic cross-border health services – ePrescriptions and Patient Summaries – will be available in European countries to protect and assist travellers, under the brand “MyHealth@EU”. These services enable citizens in Europe to benefit from healthcare in their country of travel in the same way that they benefit in their country of residence – via a new digital communication channel. This secure channel enables eHealth national services to connect and exchange patients’ health data rapidly, safely and efficiently. Your personal data will always be treated and protected in accordance with existing EU legislation and with current practices in both your country of residence and your country of travel. In addition, before a health professional accesses any of your data, he or she should inform you about your rights. The new electronic cross-border health services are being established progressively in 25 EU countries until the end of 2025. For the latest updates on the countries which are currently offering these services, please take a look at our Europa webpage. This booklet provides information on what ePrescriptions and Patient Summaries services are – and on how to use, and benefit from them.
