“Physics & Medicine. Toward a future of integration” will take place in Trento, from November 6th to Novembre 8th, 2014, at the Faculty of Law of the University of Trento.

The Conference is organized from the University of Trento, the Azienda Provinciale per i Servizi Sanitari of Trento and the Associazione Italiana di Fisica Medica, on the 50th anniversary of the event “Colloqui sui rapporti tra fisica e medicina” which left an important mark due to its significant contribution to both the establishment of the Medical Physics Departments and the introduction of Chairs of Physics at the Schools of Medicine.

Since then the life sciences experienced a true scientific and technological revolution with significant clinical implications. The goals of the meeting are:

  • to provide an overview of the future prospects of physics in medicine and analyze its contribution to address some of the most important challenges offered by the biomedical sciences
  • to develop a reflection on the profession and the role of the medical physicist projected in the new organizational models of health services
  • to analyze patterns of training and retraining of medical physicists
  • to discuss the contribution of research in physics as applied to medicine as an engine for innovation in health care

The event is organized in conjunction with the International Day of Medical Physics, proposed by the International Organization of Medical Physics (IOMP) for the day November 7th, in which it celebrates the anniversary of the birth of Marie Sklodowska-Curie.

The program also includes some joint sessions with the event Giornate di Studio sul Piano Triennale INFN 2015-2017.

For the professions of physicist (health physicist) and doctor in medicine, the Conference has been recognized as ECM event.
