dc.description.abstractA common international education, training and certification framework for medical physicists is not available. Because of this an agreed uniform level of skills and knowledge, which is considered as a prerequisite for the free movement of professionals, does not exist. The aim of this study is to provide a description of the present status of the medical physicist education, training and certification framework in 25 European, 2 North American and 2 Australasian countries and compare this with an international certification model. We find that a common policy is generally followed on education, training and certification as well as on professional practice, notwithstanding a few national differences. Attempts to formulate general guidelines are already in progress based on common features and differences between countries which could be used to inform the development of a truly international certification process for medical physicists.en_NZ
