DIMP Education Series

The Diagnostic Imaging Medical Physics (DIMP) Education Series has been established by the Health Education and Training Institute to educate health professionals in the scientific and radiation safety aspects of diagnostic imaging medical physics service provision.

The workshops have been developed by Medical Physicists for Medical Physics Specialists and Medical Physics Registrars undertaking the ACPSEM DIMP Training Education and Assessment Program.

These workshops are also suitable for Nuclear Medicine and Radiology Registrars and health professionals that have an interest in Medical Imaging and Radiation Protection, and would like to improve their knowledge of the subject.

The series of workshops will be held across NSW and will be open to people working for and external to NSW Health.

This workshop is an introduction to Quality assurance programs and their use in Medical Imaging and Therapy.
