The aims of the Association are as follows:


  • The promotion of the application of the physical sciences in medicine
  • Promotion of Research and Education in the physical sciences in Medicine
  • Establishing and maintaining professional standards
  • Promoting professional development and the interests of the membership.
  • To offer appropriate advice concerning the application of physical sciences to relevant bodies as required

The IAPM produces a biannual newsletter called "Making Waves". This publication aims to provide a platform for the discussion and debate of subject matters relevant to Medical Physicists working in Ireland. The Autumn/Winter 2012 edition of Making waves is now available for download in the members area.
