Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is vital to the medical physics profession if it is to embrace the pace of change occurring in medical practice. As CPD is the planned acquisition of knowledge, experience and skills required for professional practice throughout one's working life it promotes excellence and protects the profession and public against incompetence. Furthermore, CPD is a recommended prerequisite of registration schemes (Caruana et al. 2014) and is implied in the Council… Expand

TLDR
There was good correspondence between education and training programmes, i.e. a division between a BSc phase, an MSc phase and a clinical phase after completion of the MSc, and differences between NRSs were primarily seen in the availability and composition of a supervising committee and in theavailability of guidelines for handling professional misconduct.

TLDR
It is essential that physicists be involved, at least to some extent, in treatment planning and clinical dosimetry for each and every patient; otherwise, physicists can no longer be considered clinical specialists. Expand

TLDR
To ensure quality education, a regional curriculum model needs to be developed to harmonise standards and there is still a long way to go towards standardizing medical physics education and clinical training in the region. Expand

TLDR
Global MPs production does not meet clinical needs especially in Latin America/Caribbean and Africa (6% of total MPs workforce and small number of MPs/million of population) and Rough estimations showed that approximately 58,950 MPs will be required by 2035. Expand
Continuing professional development (CPD) in radiography: A collaborative European meta-ethnography literature review.
TLDR
A meta-ethnography approach to literature review was applied focussing upon commonalities rather than discrepancies between research outcomes, which facilitated exploration of context across the geographical region of Europe with national variations in CPD governance. Expand
