Ghana Society for Medical Physics (GSMP) is Ghana’s professional body for medical physicists, supporting and representing our members and bringing together medical physicists from all over Ghana. GSMP was established in 2011 with ultimate aim of promoting the application of physics to medicine. The Society serves as checks and balances on the activities of professional medical physicists and contributes to the training of medical physics students in Ghana. With the passage of the Health Professions Regulatory Bodies Act 2013 (Act 857), GSMP is mandated to regulate activities of medical physicists. Internationally, GSMP is affiliated to Federation of African Medical Physics Organizations (FAMPO) and International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP).
GSMP operates with Constitution, Code of Ethics and Practice Standards, and achieves its objective by:
To make the best cancer diagnostic and therapeutic knowledge accessible to all those who need it. Our goal is to connect radiation professionals by harnessing all of our information and expertise and making it easily accessible. This will:
– To secure a strong, diverse and sustainable supply of medical physicists at all levels
– We have a comprehensive understanding of the skills and talents needed for medical physics to prosper for the benefit of humanity.
– We have a wealth of expertise across many disciplines, in research centres, universities, hospitals and beyond, and a clear vision for how to ensure everyone has access to a relevant, engaging and inspiring medical physics education.
Our goal is to connect highly qualified professionals to secure medical physics talent pipeline. This will:
To most effectively and efficiently contribute to the safe and effective use of radiation in order to achieve the best diagnostic or therapeutic outcome of the prescribed medical procedure, we will bring together medical physicists and help them to share their knowledge and ideas.
From the first Ghana Society for Medical Physics meeting in 2011 to the present day, we have used our two core strengths to advance excellence in the diagnostic radiology and radiation therapy:
These core strengths reflect our strategic priorities as an organization – how we can best use our talents and resources to achieve our mission: by connecting radiation professionals through knowledge, skills and community.
Our goal is to grow and support our society to be a powerful, unified voice on behalf of the medical physicists in Ghana. This will:
GSMP members pledge a commitment to excellence through professional skill development and collaboration in service to our employers, our healthcare organizations and the communities we serve.
