The association was formed in 1961 when the Swedish Health Medical Physicist (SHMP) covenant was awarded the Swedish Society of Radiation Physics (SFfR), which took charge of the scientific part of radio physics and Swedish Medical Physics Association who took care of the union part. The association and the union have since cooperated closely. Swedish Society for Radiation Physics, SFfR, is a non-profit, politest and union affiliation. The aim is to promote radio physics development, to promote a stimulating exchange of experiences and knowledge in the field, both nationally and internationally. Here meet radiation physicists from various fields and exchange experiences with each other. The association organizes scientific meetings with lectures and discussions and disseminate other means information on radio physics different application areas such as research, radiation protection and health care.
As a member you get access to a number of interesting documents (up announcements, activity reports, minutes, exciting historical documents and images, etc.). The association also runs a website for schools and general - (Virtual museum and archive). The association is a section of the Swedish Medical Association ( SLS ), a member of the International Organization for Medical Physics ( IOMP ), the International Union for Physical and Engineering Science in Medicine ( IUPESM ) and the National Association for Clinical Physics ( NCAP ). The association collaborates with the Swedish Medical Physics Association, among others, about the CPD program for qualified medical physicists, as well as joint meetings and conferences.
