Welcome to AIPM website



"The AIPM is an independent, non-political, non-governmental professional body, engaged in the application of physics in medicine and biology and is comprised of Iranians and those of Iranian descent who are professionally engaged in medical physics throughout the world. Other Iranian scientists and professionals who are interested in the goals and objectives of the AIPM, as set in Article 4, and who meet the membership requirements, as specified in Article 5, can join this association. AIPM is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization based in the U.S. and its resources are strictly used to foster and promote the objectives of the association."

Mission Statement

The mission of the Association is to advance the practice of physics in medicine and biology by encouraging innovative research and development, disseminating scientific and technical information, fostering the education and professional development of medical physicists, to promote communication between the various branches of medical physics and allied subjects, and advocate the highest quality medical physics services for patients.



Welcome from the President

Dear AIPM members and friends:

Welcome to our website. It is an honor and my privilege to be able to serve you all and have the opportunity to help expand our vibrant community. I would like to thank the outgoing President, Dr. Bijan Arjomandy and his predecessors, for leading our organization over the past two decades. I would also like to thank all the outgoing and incoming executive committee members. This organization cannot run without you!

Going forward, it is my belief that we need to find new avenues to engage our younger colleagues and to let them know of our commitment to offer them our support. AIPM was started in 2001 by a small group of passionate and ‘delsooz’ physicists that wanted to create a platform of assistance for medical physicists of Iranian descent all around the world. During the annual AAPM conference in Nashville in 2018, we counted almost 175 AAPM members of Iranian descent from North America. The majority of these folks come into contact with AIPM at some point in their careers, either as students, residents, researchers, administrators, visitors, or chief physicists. And yet we all know of a resident or fellow or faculty member somewhere that comes to AAPM meetings, presents a poster or lecture, and does not attend or does not even know of our activities. But thanks to the efforts of our senior colleagues I think that today we have reached critical mass in our numbers; we offer scholarships, offer scientific support to friends and students in other countries, have corporate sponsors, will have regular basis invited lectures during AAPM meetings, and offer advice and recommendations to our junior members climbing their way up to success!

Our professional community of Iranian medical physicists has great achievements to share with each other and we need to support each other, not so much because of ongoing events in the world around us, but because we are that good. No doubt, some of the best graduate students I have ever seen in my career have been Iranians.

Please reach out to me if you have any ideas to help AIPM grow and prosper.

Nima Kasraie, PhD, DABR, DABSNM
