Dear NMO Presidents,
The EUTEMPE-NET consortium (www.eutempe-net.eu) is proud to announce the start of the third run of its set of modules designed to help Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology physicists acquire CPD and achieve Medical Physics Expert status. This email announces the first module MPE01 – the EFOMP-EUTEMPE LEADERSHIP MODULE. The online phase will start 1 November 2018, whilst the face-to-face phase will be held in Prague 4 – 8 February 2019 (4 – 6 for those not taking the final assessment).
You can find an updated Module presentation, Extended Module Abstract including face-to-face programme in Prague and Gallery of photos from past editions here: http://eutempe-net.eu/mpe01/
115 EBAMP CPD Points (79 CPD credit points for those participants who do not sit for or do not pass the assessment;
This module aims to help the future MPE in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology (including imaging outside the D&IR department proper) acquire the knowledge, skills, competences and attitudes necessary to exercise a strategic leadership role within the profession in own country and in Europe both in terms of professional issues faced by the profession and own personal development as a leader. The content of the module will provide a framework for discussions for all the other modules. In the onsite phase participants will have the opportunity to interact with and discuss issues facing the profession and personal development directly with European leaders. The participants would also be updated with the latest EU directives, guidelines and policy statements impacting the role to ensure they are at the forefront of these developments. The module will achieve its learning objectives using a combination of online and onsite readings, fora, presentations and case studies. The online component will consist of sets of compulsory readings. Each set of readings will be accompanied by an online forum for difficulties and real world case studies to promote reflection on their own attitudes towards leadership and discussion in preparation for the assessment. The online phase will be asynchronous so that participants would not need to take time off their clinical duties and there will not be a problem with time zones. Module participants can put forward the issues they are facing in their own country and receive feedback and advice. As preparation for the assessment, further case studies will be discussed with the panel. Onsite presentations will be sent to the participants 2 weeks before the start of the onsite phase.
Number of participants will be limited to a maximum of approximately 25 to ensure a worthwhile experience for the participants. Application deadline is 20 October 2018. First come first served basis
