Hallo everyone,
I am a new member at Physics Forums.

I am considering immigrating with my family to Australia and work as a Medical Physicist. My bachelor degree is in Physics and I have MSc and PhD in Medical Physics. I am currently working in Greece as a medical physicist (for the last 14 years) in a nuclear medicine & PET/CT department.

I would to ask if anyone know not one the salary for medical physicist in Australia but what are all the necessary requirements you have to meet in order to work there.
Thanks in advance

Hi Kostas,

The best place to look is probably The Austanasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine. My experience with medical physics "down under" is limited to a couple friends who have worked there. Certification by the ACPSEM, or an equivalently recognized body (such as the ABR or CCPM) is usually listed for advertised postions in radiation oncology physics. I'm not sure if the same requirements are needed for nuclear medicine.

Choppy thank you very much for the quick reply. I have also experience in radiation oncology physics since my MSc is a 3 years course which includes radiation protection, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy (radiation oncology).
