http://medicalphysicsweb.org

Readers of the 4th Edition of Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology who are particularly interested in Medical Physics will find the website http://medicalphysicsweb.org interesting. This "community website" is maintained by the Institute of Physics, the United Kingdom's professional organization for physicists. The IOP created several community websites to "promote innovation, growth and networking, ...[and to] provide both a valuable information source and an international forum within which community members can share and exchange their views."

Medicalphysicsweb provides "a mix of in-depth news, analysis, opinion and primary research papers across the key disciplines of medical physics." The site contains editorials, job postings, a buyer's guide, featured journal articles, and research and industry news. Students who are studying from Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology will find this website an easy and free way to become familiar with Medical Physics as a profession. You can become a member (no cost, but there is a registration procedure) and receive a weekly "What's New" newsletter. I highly recommend it.
