Medical Physics for World Benefit is an entirely volunteer-run organization and is a registered society in Canada and in the USA. We have established the opportunity to join MPWB as either Full Members or an Associate Member. Full members are for Medical Physicist with voting privileges, and Associate Members include students and corporate members and other allied health professionals who would like to be involved with MPWB. To see the benefits of membership, see our How You Can Help page.
Benefits for being a member include
For those of you who have completed the MPWB form online as a contact in the past and have populated the membership questionnaire in the application form, you will be prompted to once again complete a "new" application. We apologize for this inconvenience, however, in order to keep our expenses as low as possible, we have 'archived' our contact database on our web provider's platform (Wild Apricot), whose rates are based on the total number of contacts. We recommend completing the form again since we have added a few fields to the membership questionnaire, and your membership profile may have changed between now and when you completed the application. Another option is to leave the questionnaire blank and email us to retrieve your membership profile, but this may take some time to complete, and you will still need to verify the fields in the questionnaire are correct. We thank you for your understanding and patience in this.
