About OMPI
The Ottawa Medical Physics Institute (OMPI) is the dynamic network of medical physicists in Canada’s capital region. Officially, it is a Carleton University Research Centre based in the Department of Physics. Founded in 1989, the OMPI now constitutes over 40 medical physicists and associate scientists in the Ottawa region. Our members are located at The Ottawa Hospital and The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, NRC, Health Canada, Natural Resources Canada, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (Chalk River), and Nordion, as well as at Carleton University. Collectively, the medical physics community in Ottawa is one of the strongest and most diverse in Canada, spanning imaging physics, cancer therapy physics, medical biophysics, and some aspects of health physics. The intent of OMPI is that by collaborating on common research and academic matters we can accomplish much for our field, our institutions, and for the public. Amongst its other activities, the OMPI runs a very successful monthly seminar series on medical physics research, and coordinates the MSc and PhD programs in medical physics within the Carleton Physics department.

Parking Options
