The International Union for Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine (IUPESM) is an intenrational non-governmental organization - the umbrella organization for the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) and International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE). [1]

IUPESM was established in 1980, following a discussion during the Combined Meeting of the 12th International Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering and 5th International Conference on Medical Physics held in Jerusalem in 1979.[2] In 1983 IUPESM became an associate member and in 1999 a full member of the International Science Council (former International Council for Science, ICSU).

International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering]] (IFMBE)[edit]

The International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) is a federation of national and transnational societies.[3]

Health and Technology journal[edit]

Health and Technology is the official journal of the IUPESM.[4].
