About Us

Medical Physics Publishing (MPP) was founded in 1985 by Dr. John Cameron, professor emeritus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a visionary in the medical physics field. MPP’s mission is to promote educational and scientific knowledge sharing through the availability of quality texts at an affordable cost. We are a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization.

Our books are written by and for physicists, residents, radiologists, and technologists. We provide the opportunity for our authors to publish texts, reference materials, and study guides that keep the medical physics community up-to-date. MPP maintains a comprehensive backlist of materials in medical physics and closely related fields.

We are partnered with other nonprofits in the medical physics field to help further their missions. In 1999, MPP became the official distributor and publisher of books for The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM). We also publish works for the Health Physics Society and the Radiological and Medical Physics Society of New York (RAMPS).
