Bangladesh requires 200 radiotherapy facilities, 4 are in use; 400 medical physicists are needed, 3 are employed. On a private basis, a DGMP working group started in 1996, annual workshops on «SQ»Medical physics in cancer diagnosis and treatment«SQ», joined by many working physicists interested to become medical physicists. Basic topics were the principles, applications, acceptance, dosimetry and planning of 6 0 Co radiotherapy. In 1996, the Bangladesh Association of Physicists in Medicine (BMPA) was founded, a young scientific society requiring international co-operation. The long experience in Medical Physics in India, its neighbouring country, could be verfy helpful in providing excellent medical physics courses. To absorb new technology and science, it is necessary to change the education policy: creativity and innovativeness must be valued more than the old knowledge, being replaced quickly by new knowledge and new technologies.
