Despite a number of our colleagues who thought “we’re all mad here”  and it was too hard, we chased the white rabbit down the rabbit hole in 2003/2004 and here we are, 15 years later. Look how far we have come! A NSW perspective In NSW, we are close to achieving that dream of a qualified Radiation Oncology Medical Physics (ROMP) workforce, with our workforce in-training largely in Registar training positions. The expected benefits have been realised—shorter time to cer - tification and a more versatile physicist with a solid knowl- edge base across the roles and responsibilities they would be expected to assume. The NSW Ministry of Health and Aus- tralian Government have supported the NSW public sector Look how far we have come through each stage; from implementation, further development to consolidation.
