By the order of Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation No. 445 dated May 11, 2022, the scientific specialty 1.3.21 - Medical physics (physical & mathematical and technical sciences) was included in the nomenclature of scientific specialties for which academic degrees are awarded in our country. We congratulate all the country's medical physicists on this long-awaited event, as well as the entire initiative group of organizers of this process (including our laboratory), who finally managed to "break through" this issue after many years of unsuccessful attempts! The hitherto unseen injustice that existed when, despite the presence in the leading universities of the country (Moscow State University, MEPhI, etc.) of graduating departments in medical physics, there was no such specialty in the Higher Attestation Commission, and young specialists were forced to go to postgraduate school in other specialties, is now brought out of the shadows. We hope that with the advent of this order and as dissertation councils are formed, this injustice and stupidity will be eliminated.
