Medical Physics Clinical Skills Workbook for Therapy Physics

This workbook was developed as a guide for medical physics master’s degree students in a clinical practicum course and can be very useful to medical physics residents as well. It can easily serve as a companion text for any beginning medical physicist who is new to the clinical setting and whose objective is to learn to safely, competently, and appropriately practice clinical therapy physics. Instead of telling the students how to do things, the workbook serves as a framework for what things should be understood and mastered in the clinic. The workbook poses many questions and outlines various exercises for each topic. The goal of these questions and exercises is to help the student learn how to think like a practicing medical physicist.
