In the current climate of Medical Physics employment, establishing an entry-level position may be a daunting task for all individuals seeking to enter the profession. Whether enrolled in a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program or transitioning from a related field of study, the pathways into Medical Physics have become narrow and competitive. The purpose of this meeting is to summarize available post-graduate training opportunities en route to ABR certification. Our distinguished speakers will also be happy to answer general questions and address the major concerns of all students and trainees in attendance.
