The AAPM Spring Clinical Meeting, to be held at the Denver Marriott Tech Center, will include practical information designed to help medical physicists integrate emerging technologies into the clinical environment. A program has been developed to address regulatory and accreditation related issues, and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in support of practice quality improvement.
Items of Interest
- There will be a Best Poster competition! A panel of judges will score poster displays according to criteria that includes clinical relevance, originality, and organization/presentation of the material. All abstracts submitted for posters must have a clinical focus.
- The Young Investigator Award presentation will take place on Monday in the Exhibit area during the afternoon break, 3:30-4:00pm.
- *NEW* 2014 AAPM Spring Clinical Meeting Plan Challenge
Are you ready to be challenged? The organizers of the AAPM Spring Clinical Meeting in March have decided to host and present the results of the first ever Plan Challenge focused on a Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) case. Learn more.
The Spring Clinical Meeting focuses on clinical topics of current interest and offers additional opportunities to meet continuing education requirements. This Meeting is designed to provide easy access for clinical physicists in a compact format for up-to-date clinical education.
Denver, Colorado has been selected as the location and provides participants with flexible travel schedules from locations throughout the US. The program permits participants to meet continuing educational requirements for their clinical specialties, including SAMS on a wide variety of topics, and accommodates attendees who may be limited to participating only on the weekend, or only during weekdays. The full meeting program runs from Saturday March 15 through Tuesday March 18 and encompasses a series of topics of current clinical interest.
New this year!
- The Radiation Therapy track program highlights the clinical application of several AAPM Science Council Task Group Reports, Advanced Treatment Planning and Safety topics.
The program is in the beginning stages of development and we believe that this is a great opportunity to get updates, and share and compare ideas with colleagues. We hope that you will be able to attend and contribute to the success of the Spring Clinical Meeting and help to make this a continuing opportunity for the medical physics community’s education.
