Students and Trainees Subcommittee (STSC)
Who we are and what we do
Who are we?
The STSC is a group of medical physics graduate students and trainees (residents and post-docs) dedicated to improving the education and professional development of our peers.
The mission of STSC
STSC encourages communication and collaboration among current and prospective medical physics trainees and students. As a group of young medical physicists, our goal is to disseminate information to and amplify the voice of current students and trainees beginning their careers in medical physics. We want to encourage student and trainee involvement in the AAPM to ensure a successful future for our profession.
What does STSC do?
STSC encourages communication between students and trainees in medical physics by sponsoring national events such as:
- The Annual Student Meeting, held in conjunction with the national AAPM meeting. Invited speakers share their thoughts on student-specific topics such as life after grad school, board certification requirements, and perspectives on an evolving medical physics profession
- The Annual Student Night Out, an event exclusive to students and trainees at the national AAPM meeting. Gathering informally for food, drinks, and fun, this event promotes social networking among all of the young professionals in attendance
STSC supports current and prospective students and trainees by:
- Demonstrating the value of students and trainees in the AAPM
- Providing information on graduate programs, residencies, internships, jobs, research opportunities, and awards to enhance professional and academic development
- Connecting students and trainees through social networking sites
- Educating students and trainees through a Wikipedia page that includes student survival guides to ease the transition into medical physics
