Welcome to the AAPM website members please log in.
AAPM is a scientific and professional organization, founded in 1958, composed of more than 8000 scientists whose clinical practice is dedicated to ensuring accuracy, safety and quality in the use of radiation in medical procedures such as medical imaging and radiation therapy. We are generally known as medical physicists and are uniquely positioned across medical specialties due to our responsibility to connect the physician to the patient through the use of radiation producing technology in both diagnosing and treating people. The responsibility of the medical physicist is to assure that the radiation prescribed in imaging and radiation therapy is delivered accurately and safely.
One of the primary goals of AAPM is the identification and implementation of improvements in patient safety for the medical use of radiation in imaging and radiation therapy.

Update #2 to AAPM Website Outage
In order to accommodate all of the ABR testing dates, AAPM has moved the database migration start to 5pm Thursday, May 24th. The site will reopen on Tuesday, May 29th.
Please see below for updated details.
What is going on?
AAPM is replacing it's 21 year old membership database.
How will this affect me?
The AAPM.org website will be down starting the evening of Thursday, May 24th through the morning of Tuesday, May 29th to enable conversion of data and cutover to the new system. This will also affect your ability to log into Medical Physics.
Will I still be able to email committees and the staff during that time?
Yes as these are operating on different systems.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Your AAPM HQ Staff
