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.
Changes Coming Soon to the AAPM Online Learning Center! The Online Learning Center is moving to a new platform! We have outgrown our current platform and are in the process of switching to a new learning management system. During the transition, beginning Monday, December 5th, the Online Learning System will be unavailable. We look forward to providing an improved learning experience for the Online Learning Center subscribers when the system reopens on Monday, December 12th.
