AAPM New Member Symposium and Meet the Experts

Tuesday, July 28 • 4:00pm - 5:30pm
New Member Symposium followed by Meet the Experts
Room 211A, Convention Center

New Members of the AAPM are sometimes overwhelmed by the size and complexity of the Association and may be discouraged from taking full advantage of its benefits or from participating in some activities. The AAPM recognizes this, and wishes to make the Association more accessible to new members. At the New Member Symposium, you will meet the AAPM President, the Executive Director and a number of senior officers. The Symposium will focus on those services the organization provides that are especially helpful for new members, and on how new members can become active in the organization. Informal discussions with AAPM leadership and staff are part of the symposium. Refreshments will be served.

Meet the Experts! Immediately following the New Member Symposium, four experts will move to the four corners of the room for informal discussions on

The second is to provide updates on issues of concern to both students and educators. The issues are: the current status of SDAMPP, progress in the development of new medical physics residencies, and the development of professional doctorates. The third goal is to hear comments, concerns, and suggestions from students, educators, and other interested parties. Toward that end, the symposium will end with a panel discussion with an open microphone for audience participation.
