Today's healthcare work environment is ever-changing and without a doubt will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. How physicists are employed, evaluated, and valued are important aspects of our careers. With increasing demands and challenges being placed on the medical physics workforce, it is important to have the skills and knowledge to prepare for potential challenges to the status-quo of our employment status. Surviving in a world of change, consolidation, increased workload, and financial constraints is not a given, and preparing for those changes and challenges will benefit individuals as well as the medical physics community at large.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the challenges of succeeding in different work environments.
2. Learn strategies to help define the role of a medical physicist to various administrators, physicians, and department staff and directors.
3. Learn how to successfully communicate and interact with University, Hospital, and Department administrators.
