AAPM Newsletter

Jennifer Pursley, PhD, EditorThe AAPM Newsletter is a bi-monthly electronic publication focusing on AAPM activities and items of interest to medical physicists. The Newsletter serves as a platform for AAPM members to share effective medical physics practices; report on emerging trends; highlight the diversity of the field; spotlight important physics research; and is the primary source for AAPM working groups, subcommittees, and officers to provide updates to the AAPM membership.

AAPM encourages its members to submit items of interest, including article suggestions and photographs, to the Editor for consideration whenever possible. The Newsletter Editorial Board will consider submissions related to the field of medical physics from non-members on a case-by-case basis. Moreover, a limited number of AAPM non-profit and corporate affiliate advertisements are included in each edition of the AAPM Newsletter, providing readers with timely information on essential products, services, and events.

For additional information about the AAPM Corporate Affiliate Newsletter Advertising specifications, please click here.

The Editor reviews all advertisements and submissions to be considered for publication.
