SDAMPP Board announces completion of home page revisions

March 10, 2016: SDAMPP Board announces completion of the 2015/2016 home page upgrade project designed to make information sharing between academic medical physics programs more readily accessible. The page provides member access to programmatic member contact information, access to SDAMPP statistical reports and useful slides from presentations at SDAMPP meetings and webinars. The update was designed by the SDAMPP Publications Committee and implemented under contract with AAPM by IT staff members (Farhana Khan and Tammy Conquest). GIVE IT A TRY!

June 6, 2016: SDAMPP Board approves distribution of the SDAMPP Student Guide to a Medical Physics Career. The student guide was prepared under supervision of the SDAMPP Trainee Affairs Committee with the intent of assisting program applicants and students working through the increasingly complex educational demands of medical physics education. Graduate programs are authorized to distribute the guide to prospective students. Electronic copies of the guide will be e-mailed to all members and at Reports.
