Excerpt from the statement from the Executive Committee posted on the AAPM Member Bulletin Board System (BBS) on June 30, 2022. This topic will be discussed during the AAPM Town Hall Meeting scheduled for July 13 and the Board meeting on July 14.

AAPM EXCOM recognizes a range of strong opinions across the nation and within the Association on the recent SCOTUS decision that overruled the constitutionality of abortion. AAPM members are expressing concern for the impact this ruling may have for the well-being of participants at AAPM meetings held in future locations. As a premise, the AAPM holds as paramount the best interests of patients and we respect patient autonomy and dignity.

To encourage constructive discussion, the important topic of future meetings and their locations will be discussed at the Town Hall, after the Annual Business Meeting, Wednesday evening, July 13, at the AAPM Annual Meeting, Washington, DC. Remote participation will be available. AAPM members are encouraged to provide their thoughtful opinions at the Town Hall to help inform the AAPM Board for their deliberations on this issue.

This complex and dynamic discussion will benefit from our continuing collegial and professional interactions, to enable a dialog that is respectful and seeks for understanding of diverse perspectives.

COVID-19 Update

  • AAPM currently allows in-person meetings and AAPM-funded travel for those fully vaccinated, with the understanding that individuals may participate virtually if they do not feel comfortable traveling. Meetings at AAPM HQ must follow guidelines established by EXCOM as appropriate to circumstances at the time of the meeting.

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.
