The Medical Physics Leadership Academy (MPLA) Committee oversees and organizes the MPLA, a leadership and business knowledge and skill development program specific to medical physicists. AAPM members are leaders and are able to realize and fulfill their personal potential by relating with others in ways that provide meaning, value, and structure to make a difference.

  • Design and implementation of an ongoing MPLA program.
  • Develop and review MPLA core and complementary curriculum covering topics of business administration and leadership development.
  • Review and if necessary develop needed MPLA resources.
