AAPM Newsletter

Jessica Clements, EditorThe AAPM Newsletter is a source of information focusing on AAPM activities and items of interest to AAPM members. It contains timely information and serves as a forum for lively debate. The newsletter is published bi-monthly on the website and became open to the public in 2019.

The AAPM Newsletter is comprised of regular articles and activity reports from AAPM officers, including the President, Chairman of the Board, and the Treasurer, as well as periodic communications from various committee chairpersons. Also featured are pertinent articles from AAPM’s Executive Director and Government Relations Program Manager. In addition, each issue may include a focus on a particular Special Interest Group with content provided by various AAPM working groups and subcommittees. AAPM encourages its members to submit items of interest, including photographs, whenever possible, to the editor for consideration. Submissions related to the field of medical physics from non-members will be considered by the Newsletter Editorial Board on a case-by-case basis. Moreover, a limited number of AAPM non-profit and corporate affiliate only advertisements are included in each edition of the AAPM Newsletter, providing readers with timely information on important products, services, and events.

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