A Message From Our President

AAPM is preparing an exciting annual meeting for this summer, which will be virtual again this year due to the pandemic. The virtual format of this meeting will provide outstanding scientific, professional, and educational content, along with an engaging real-time connection to a global conference audience.

The theme for this year’s meeting is “Creative science. Advancing medicine.” Physicists over the decades have contributed enormously to the development of modern medicine. This year’s meeting will explore the ways in which we can bring our creativity and scientific expertise to continue building medicine of the future. Our Presidential Symposium will focus on the topic of creativity in science, and our various meeting sessions will explore our roles as scientific innovators in both research and the clinic.

AAPM will provide five days of content through a NEW online platform, which will allow medical physicists around the globe to share ideas, interact with colleagues and friends, and learn about innovative products. If meeting participants are unable to participate in everything presented in that five-day period, the registration fee also includes access to content On-Demand. Medical physicists residing in recognized developing countries will have full access to the AAPM 2021 Annual meeting for a reduced registration fee of only $100. New this year: AAPM is offering "post-meeting access" to the meeting content for purchase by AAPM members and non-members. You may purchase access and continue to receive credit for the latest science, clinical knowledge, and professional development.

Would we rather see all of you in person? Of course. But together we can make the most of the exciting program planned for you by your peers. I look forward to seeing you at this year’s virtual meeting, and until then, stay safe and healthy.

James T. Dobbins, III, PhD
2021 AAPM President

NEW This Year

Starting in 2021, meeting content will be available only to Meeting Registrants for one-year following the meeting regardless of AAPM membership status.

Registrants

After the meeting, Registrants will continue to have post-meeting access to the meeting content via the AAPM website as a benefit of their meeting registration.

Earn your credits the easy way…..

For designated content, Registrants are eligible to receive continuing education credit (e.g., CAMPEP MPCEC hours, MDCB, and ASRT Category A credits*) and self-assessment modules (SAM) during the meeting and for six weeks following via the meeting online evaluation system. The online evaluation system will close at 11:59 pm ET, Friday, September 10, 2021. Credits will be posted by September 16.

Registrants are strongly encouraged to use the online evaluation system process to greatly simplify earning your credits.

Continue to earn credits, but passing quiz now required….

After six weeks, the content will move out of the meeting platform to the AAPM website. Registrants can then continue to earn medical physics continuing educations credits (MPCEC) and self-assessment modules (SAM).

During this phase, to successfully earn MPCEC or SA-CE, a registrant:

  • Must correctly answer quiz questions; 100% pass rate.
  • Cannot attempt the same quiz in the same 24-hour block; you must wait a day before attempting the same quiz.

* ASRT has modified the criteria for earning credits for on demand content. AAPM will apply for CAT A credits for watching Simu live content during its scheduled time and performing the required evaluation. AAPM will not apply for CAT A credits for sessions viewed on demand after their scheduled time.

Non-Registrants

Starting in 2021, Non-Registrants, regardless of AAPM membership status, will be able to access the meeting content after an interval of time via the AAPM website.

  • AAPM members will gain access through the AAPM Virtual Library one year after the meeting.
  • Non-members will gain access two years after the meeting.

Want access to the 2021 meeting content earlier?

Both AAPM members and non-members may purchase Post-Meeting Access six-weeks following the meeting to access meeting content on the AAPM website.

With the purchase of Post-Meeting Access, both AAPM members and non-members are eligible to earn self-assessment modules (SAM) through successful quiz completion as described above.
