WE-E-TRACK 1-5 (Wednesday, 7/28/2021) 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM [Eastern Time (GMT-4)]

Medical physics was not immune to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the profession required creative methods to adapt to working in this new age. This presentation first will introduce a recent publication on the global medical physics response to the pandemic (Medical Physics During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Global Perspectives in Clinical Practice, Education, and Research) and then focus on the North American response in the areas of clinical practice, education, research, and regulatory and accreditation. It will conclude with lessons learned and opportunities identified from the COVID-19 experience.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the impact the pandemic had on various aspects of the profession
2. Review the North American medical physics response for various aspects of the profession
3. Identify lessons learned and opportunities to improve future responses for similar emergent situations
