The AAPM Science Council Associates Mentorship Program (SCAMP) recognizes and cultivates outstanding researchers at an early stage in their careers, with the goal of promoting a long-term commitment to science within AAPM. The program uses the process of ‘shadowing’ to integrate the Associates into the scientific activities of the organization. The program will include eight Associates, each assigned to shadow one member from the AAPM Science Council, Research Committee, Therapy Physics Committee, Imaging Physics Committee, or Technology Assessment Committee. The Associate participates in selected meetings of the Mentor’s Committee and joins and contributes to one Task Group (chosen with input from the mentor). The Associate would shadow AAPM-related activities of the mentor, including committee phone calls, abstract review, Young Investigator judging, committee activities at the Annual Meeting, etc. The SCAMP program will be reviewed. Examples of the mentor/mentee experiences will be presented. Lessons learned and potential for expansion to other AAPM Councils will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about Science Council Associates Mentorship Program (SCAMP)
2. Learn about first-hand experiences from mentors and mentees
3. Learn about opportunities to expand SCAMP program to other AAPM Councils
