The AAPM Spring Clinical Meeting, to be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in sunny Kissimmee, Florida, will include practical information designed to help medical physicists integrate emerging technologies into the clinical environment. A program has been developed to address regulatory and accreditation related issues, and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in support of practice quality improvement.

Why Attend?

The Spring Clinical Meeting focuses on clinical topics of current interest and offers additional opportunities to meet continuing education requirements. This Meeting is designed to provide easy access for clinical physicists in a compact format for up-to-date clinical education.  

Kissimmee, Florida has been selected as the location and provides participants with flexible travel schedules from locations throughout the US.  The program permits participants to meet continuing educational requirements for their clinical specialties, including SAMS on a wide variety of topics, and accommodates attendees who may be limited to participating only on the weekend, or only during weekdays.  The full meeting program runs from Saturday March 30th through Tuesday April 2nd and encompasses a series of topics of current clinical interest.  

The program is in the beginning stages of development and we believe that this is a great opportunity to get updates, and share and compare ideas with colleagues. We hope that you will be able to attend and contribute to the success of the Spring Clinical Meeting and help to make this a continuing opportunity for the medical physics community’s education.

What's New in SAM

Again this year! SAM questions are no longer embedded in SAM presentations, so audience interaction is not needed. SAM questions will be included as part of the online evaluation survey. AAPM will use QR code tickets for tracking of SAM session attendance. Registration is required in order to obtain SAM credit. The SAM session Admin fee is $20.

Please note: At the beginning of each SAM session, you will need to drop one QR code ticket into the designated bins near the session entrance for attendance verification.
