Small doses of medical physics is always good for you

A little over a year ago I received an e-mail from Sean Tanny asking whether I would be interested in starting a podcast talking about medical physics. It was timely as I was struggling with my PhD work (in medical physics of course) and reading a book - Radium Girls - about dial painters in radium watch factories. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed at the time and busy, but as my life seems to revolve around medical physics, I said, yes, of course, we need a podcast. After a few e-mails and phone calls the project was put on the backburner until Sean approached Andrea Herrick and Nicholas Sperling and two became four. A year later, our initial idea has become reality in Hormesis Podcast.

With our variety of experience, we strive to cover topics of interest to all sorts of different physicists from students to clinical and non-clinical physicists. Early episodes include whether or not there are enough residency slots (Is the Residency Crunch at an End?), IMRT QA (The Definition of Insanity ... and TG-218), Radiomics, and, of course, Radium Girls by Kate Moore.

We hope that you will tune in and join the conversation. Topics can be suggested on our website.

The AAPM was kind enough to let us write an article but does not mean that they support our efforts, or the views expressed in the podcast.
