The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (MACAAPM).
MACAAPM is the chapter for Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, and parts of Delaware and West Virginia.
Represent Medical Physicists in the Mid-Atlantic area
The MACAAPM Executive Committee consists of a past President, an acting President, President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and Chapter Representative to the Board. The chapter membership is 300+ strong!
Yearly, MACAAPM hosts an Annual Meeting (typically the first Thursday/Friday of October), the MedPhysSlam chapter competition, and a Mock ABR Part III Oral Board Exam. Occasional dinner meetings are hosted, please contact the Executive Committee with any ideas you may have!
Encourage Early Career Medical Physicists
Annual meetings provide valuable learning and networking opportunities. At each annual meeting, an Early Career Investigator Symposium is hosted, encouraging students and trainees in medical physics to present their work to the chapter membership. The MedPhysSlam encourages scientific communication skills development, allying our field with the general public.
Shout-out and sincere thanks to @trueMACAAPM & @LindsayPhys for helping to coordinate local #MedPhys volunteers that informed and enlightened #Physics undergrads about #MedicalPhysics education & careers during #PhysCon2022!
Our COVID protocols for the MACAAPM meeting include: masking for everyone but the speaker in the conference room, HEPA filters in conference room and break room, daily rapid antigen testing for all attendees. Our dinner is in a room where the walls will be open to the outside. 😷
