Devise working models and training programs that encourage and facilitate the practice of MP3.0.
The Smart Practice initiative is dedicated to exploring new responsibilities and working models that utilize the unique skillsets of medical physicists to improve patient care. Through the creation of novel educational programs, promotion of innovative work, and investigation of new roles, the goal of the Smart Practice Subcommittee is to assist therapy and diagnostic medical physicists in maximizing their impact in the field of medicine.
Medical physicists possess a comprehensive understanding of the science and technology that dominate the fields of diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy, but they lack the necessary communication training to fully utilize this knowledge.
Many routine clinical medical physics responsibilities have become so well established that they no longer require specialized medical physics knowledge.
Medical physicists are often viewed as professionals that only work behind the scenes to ensure effective imaging or the safe delivery of radiation therapy.
