Creating transformational change in the practice of medical physics is by nature intrinsically uncertain. This challenging undertaking requires a multi-pronged approach through subcommittees. SMART is meant to invoke the character of intentionality, intelligence, effectiveness, and leanness in targeting the objectives of MP3.0.
See what the subcommittees
are working on
Devise working models and practice norms that encourage and facilitate the practice of MP3.0.
Define and encourage strong and explicit technical, clinical, and leadership competencies for practicing medical physicists to fully contribute their unique expertise as scientists.
Encourage the development of technological resources that enable the practice of MP3.0 efficiently and consistently.
To develop comprehensive professional expectations for MP3.0 practice through intentional regulations, guidelines, and accreditation.
Advocate for the role and potential of medical physics to non-physicist professions, colleagues (e.g., administrators, physicians), and patients.
To develop a comprehensive communications strategy for MP3.0 to raise awareness among AAPM members of needed changes and evolution required in the medical physics.
Identify and address the needs and opportunities for medical physics research and clinical practice in fields of medicine beyond radiology and radiation oncology.
