Student Events


The COMP Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is the premier conference for medical physics in Canada, providing a unique opportunity for students to learn more about the field, meet other trainees from across the country, and network with experienced medical physicists. We are thrilled to present a full day of student-centered events at this year’s COMP Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) in Regina, Saskatchewan.
