For Comment: Medical Physics Associate Training Outline

Published on:

Within the past 4 years, the Organization of Medical Physics Associates of Canada, OMPAC, conducted several surveys. One purpose of these surveys was to identify the physics associate's job responsibilities across Canada. One finding was that the responsibilities vary widely between different institutions. The presented training outlines are partly derived from the results of these surveys. These outlines are not intended to set a minimum standard that shall be met within each radiation treatment facility, nor are they intended to be a required component. The intent of the document is to outline a benchmark for training physics associates overseen by qualified medical physicists. The document has been reviewed by COMP’s Professional Affair Committee (PAC) members and now is presented to COMP members for review. Please send comments to homeira.mosalaei@ompac.ca by June 15th. Our goal is to have an official endorsement by COMP for this training document following a period of review.
