Pieces of Interest for COMP for the Week of August 9 – Radiation Oncology Staffing Model/COMP Corner/Accelerating Women and Minority Physicists Virtual Event
- The Staffing Model Working Group under COMP's Professional Affairs Committee would like to make the following Algorithm for Medical Physics Staffing in Radiation Oncology to its membership and the greater medical physics community. This algorithm was developed by an Ontario working group with default weighting based on staffing levels in Ontario, Canada in 2018-19, and then validated against a survey of other Cancer Centres across Canada, as detailed in Malkoske et al. "COMP Report: An updated algorithm to estimate medical physics staffing levels for radiation oncology," Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics (2021). Feedback on the staffing model is welcome. Any members wishing to give feedback are invited to contact the Chair of the Professional Affairs Committee at email@example.com
- Check out COMP Corner in the July Issue of InterACTIONS!
- Don’t miss the Accelerating Women and Minority Physicists virtual event happening August 19-20!
