Pieces of Interest from COMP for the week of August 1 – Call for Resident Education Sub-Committee Co-Chair/Message from the CCPM President/A Quintessential Medical Physics Task
- The COMP Resident Education sub-committee is searching for a co-chair for the September 2022- 2023 period. This is an excellent opportunity to network with fellow residents, students, and physicists, and learn about the various cancer institutions in Canada. It is also a fantastic way to become involved in COMP and spring into other COMP committees. Please send an email to Clara or Eyesha to indicate your interest.
- Next up in the July issue of InterACTIONS: Message from the CCPM President
- “A quintessential Medical Physics task: water tank scanning during linac commissioning. Pictured below are two in room monitors: the upper monitor displays a zoomed out view of the linac and water tank setup and the second lower monitor shows a zoomed in view of just the water tank. Despite the animated look, these are real - live photos. The lighting was just really interesting on this particular day.” Thank you to Crystal Angers for the photo submission and description!
