TU‐C‐211A‐01: Becoming a Better Teacher


Conference Paper

Every medical physicist is a teacher, either formally in the classroom or informally in the clinic. Some physicists skillfully fulfill their educational obligations, while others struggle with their teaching responsibilities. However, everyone can be a good teacher — what are required are determination, dedication and diligence. This objective was the focus of a 3‐day AAPM Educational Summit held immediately after the 2008 AAPM annual meeting in Houston. It will also be the goal of a second Educational Summit scheduled to follow the 2010 annual meeting in Philadelphia. Discussion of the outcomes of the 2008 Educational Summit, and plans for the 2010 Summit, are the topics of this educational session scheduled for the 2009 annual meeting. This session will include solicitation of suggestions from the audience for the 2010 Educational Summit. © 2009, American Association of Physicists in Medicine. All rights reserved.
