MedPhys Slam

Welcome contestants! The AAPM Physics Slam is an opportunity for you to present your personal hard work in a brief, 3-minute, presentation with the potential to represent your local chapter at the national meeting.

All that is required is that you are a student, resident, or junior member of the Rocky Mountain AAPM and must submit a video of a presentation summarizing your own work. The video will then be critiqued by several judges who are not familiar with medical physics. As medical physicists we are continuously working to better our field with real implications for those outside our industry, so here is a chance to practice boiling down your research into a brief summary that everyone can appreciate.

Presentations should be submitted by early May (official date TBD) and the winner will be announced at the RMAAPM Spring Meeting. You do not need to be present at the Spring Meeting to participate, judges will review video submissions online. The winner will be awarded free travel, one night accommodation, and one day registration to the national AAPM convention to represent the Rocky Mountain chapter!

Any additional questions can be sent to our officers at 2019.rmc_officers@aapm.org. Below are the official rules and expectations of the slam. Good luck!
