Each year, the third Wednesday of August is designated as the day for celebrating medical dosimetry professionals around the world, recognizing the importance of their profession and honoring their contributions. Medical dosimetry is an exciting and amazing profession to work in. Dosimetrists are members of a team that contributes to cancer survivorship on a daily basis.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the National Medical Dosimetrist's Day webinar series. For those who attended, you must complete the test by August 31 in order to receive CE credit. Starting September 1, the webinars will be available in the AAMD Resource Database for informational viewing (CE credit not available).
