Career Advancement

Career advancement is a great way to continue to learn and grow in the field. While at your current job there are a number of ways to show leadership, which might help open an opportunity for you in the future. Below are a few ideas of how to continue to pursue this goal.

Volunteering for a committee within AAMD is a great way to show you continued interest in advancing not only your career but our profession as a whole. There are many options of committees depending on what your strengths are and where you can provide the most help.

Presenting at national or regional meetings is another way to show your commitment to our field and to your desire to continue learning. If presenting is not something you are interested in, there is always the option to submit for a poster project as well.

Continuing your education is an obvious step for one who hopes to have a leadership role, either as a lead dosimetrist or a manager. There are currently three Master’s level programs available to either a CMD or someone who has a Bachelor’s in a related field that is Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) accredited. Below are links to each program if you would like more information.
