In the fall of 2020, the American Association of Medical Dosimetrists (AAMD) Formal Education Committee and the MedDos Infinity Task Group surveyed medical dosimetry educators in the United States to assess trends, needs, and challenges in clinical education. This report was prepared by Jacky Nyamwanda, MS, CAGS, CMD, and Lori Simmons, MS, CMD, with the assistance of Colleen Brogan-Raasch, BS, RT(R)(T), CMD, and Whitney O’Donnell, BS. The insights gained from this important survey, along with the Workforce Study findings, will be used to develop resources to support the formal education and training of medical dosimetrists.

2020 AAMD Workforce Study Reports 

Under the direction of the MedDos Infinity Task Group, the AAMD undertook a comprehensive study of the Medical Dosimetry workforce in 2020. The overarching goal of the Workforce Study was to help the AAMD and other stakeholders understand the current state of the Medical Dosimetry workforce as the profession prepares for future growth and development. Data was gathered from Medical Dosimetrists and other Radiation Oncology professionals and analyzed in the six reports listed below. What did the AAMD gain from this research?

  • Delineation of the current demographic makeup of the Medical Dosimetry workforce
  • Expression of the Medical Dosimetrist role in the clinic
  • Quantification of the work metrics of the Medical Dosimetrist
  • A working assessment of the future supply and demand for adequately trained Medical Dosimetry professionals

A presentation of the Workforce Study data and insights was given by the research project director, Michael Mills, PhD, during the AAMD Virtual 46th Annual Meeting on June 9, 2021. Access the presentation recording.
