The AAMD has launched a Salary Survey to collect 2021 medical dosimetry salary data.
We invite AAMD members to participate in the 2021 AAMD Salary Survey (for compensation and benefits earned in calendar year 2021). Many medical dosimetrists rely on this data to compare their compensation to national or regional norms. We need your participation to ensure our data will be accurate.
All survey responses are confidential. A detailed summary report based on the survey responses, including the data about compensation, will be available on the AAMD website for members only later this fall.
Members should have received a link to the survey via email on Thursday, August 11.
If you did not receive the survey email which contains a unique four-digit Survey ID Number, please contact email@example.com.
Please complete the survey by September 16.
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.
A presentation of the survey results was given by Lori Simmons, MS, CMD, during the 2021 Educators' Workshop in July 2021. Access the presentation recording.
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?
