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?
