American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM)
Regional Needs Assessment
(To be completed by Medical Physicists)

The goal of the International Council (IC) of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) is to identify and develop strategies for advancing the practice of medical physics globally, address disparities in healthcare and develop mitigation strategies in collaboration with other global stakeholders that include international medical physics organizations and non-profit organizations. To maximize the impact of the IC’s work there is an urgent need to conduct a rigorous up-to-date needs assessment, and generate data that will serve as a reference for collaborating with institutions and partners in different world regions to address these needs. The AAPM Global Needs Assessment Committee and key stakeholders in different regions across the world therefore appreciate your help in responding to this survey to better establish areas of need and a baseline for high impact global health collaborations and action.
