Science Symposium, Diversity, Mentoring & Visioneering Workshops
August 30-September 1, 2022
About the Symposium
This symposium and workshop brings scholarly-focused, early-career, diverse scientists together with visionary leaders and mentors, who are interested in shaping the future of Academic Medical Physics. The event includes a public science symposium of presentations and discussion panels, followed by task specific workshops to supports early career participants for mentoring and networking sessions, themed around the future of the field.
Participants will advance a national network of junior and senior investigators who are shaping academic Medical Physics, providing intentional support for those who have a bold, inclusive vision of the future inventions and discoveries in this field. Applicants to participate will be chosen and are funded to attend and leave with 1) individual introduction to leadership in the science of medical physics, 2) a broader self-determined mentor network, 3) increased potential to find and shape their own academic agenda. Successes of participants will be highlighted and the discussions are intended to lead to a white paper, with ongoing evolution for future of advancing the science of the field.
Early career applicants may apply for acceptance and funding to participate, which will support travel, accommodation and food. Eligibility requirement is for early investigators – being from (i) last year of doctoral work, (ii) post doctoral trainee, (iii) research scientist or assistant professors within the first 3 years of independence. Applications must be submitted by June 18, 2022 to be guaranteed consideration. Applications submitted after that date will be evaluated on a rolling basis.
All participants will be interacting with the invited speakers, extended faculty, researchers and students of the University of Wisconsin Department of Medical Physics, as well as the Board of Visitors of Medical Physics.
