We will start the judging for the People’s Choice award soon (which is why we’re not including any images with this post). Stay tuned!
Let’s celebrate our exciting profession and show off visually stimulating aspects of the work of a Medical Physicist.
We have just closed the submissions to first the Photography in Medical Physics (PIMP) competition. The competition is run in three categories:
P – Professionals at work
O – Other exciting aspects of Medical Physics
M – Macro: Get up close and personal with Medical Physics
Stay tuned for the results and the images!
