All students attending a Florida-based Medical Physics program are encouraged to submit abstracts for the 2021 FL AAPM Spring Meeting. The top 6 submissions will be invited to give a 15-minute oral presentation and compete for prizes. The 15-minute time slot will consist of a 12-minute presentation followed by a 3-minute question and answer session. Due to the virtual nature of the meeting, all selected presentations must be pre-recorded and submitted in advance of the meeting (deadline of March 8, 2021). Presenters must be present (on-line) during the meeting for a live Q&A following your presentation.
