We raise awareness about our profession and represent the interest of certified medical physicist in the Upstate New York Area. Our region excludes new york city and it’s metro areas.

We host two annual meeting a year that feature distinguished speakers and a young investigator competition. Annually we award a lifetime achievement award to a member of our community who has dedicated themselves to our profession.
Encourage Young Investigators
At our annual meeting we host young investigator competitions that educate our community and encourage aspiring physicist.
On August 7th 1975, Bowen Keller, Frederick Faw and Charles Chamberlain started the Upstate New York chapter to support the needs of medical physicist at a local level. Since then our chapter has grown and boast a membership count in excess of 200. I want to take a moment to extend a warm welcome to all of our members. For our current members, I want to let you know that we are constantly striving to find new ways to upgrade the services and resources we provide. This year we have embarked on an ambitious plan to host a workshop and update our website. We would love to hear your ideas and suggestion.
Our chapter territory currently includes membership in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany and their vicinity (essentially all of the New York State except for Metropolitan New York City). The chapter dues are $20.00 annually for full members, and the fee is waived for the first year of membership for all of our new members. For junior members, e.g. students, there is no membership fee, but we do require that two full members sponsor the junior member using the enclosed form.
In closing, we hope you will consider attending our meeting or volunteering.
