Patient Communication Workshops
We are also dedicated to training career medical physicists and other trainees in the field on how to effectively communicate with patients. We currently host a Patient Communication for Medical Physicists (PCMP) Workshop at UC San Diego twice a year, including lectures and instruction from Dr. Derek Brown, Dr. Todd Atwood, Dr. Titania Juang, and Dr. Laura Padilla. This two-day workshop is designed to be an exciting and engaging learning experience, including didactic training, analysis of patient interactions, role playing exercises, and simulated patient interactions.
