Our Mission

Serving Medical Physicists in New Jersey

With a membership base extending throughout the New Jersey region, we cater to approximately 150 active members. Our primary objective is to advocate for the interests of medical physicists in the New Jersey area. We endeavor to facilitate networking and collaboration opportunities while providing support and empowerment to members of the New Jersey medical physics community.

Host Annual Meetings and Outings

We organize one to two annual meetings along with occasional outings as circumstances permit. These meetings showcase distinguished speakers from the local area who share innovative research and clinically relevant topics. We award lifetime achievement awards to members of our community who have dedicated themselves to our profession. Additionally, to foster networking among medical physicists, we are in the process of arranging casual outings in the near future.

Host Mock Oral Exams

We are diligently coordinating efforts among our members to organize mock oral exams aimed at providing constructive feedback to the community. These initiatives are designed to assist junior members in preparing for board certification exams.

Encourage Junior Members

Every year during annual meetings, we host a medical physics slam competition. Medical Physics Slam is a three-minute elevator pitch competition where students and trainees can practice communicating their research to a lay audience. The winner will represent our chapter in a final competition organized by the AAPM Students and Trainees Subcommittee.

President's Note

I extend a warm greeting to each of you! My name is Chingyun Cheng, and I have the honor of serving as the President of the New Jersey Medical Physics Society for the year 2024.


Since its establishment in 1975, our organization has been dedicated to supporting the professional needs of medical physicists in the New Jersey region. We host one to two meetings annually, typically in the Spring and Fall offering valuable opportunities for members to connect, network, and remain updated on the latest advancements in our field.


As part of our continued commitment to serving our community, we have made enhancing our chapter's website a top priority this year. Additionally, we are diligently organizing mock oral exams to further support junior members in their preparation for the board certification exam.
