I subscribe to a weekly newsletter from Physics World about medical physics. This newsletter and its associated website ( replace what used to be Like medicalphysicsweb, the newsletter is edited by Tami Freeman, which means the quality remains high. It’s one of the best ways to learn what’s new in medical physics.

On the website you find videos, podcasts, research updates, webinars, interviews, career advice, and job ads related to medical physics. You may find it almost as useful as! Seriously, it has more and better content than this blog, but I suspect it has more resources behind it. In any event, both cost you the same: nothing. Sign up for an account at Physics World, then subscribe to the medical physics weekly newsletter. You won’t regret it.
