IAEA-EUTEMPE will be transmitting the webinar: Preparing Medical Physicists for future leadership roles
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2018 2:00 pm  Europe Summer Time (Berlin, GMT+02:00)
Lecturer: Carmel J. Caruana Ph. D., FIPEM
Professor and Head of the Medical Physics Department, University of Malta.   
In today’s highly competitive world, being a good scientist is not sufficient for a professional to prosper; good leadership, managerial and strategic planning skills have become essential. Leadership is of concern to all healthcare professions, but it is even more crucial for small professions such as Medical Physics. Preparing future leaders should be done in two ways: first by direct interaction with successful leaders who would share their experiences (role modelling) and secondly through a formal course in Medical Physics leadership. This presentation will provide examples of both. The author will present his own experiences of leadership and present a practical ‘to do’ list for successful leadership.
