    Medical Physics for World Benefit is performing an international survey to investigate whether the Medical Physics community considers virtual mentoring to be of benefit to the community, especially for under-resourced contexts? Questions regarding challenges and successes in the virtual mentoring process will be addressed as a way of optimizing the virtual mentoring experience. All Medical Physicists (clinical, academic, industrial, or governmental) or Medical Physicists in training (graduate students or residents) from both high-income and lower-income countries are invited to participate. The link to the survey can be found here:
