Science & Education
Recognizing that there are
instances when the educational needs of an international institution are best
served by having an individual faculty member study at a North American
institution, the RSNA Research and Education Foundation, in conjunction with
the RSNA Committee on Radiology Education (CIRE),
established the RSNA Derek Harwood-Nash International Fellowship.
criteria: Interested candidates must be promising international
radiology scholars who have completed their radiology training, are embarking
on a career in academic radiology (i.e. have held a faculty position for 3 to
10 years), and who demonstrate that their specific educational goals can be
met most appropriately by a course of study in a North American institution.
Qualified candidates must also specify how the knowledge and experience
gained from this fellowship will benefit and improve the practice of
radiology in both the home institution and the radiological community.
Proficiency in English is required.
CIRE has developed a roster of appropriate host academic centers in North
America where fellows may observe procedures and participate in
conferences relating to their areas of special interest.
travel and living arrangements must be made directly by the fellow and the
host academic center. The RSNA will provide a stipend of up to $10,000 to
cover travel and modest living expenses for a 6- to 12-week period, and
education materials. In addition, each fellow will receive a 1-year
complimentary subscription to the RSNA journals Radiology and
RadioGraphics, on return to his or her home country.
