The focus of this program is to encourage young radiologists from countries outside the United States and Canada to pursue careers in academic radiology. The program consists of a special four-day seminar that is held during the RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Program topics may include: designing and planning clinical research, research ethics, critical evaluation of literature, preparing a manuscript and statistics.
Eligible candidates are residents and fellows currently in radiology training programs, or radiologists not more than two years out of training, who are beginning or considering an academic career. Nominations must be made by the candidate's department chair or training director. A department chair or training director may only nominate one candidate per year. Fluency in English is required.
The Committee on Radiology Education recommends fifteen international young academics for consideration by the RSNA Board, each year. Complimentary registration, shared hotel accommodation for the duration of the program, and a stipend to help defray travel expenses are awarded to successful candidates.
