RSNA/ASNR/ SIRF Comparative Effectiveness Research Training
Co-sponsored by RSNA, the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR), and the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation (SIRF), this hands-on training program in comparative effectiveness research (CER) will introduce you to the methodology and tools for performing CER. The training is delivered over the course of a year in a combination of online modules, web-based sessions and a 1½-day, in-person workshop.
The goal of the CERT program is for each participant to develop a proposal for a grant application that could be submitted for the ASNR CER award, SIRF CER award, RSNA Scholar award, GERRAF program or other external funding.
- Implement the principles of CER design as they apply to imaging studies to measure patient outcomes.
- Describe the large database available for population health and or predictive analytics.
- Incorporate Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning technology to CER in imaging studies.
- Comprehend the regulatory and implementation issues associated with imaging related CER.
- Develop a grant proposal for imaging related CER.

The 1½-day, in-person session is held at RSNA headquarters, 820 Jorie Blvd. Suite 200, Oak Brook, Illinois. Over the course of the year, there will also be web-based lectures and web-based small group grant proposal review discussions.
The primary consideration of RSNA is the health and safety of all who are a part of our community. We understand the long-term impact COVID-19 has had on travel and in-person meetings, but we are hopeful that we will be able to offer this valuable educational opportunity as an in-person event. We will continue to monitor the situation and any change of plans will be communicated.
The application deadline for 2021-22 has passed. Applications for next year’s workshop will be available by May 2022.
