Applicant criteria

This workshop is for residents in the second year of their residencies (PGY3) in a program based in the United States or Canada. We accept residents within radiology, radiation oncology and nuclear medicine specialties. Candidates must agree to attend all functions associated with the program and participate in a longitudinal study aimed to determine the program’s success.

 

Dates and locations

November 28 - December 2, 2021 in Chicago, IL OR at the ARRS annual meeting held May 1-6, 2022 in New Orleans, LA.

RSNA will assign selected candidates to attend either program. The nomination form allows you to indicate preferred dates. We will do our best to honor a preference, but this is not guaranteed.

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. If an in-person meeting is not held, ITAR course directors will work to offer a modified web-based program.
