Eyler Fellowship


The William R. Eyler Editorial Fellowship provides an opportunity for mid-career radiologists to further their experience in radiologic journalism by working with RSNA journal editors and publications staff.

As an Eyler fellow, you’ll learn about manuscript preparation and editing, peer review, journal production, printing and digital publishing. At the end of the fellowship, you'll complete a program evaluation and prepare a follow-up report on your experiences during and after the fellowship.

The fellowship lasts for approximately one month. During this time, the Eyler fellow will:

  • Travel to Madison, Wisconsin, to work with the editor of Radiology
  • Visit Phoenix to work with the editor of RadioGraphics
  • Have a virtual visit with the editors of the RSNA subspecialty journals
  • Tour the RSNA publications department in Oak Brook, Illinois, and learn about the production process

  • Be an RSNA member
  • Have accomplished at least three years of attending-level work at an academic institution
