10 Residents Win Scholarships to Radiology Leadership Institute
Among the attendees of the second Radiology Leadership Institute event later this month will be ten radiology residents whose way will be paid by the ACR Foundation. The scholarship was created as part of an ongoing effort by the ACR to establish a new generation of leaders for the field, capable of advocating for the value of advanced imaging and the role of radiology in an advanced health care delivery system. This is the first year scholarships were awarded. The inaugural recipients are:
  • Zachary Ballenger, M.D., Indiana University School of Medicine
  • McKinley Glover IV, M.D., MHS, Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Matthew Harper, M.D., Geisinger Health System
  • H. Benjamin Harvey, M.D., JD, Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Stephen James Hunt, M.D., Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania
  • Paul Lewis, M.D., M.S., Rush University Medical Center
  • Lisa Mabry, M.D., University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Robert A. Mackey, M.D., MBA, Georgia Regents University
  • Andrew Moriarity, M.D., Henry Ford Hospital
  • Steven Temkin, M.D., Hartford Hospital
This year, the Radiology Leadership Institute annual event is being held from July 25–28, 2013, at the Kellogg School of Management on Northwestern University’s Evanston, Ill., campus. Registration is being taken until July 19. Last year the event sold out. This year’s conference is being highlighted by an address from former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.). According to the ACR, the four-day program can help radiology professionals of all career stages to:
  • Identify key operational metrics and processes for organizational effectiveness and utilize tools to embed the “value” concept into practice management
  • Explore effective negotiation techniques and learn strategies to maximize the potential for a deal
  • Build and manage more effective teams to improve quality and profitability of care
  • Manage conflict, deal with uncertainty, create opportunities for improvement and understand how team dynamics will likely shape the role of radiology in new payment systems
  • The Scholarship Program is funded by the ACR Foundation RLI Fund through a fundraising effort launched earlier this year. Watch the ACR video from last year's event:
