ACR Offers Scholarships to Help Residents and Fellows Attend Radiology Leadership Institute
Applications are now open for radiology residents and fellows who wish to attend the ACR Radiology Leadership Institute (RLI) Annual Event that will be held from July 25–28 at the Kellogg School of Management on Northwestern University’s Evanston, Ill, campus. The scholarships are funded by the ACR Foundation, which earlier this month kicked off its "Leading Radiology Into the Future" campaign with a phase 1 goal of raising $5 million to support the RLI with educational program development and scholarships. (Read more here.) Up to five scholarships may be awarded this year and the scholarship money will be provided directly to the resident’s or fellow’s educational program to pay full registration fees and travel costs associated with attending the 2013 RLI Annual Event. “The mission of the RLI is to prepare leaders who will shape the future of radiology, ensure quality, elevate service and deliver extraordinary patient care. We realize that, for many residents and fellows, funding is at a premium. The ACR wants to help them gain access to this critical content, navigate the transition from volume to value-based care, advance their careers, and become better providers and better leaders,” said Cynthia S. Sherry, MD, FACR, medical director of the RLI and chair of the ACR Commission on Leadership and Practice Development, in the press release. Completed scholarship applications, which include brief essays and a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s program director, must be received by June 25, 2013.
