Virtual Radiologic (vRad), a technology-enabled national radiology practice based in Eden Prairie, Minn, and the Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) will team up to provide RBMA members with additional educational opportunities, including six $1,500 scholarships to RBMA members who have not yet attended an RBMA conference.
Along with funding the scholarships, vRad will develop several white papers educating RBMA members on best practices in topic areas such as quality assurance procedures, radiology technology and workflow, and billing.
“The partnership is a classic 'win-win' for both organizations,” says Michael Mabry, executive director of RBMA. “The white papers will showcase vRad’s expertise and provide a valuable resource for RBMA members. vRad’s generous support of scholarships makes available the content and learning to members who might not have had the opportunity to attend an RBMA conference.”
The scholarships will cover registration fees and other costs qualified applicants incur for attending the meeting. The first scholarships will be awarded for attendance at the 2011 Fall Educational Conference that will be held from October 16 to 19 in Las Vegas.
