• Introduction to Research for International Young Academics

  • The focus of this program is to encourage young radiologists from countries outside North America to pursue careers in academic radiology. The program consists of a special seminar that is held during the RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting.

    The Committee on Radiology Education recommends fifteen international young academics for consideration by the RSNA Board, each year. Complimentary registration, shared hotel accommodation for the duration of the program, and a stipend to help defray travel expenses are awarded to successful candidates.

    Eligible candidates are residents and fellows currently in radiology training programs, or radiologists not more than two years out of training, who are beginning or considering an academic career. Nominations must be made by the candidate's department chairperson or training director. Fluency in English is required.
