Getting Radiology Residents Involved in Advocacy

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) State Government Relations department in 2022 launched a Resident Advocacy 101 program to educate radiology residents about how to become involved in advocating for patients and the profession. The program was enthusiastically received, with ACR staff and state radiological society leaders speaking to more than 150 residents about the importance of physician-led advocacy. The program was recently highlighted in ACR’s Bulletin.

The College has many resources to help members become involved in advocacy, including the new Radvocacy website and scope of practice micro-website. For more information about advocacy and the Radiology Action Network, please contact Melody Ballesteros, ACR Assistant Director, Government Relations.
