ACR Continues to Welcome Moorefield Fellowship Applications

The American College of Radiology (ACR) encourages qualified third- and four-year residents to act now to apply for the prestigious 2019-2020 James M. Moorefield, MD, Economics and Health Policy Fellowship.

The Moorefield Fellowship has been a starting point for many young radiologists who aspire to serve as leaders affecting the numerous economic issues and objectives the ACR advocates and pursues.

Sponsored by the ACR Economics and Health Policy Department, the Moorefield Fellowship program will expose its recipient to economic activities undertaken by the College. The department is responsible for all ACR efforts involving reimbursement and health policy issues affecting diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists and medical physicists.

During the two-week program at ACR headquarters in Reston, VA, the successful applicant will learn how the ACR develops new CPT billing codes, establishes monetary values for new and existing procedures, affects national and local Medicare coverage, and advocates for fair third-party payer and managed care payment policies for radiology and radiation oncology procedures.

Though specifically open for third- and fourth-year residents and fellows, second-year residents may be considered if they become third-year residents before the selection process is complete in June 2019.

Submit the application form no later than June 1. For more information, contact the ACR’s Rynzelle Spraggs at rspraggs@acr.org or 800-227-5463, ext. 4587.
