Filing Deadline Nears for Moorefield Fellowship

Residents and fellows face a June 1 deadline to apply for the 2017 James M. Moorefield, MD, Economics and Health Policy Fellowship.

Sponsored by the American College of Radiology (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 policies that affect the practices of diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists and medical physicists. Its economists monitor and evaluate current and proposed reimbursement and practice policies to advocate for the best interests of radiologists and their patients.

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 and affects Medicare and private payer reimbursement policies for radiology and radiation oncology procedures.

The fellowship is open to third- and fourth-year residents and fellows, though second-year residents may be considered if they become third-year residents before the selection process is complete in June.
