National Radiology Peer Learning Summit

January 10, 2020, 8am – Noon
Attend via live stream* 
This free, four-hour virtual summit sponsored by the ACR will convene invited experts and thought leaders to define the concept and parameters of peer learning. The goal is to develop a white paper to document the current state of programs and to recommend a strategy for implementing effective peer-learning practices for all radiologists in the U.S.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • The practical differences that exist between small and large practices as well as academic and private practices
  • Direction from the Joint Commission and ACR Accreditation on expectations and recommendations
  • The differences between peer learning and peer review
  • Challenges implementing peer learning systems
  • How peer learning fits within regulatory needs

*If you are attending in person, the summit will be held from 8:00am–2:15 pm at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA 02115. Breakout sessions are only available for in-person attendees.
