If you are a radiology or radiation oncology resident with a passion for quality improvement, this fellowship is for you.
The E. Stephen Amis, Jr., MD, Fellowship in Quality and Safety provides an opportunity for up to three residents in diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, integrated interventional and diagnostic, and radiation oncology to discover insights and gain experience with the ACR Department of Quality and Safety. You will learn about the work that ACR does to promote and support Quality and Safety. You will have an opportunity to meet leaders in the profession and launch your own leadership journey in your careers. See below for the list of previous fellows.
The fellowship is split into two sessions. First, fellows will attend virtual session to meet with various ACR staff for one week in the fall while ACR practice parameters are drafted. They will return for approximately one week in late spring to attend the annual meeting, participate in the debate and approval of practice parameters, and meet with key staff and leaders. You will have an opportunity to connect with ACR staff across the department and College and work closely with members especially during the Annual Meeting.
Fellowship recipients are required to write a paper on a specific ACR activity for submission to an acceptable medical journal or complete a project in an area of ACR Q&S.
ACR reimburses travel and living expenses incurred during both periods of the fellowship and provides a $500 stipend. Half the stipend is paid with expenses for the first week and the remaining half upon publication of an article. International candidates (with the exception of Canadian members) are not eligible at this time.
Applications must be postmarked or submitted no later than May 31.
