Get a Head Start on Your Career (April 28, 2021)

The radiology landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade and the pace of change will not subside any time soon.

This means that your potential future employers are now seeking candidates with more comprehensive skill sets. With this course, RLI will get you prepared and armed to find the right job and embark on your career journey with enthusiasm and confidence.

Designed for residents and fellows, this virtual RLI event will provide you with a strong foundation of knowledge, skills and tips on how to most effectively enter the radiology workforce in a way that positions you for the greatest opportunity for success.
