Join us on Jan. 22, 2022 for the ACR® Medical Student Symposium organized by fellow medical students.

Take part in a one-day virtual experience, where you will hear from a diverse group of speakers on topics ranging from: diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, women and diversity, and matching into radiology. Throughout the day, you will explore the rapidly evolving field of radiology. 

Topics of Spotlight

  • The Field of Radiology and Subspecialities: Radiology is not just sitting in a dark room. Attendees will learn about subspecialties in radiology and gain insight into how imaging can assist in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and can enable continuity of care.
  • Pathway to Radiology: Medical students will hear from current radiology residents and physicians about their journey to radiology, as well as receive advice on submitting a successful application.
  • Culture of Radiology: Attendees will learn how the culture of radiology is changing and how imperative it is to encourage diversity within reading rooms.
