Howard B. Fleishon, MD, MMM, FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) Board of Chancellors, contributed this post.
Since assuming my role as chair of the Board of Chancellors in May, I am continually inspired by the radiology community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. ACR members around the country have displayed a profound sense of unity and strength as we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times.
The ACR is proud to support our members as we together continue to overcome various pandemic restrictions and financial hardships. In the early days of COVID-19, we created a radiology-specific COIVD-19 resources page on acr.org where members can access the latest clinical materials, well-being tools, leadership resources, economic and regulatory updates, and more.
In recognition of the financial burden facing radiology and multispecialty practices, we’re now pleased to announce newly adjusted registration prices for several of our meetings and online education courses.
- Our 2020 Virtual Annual Conference on Quality and Safety will be offered to members at a 65% discount, with even larger discounts available for medical student and resident attendees.
- The ACR Data Science Institute® Virtual 2020 Imaging Informatics Summit will transition to a virtual meeting. Member pricing has been reduced from $399 to just $99.
- The Radiology Leadership Institute® Leadership Essentials course is now free for members. The Maximize Your Influence and Impact program and Kickstart Your Career workshop are offered at significant savings, up to 50% off.
- CPI Chest modules (login required) are now available in a free, e-book format for educational purposes only.
We are committed to equipping our members with high-quality, up-to-date resources and strengthening the radiology community as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope you’ll join us virtually for our upcoming virtual meetings and take advantage of steep savings on our educational programs and materials.
