The Washington State Radiological Society and the UW Women in Radiology group are proud to jointly host an afternoon of mentorship and networking for women radiologists, radiation oncologists and medical physicists. Radiology residents, fellows, and attending physicians are all welcome to attend.

Join us for a casual afternoon with women in radiology – including a mentoring panel and round table discussions — with a diverse array of women professionals. We will have represenatives from various practice settings, such as private practice, academia, and teleradiology.

Highly requested topics such as job hunting, offer negotiations, career advancement, work life balance, and burnout will be covered. There will also be plenty of time to get your additional questions answered and to connect with fantastic mentors and mentees.  There is no charge to attend but space is limited, so register now!

“Bones, Body and Brain MRI: Stanford Imaging Update 2018”

A Continuing Medical Education Conference Presented by the Department of Radiology, Stanford University School of Medicine
May 21 – 25, 2018 Marriott Wailea Beach Resort – Maui, Hawaii

This CME conference is designed to address the educational needs of radiologists and MRI technologists by improving their technical and interpretive skills to best serve patients who present with musculoskeletal, abdominal/pelvic, and neurological disorders. Through a comprehensive curriculum, participants will apply new knowledge, gain insights, and develop critical thinking skills in clinical practice. The conference content will enable them to gain new insights into how to optimize imaging and interpret imaging studies for a particular anatomic region, to promote a systematic analysis of all aspects of an imaging study, and to appraise and address controversial topics. Through lectures, question-and-answer sessions, and engaging panel discussions and debates, participants will be better able to optimize image interpretation, discuss controversial topics, and enhance interactions with clinician colleagues. For more information, please visit this website.
