ACR Creates the Radiology Leadership Institute

August 16, 2011 — For the first time, the field of radiology will have its own professional development and leadership academy starting in 2012 with the opening of the American College of Radiology’s (ACR) Radiology Leadership Institute (RLI).   

The multi-level, multi-year academy will feature world-class instructors from renowned universities offering MBA and MPH degrees; a range of advanced leadership courses building to levels of proficiency and certification; and the opportunity to earn continuing medical education (CME).

“The ACR recognized the growing need for specialized leadership development in the increasingly dynamic healthcare environment,” said Cynthia S. Sherry, M.D., FACR, chair of the ACR Commission on Leadership and Practice Development and medical director of the Radiology Leadership Institute. “RLI will satisfy that need with a robust curriculum relevant and targeted to all levels of radiology experience, whether in private practice or academia, including management fundamentals for residents, fellows and practicing physicians.” 

A full curriculum of educational activities and programming will be offered, combining face-to-face learning in a variety of geographic locations, team projects, case analysis, and web-based distance learning. 

The institute’s inaugural event will take place July 12 – 15, 2012 at Northwestern University’s Evanston, Ill. campus. This one-time, invitation-only event will feature a variety of topics that will be developed into the institute’s comprehensive curriculum.   

The conference will feature collaboration of radiology leaders and professors from the prestigious Health Enterprise Management program of the Kellogg School of Management, one of the first of several university partners of RLI.
