Deadline for SIIM's Radiology Resident Scholarship Coming Up

February 16, 2009 - The deadline for submitting the application for a scholarship program for radiology residents interested in imaging informatics sponsored by the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) is March 2, 2009.
For the fourth year, SIIM offers this scholarship to all trainees in North America who intend to pursue a career in radiology or imaging sciences.
“The SIIM resident scholarship program enjoyed another successful year in 2008. Our two winners had a variety of useful educational experiences at the meeting. The essays in 2008 addressed the educational impact of imaging informatics of trainees. This year, we are broadening the essays to see what software trainees find valuable outside the PACS. We are looking forward to some exceptional essays, just like those we have had the pleasure of reading in past years,” said Barton F. Branstetter IV, M.D., chair of the SIIM Resident & Fellow Education & Training Subcommittee.
Travel expenses and meeting registration for the SIIM 2009 Annual Meeting, as well as a one-year SIIM membership, are included for the recipients. The SIIM Annual Meeting takes place in Charlotte, NC, June 4 - 7, 2009.
Applicants are asked to submit a 500-750 word essay on the following topic: "Besides PACS, what one piece of software most improves workflow efficiency for radiologists?" The winning essays will be published in the Journal of Digital Imaging or SIIM News.
Topics of interest to SIIM members include PACS (monitors, networking, and storage), digital teaching files, speech recognition, computer-aided interpretation, reading room workflow and ergonomics, and communication technologies. "Residents who already have an interest in computers will find SIIM to be a welcoming group of like-minded radiologists," said Branstetter.
