In 2012, the Foundation of the American Society of Neuroradiology (Foundation), American College of Radiology (ACR), and American Association for Women Radiologists (AAWR) established an award to provide leadership opportunities for women in neuroradiology and/or radiology overall. Since neuroradiologists must be leaders in the field, this award is for mid-career women with demonstrated experience and promise for leadership in neuroradiology and/or radiology overall. The objectives are to provide the award recipient with additional skills and insights to enhance opportunities for advancement.
The award recipient will receive funding to cover tuition and transportation costs to attend the ACR Radiology Leadership Institute Summit in conjunction with Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, to be held at the Babson Executive Conference Center, in the fall. All other expenditures will be at the expense of the award recipient.
Eligible applicants must have a MD degree or DO degree, plus subspecialty certification in neuroradiology, or its equivalent for international candidates. Applicants must have demonstrated experience and promise for leadership in neuroradiology/radiology, and must be a member of ASNR, ACR, and AAWR prior to January 1, 2017. Strong consideration will be given to applicants from practices and institutions that show a commitment to the applicant’s career development.
