From the Chairman
Dear Imaging Institute Alumni and Staff,
Welcome to our webpage, and we appreciate the opportunity to connect with you.
We are proud to announce that our Radiology Residency class of 2013 achieved a 100-percent pass rate on the oral ABR exams — our second class in a row to do so.
To make our training program even stronger and to encourage alumni support, we are creating a new Radiology Alumni Education Award for Excellence. Recognizing outstanding academic and clinical performance of a third-year resident, this award would first be presented at the 2014 Senior Residents’ Graduation Dinner. The award would enable the recipient to go to an attendance-only national radiology meeting/conference of his or her choice.
We are launching an annual fundraising campaign to support the cost of one resident (or more, if funding allows) to attend a national meeting, now about $3,000 a person. Would you consider a gift to the Radiology Alumni Education Award Fund to help enrich the training of the residents who are following in your footsteps?
Imaging Institute staff and alumni who would like to contribute to the Radiology Alumni Education Award Fund can make a tax-deductible donation online.
We welcome your support at any level.
The Radiology Alumni Education Award and other news, including the RSNA recognizing former Cleveland Clinic pediatric radiologist Marilyn Goske, MD, as 2012 Outstanding Educator, are featured in the Q1_Q2 2013 issue of Radiology Alumni Connection. Also in this issue are abstracts of the Annual State of the Clinic address presented by our CEO/President Toby Cosgrove, MD, and the Top 10 Medical Innovations for the coming year. These innovations will be highlighted at Cleveland Clinic’s 11th Annual Medical Innovation Summit at Cleveland Medical Mart & Convention Center, Oct. 14 – 16.
