ARRS Clinician Educator Development Program

Each year 30 junior faculty members are selected to receive a $1,500 grant to attend a one-day workshop held at the ARRS Annual Meeting to gain proficiency in teaching skills and designing educational activities.

2021 Program

A 2021 program will not be offered due to COVID-19 guidelines. Information for the 2022 program will be available in 2021.

About the Program

The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) Clinician Educator Development Program is designed to be a highly interactive, focused day of learning new teaching skills and tools, and improving those you already have. Over half the program is hands-on learning—be taught in the way that we want you to teach! This program is also an excellent opportunity to meet with other enthusiastic Clinician Educators, and there will be opportunities to network further with the faculty and attendees.

Attendees will be asked to pre-submit some material that will be used during the session, and may be asked to download various apps/software and review short videos prior to the start of the program. Bringing a laptop is a requirement for this course. See this past schedule for more session information.

The Clinician Educator Development Program is funded by The Roentgen Fund® of the ARRS.
