RFS President’s Message

July 1, 2019

Welcome to the Massachusetts Radiological Society Resident and Fellow Section!

The mission of Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) of Massachusetts Radiological Society (MRS) is to represent the radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and medical physics trainees and to establish a strong statewide platform to work on any issues that affect the trainees and the patients we serve.

The MRS-RFS executive committee serves the residents and fellows throughout the year and provides resources and information related to education, clinical practice, leadership, advocacy, quality, and economics. The team makes every effort to make sure that the trainees’ voice is heard in local and national level and advocates for the future of our specialties and quality of patient care.

As a member-in-training in a radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine or medical physics program in Massachusetts, you are automatically a member of the ACR and MRS-RFS. We encourage you to get involved at the state level by serving as the liaison of your program, attending various MRS events throughout the year, and volunteering to serve as the RFS executive committee member. As an active member of RFS, you are encouraged to attend the Massachusetts Radiological Society Annual Meeting in Waltham, MA and the American College of Radiology Conference in Washington D.C. and follow the inspiring leaders of our filed.

Your MRS-RFS team is looking forward to seeing you at multiple events this year including the RFS Summer Social, Call Prep Session, Career Fair, Speed Mentoring and Networking events. We are always looking for the best ways to better advocate for our trainees and invite you to inform us about the issues that are important to you. Please follow us on Twitter @MRSRFS and contact us at massradrfs@gmail.com with any questions or suggestions.
