RSNA Partners with SPR to Plan Future JPR Meetings

RSNA and the Radiological and Diagnostic Imaging Society of São Paulo (SPR) have agreed to continue their partnership for the joint planning of Jornada Paulista de Radiologia (JPR) in 2020, 2022 and 2024.

JPR is the leading medical imaging meeting in Latin America, attracting more than 20,000 attendees.

For the upcoming JPR meetings, SPR and RSNA will work together to plan the meeting structure and program content, develop plenary sessions and identify speakers. RSNA will also assist in developing materials and courses that are not typically offered at JPR.

“We are delighted to continue the collaboration with the SPR,” said RSNA President Richard L. Ehman, M.D. “Through this partnership, we have been able to foster the exchange of ideas and to develop outstanding programs that further the mission of both organizations to serve their members.”

Visiting Professors Travel to Indonesia

This month, three radiologists will bring their medical expertise to Indonesia as part of RSNA’s International Visiting Professor Program. The program fosters international relations among radiology societies to assist with medical education in developing and newly developed nations.

Robert M. Steiner, M.D., from the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pa., Maheen Rajput, M.D., from University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa, and Athanasios D. Gouliamos, M.D., Ph.D., from National and Kapodistrian University of Athens Medical School in Athens, Greece, will travel to Indonesia at the end of April and spend approximately two weeks giving presentations, teaching intensive seminars to radiology residents, and meeting with local radiologists.

“Teaching is an important mission for me, and I see this as a wonderful opportunity to teach residents and peers in other countries what I have learned thus far in my career,” Dr. Rajput said. “Just as important is to learn from my international colleagues what motivates them every day in their chosen career and how it impacts patients and global healthcare.”
