All the Members of IRIA
Dear Esteemed Member,
Greetings from IRIA HQ!
In the Central Council Meeting of IRIA held on 22nd July, 2018, it was decided that in view of non-availability uniform teaching facility in Radiology in the country due to lack of sufficient qualified faculty, latest equipment and clinical material, there must be a skill enhancement program for all young IRIA members. Because of the turf war and intense competition from other specialities, the skill and quality of all practicing Radiologists also must be enhanced. In this context, IRIA has decided to have a nationwide Skill enhancement Fellowships Program. The period of the program can vary from a maximum of one year to few weeks. The areas can be Foetal Radiology, Foetal Intervention, Advanced MRI, Advanced CT, Colour Doppler, Body Imaging, Small Part Imaging, Musculoskeletal Radiology- Ultrasound and or MRI, Interventional Radiology procedures, Breast Radiology etc.
All institutions having sufficient facility and faculty can apply to IRIA central office for getting them as IRIA recognised institutions to conduct Skill enhancement Fellowships program. Once approved IRIA will facilitate the selection of candidates. The certificate provided will be from IRIA central office with the additional signature of the local course organiser/Faculty. The duration, number of trainees, accommodation facility and fee for the course can be fixed by the institution in consultation with IRIA. A nominal part of the fee may be paid to IRIA for facilitation of the program.
This Skill Enhancement Fellowship Program is available only to those who have done recognized post graduate degree/diploma in Radiodiagnosis and are Provisional Life/Life Members of IRIA.
