Association of University Radiologists GE Radiology Research Academic Fellowship (GERRAF) Award
Fostering scholarship in radiology research
Application deadline: January 17, 2014
Since their inauguration in 1992, AUR GERRAF fellowships have been one of the most sought-after awards in academic radiology. Already, they have helped dozens of academic radiologists through:
Strengthening the research interest of radiologist-investigators by broadening their opportunities for continuing scholarship
Fostering original clinical and health services research in technology assessment, health and economic outcome methods, and decision analysis
The GERRAF Award provides two-year fellowships of sufficient flexibility to meet current research training
programs and clinical faculty appointments.
The GERRAF Award is $70,000 (USD) for each of two years and is paid through the sponsoring institution (as specified on the application form), to be used primarily for salary support for the Fellow. Up to $10,000 of the
stipend each year may be used by the Fellow to secure assistance in executing the project. An additional $10,000
of the stipend can to be used for coursework in an MPH or other degree program approved by the GERRAF Board of Review over the two year fellowship. Otherwise, the entire amount is to be used exclusively for the fellow’s salary support. In return, the institution must make available not less than one-half of the Fellow’s time to pursue the approved research and educational program.
The total salary may be supplemented by funds from other sources to meet the current pay scale of the sponsoring
institution. The sponsoring institution is expected to develop plans for continuing the Fellow’s appointment and
research salary support beyond the award period.
The annual Fellowship term begins on July 1 and ends on June 30.
An important component of this Fellowship is the commitment of the sponsoring department and institution to make available formal educational programs, research opportunities, and in-kind support for the further development of GERRAF Fellows.
(NOTE: GERRAF Awards are given to the institutions, not the individuals. As a fellowship stipend, this award may
not be used to fund institutional overhead [indirect] costs.)
If you are interested in a radiology research career and currently hold a junior faculty appointment in an academic radiology training institution in the U.S. or Canada, you may be eligible to apply for a GERRAF Award.

The ACR/ARHP image competition showcases the finest images in rheumatology and offers an opportunity for you to contribute to one of the pre-eminent medical image collections in the world! We are looking for fascinating and unique medical images that capture the best of rheumatology.
All images submitted to the competition are peer-reviewed for inclusion to the image bank, even if they are not selected as competition winners. A submitter of a high-quality image chosen for inclusion to the image bank is acknowledged as the image contributor in the image bank details. These entries can be listed as a peer-reviewed web image submission on academic CV's and professional resumes.
The image competition is open to all—membership in the College is not required. Winning images and honorable mentions are announced at the annual meeting.
The best overall submission will win the grand prize of complimentary registration* to, and four night hotel accommodations for, the 2014 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting. The top submission in each category (still; case study and health professional) will win complementary registration to the 2014 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting. In addition, the best overall submission and category winning submissions will be published in a future issue of the Arthritis & Rheumatism journal and will be featured in the online Rheumatology Image Bank.
*Registration does not include pre-meeting courses or conferences, Meet the Professor/Expert sessions, or workshops. One guest registration to the 2014 annual meeting is also included (opening reception and exhibit hall access only).
The Rheumatology Image Bank is maintained at the highest level of quality. Therefore, previously published images and/or case studies should not be submitted.

Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging 2014 Robert E. Henkin Government Relations Fellowship
It is essential for any highly regulated profession to have leaders who have an understanding gained first-hand of the challenges that the practice of nuclear medicine faces. In America today, we produce a great number of skilled professionals. But too few of these individuals provide society with statesmanlike leadership and guidance in the public affairs arena.
The Robert E. Henkin Fellowship is designed to provide young professionals in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging direct personal exposure to government relations activities of the SNMMI as well as the state and federal legislative and regulatory process. The F ellowship is designed to provide gifted and highly motivated young nuclear and molecular imaging professionals with first- hand experience in the process of health policy development. For the purpose of this proposal, a young professional shall be defined as a resident or fellow (physician), a scientist or technologist who has completed their training within the last 10 years. Professionals who have been in the field for longer than ten years are not eligible.
Applications for the 2014 program will be accepted starting on September 1, 2013 with a closing date for submission of December 31, 2013. The Fellow will be selected at the SNMMI Mid-Winter meeting in Palm Springs, CA, with the Fellowship week to occur at a time mutually agreed upon between February 2014, and June 30, 2014. Expenses for the week will be paid and a stipend provided.
