Resident-in-Training Travel Scholarship

Resident and Medical Student Travel Scholarships

SIR offers Annual Scientific Meeting scholarships for IRs-in-training. SIR Medical Student Scholarships and SIR Resident-in-Training Scholarships are made possible by the general support of our corporate partners.

Both awards provide IRs-in-training with the opportunity to learn about IR at an early stage in their medical careers. Selected scholars attend the SIR Annual Scientific Meeting—an experience that includes participation in dedicated educational programming, presentations from the leaders in the field of interventional radiology and networking opportunities with IRs from across the world.


Resident-in-training Travel Scholarship  

The Resident-in-training Travel Scholarship is open to all first- and second-year radiology residents within the United States and Canada. The scholarship provides recipients with complimentary meeting registration and a $500 travel stipend.

Scholars attend the dedicated resident-in-training educational pathway, SIR plenaries and workshops and various networking events. Scheduled events include the MIT/RIT Scholars Dinner, where some of IR’s most influential leaders will highlight emerging therapies and issues in the specialty.  Scholars are welcome to attend sessions outside of the resident-in-training pathway.
