IR Fellows 2016

IRSA is considering the concept of forming an IRSA school of Interventional Radiology as well as recognising IRSA accredited IR fellowships and would like to know which centres currently take fellows. IRSA would like to request members to forward the contact details (such as an email address) of their future fellows for 2016. In addition there is a high likelihood of a short IR course available for the 2016 fellows supported by an industry partner and we would like to make sure all fellows for 2016 have an opportunity to be invited. 

Please forward details to hilary.baldwin@ranzcr.edu.au by Monday 16th November.

Many thanks for your assistance 

Dr Gerard Goh  Chief Examiner EBIR Aus/NZ
