CIR offers a scholarship for the ELAR Program

Posted on: 2019-02-13

Scholarships are for the Latin American School of Radiology and applications can be made until February 28th!

The Brazilian College of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (CBR) as representative of the Inter-American College of Radiology (CIR) in Brazil supports this important initiative. The program which is supported by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the Guerbet laboratory offers 10 fellowships for training in different subspecialties. The scholarships will last three months and will be held in recognized academic centers between the second quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020. The scholarship will be US$ 3,000 for travel and subsistence expenses.

Applicants must be CIR’s radiologists members with dedication or special interest in the Radiology area of the scholarship they postulate. It is noteworthy that the scholarships are for trained radiologists and not for residents in the area.
Remembering that the doctor – when joining the CBR – automatically becomes associated to the CIR, having access to some advantages such as discounts on courses and other activities. In this case they can also compete for scholarships.
Those interested must send the requested documents (below) to the email until February 28th:

• Letter of recommendation from the Radiology Society of the country, evaluating the candidate’s radiologist status, suitability and proof of membership;
• Letter from the head of the service where he / she acts, indicating the suitability of the applicant;
• Letter indicating the scholarship to which you postulate and your motivations (maximum one page);
• Brief CV including date of birth, nationality, place of work, specific areas of the Radiology in which it operates, if it carries out teaching work and academic degree, if it has (at most one page);

The scholarship deadline to apply is on February 28th. The results will be announced on March 18th.
