Exchange Programmes for Fellowships
The development of subspecialty fellowships in radiology through proper and structured training is one of the major aims of ESR and ESOR. ESOR, in partnership with the European subspecialty societies, has organised Exchange Programmes for Fellowships, which are aimed at rounding off educational requirements for subspecialty fellowships. The programmes are structured and mentored, and they are offered throughout a number of major European volunteer reference centres.
Those eligible are radiologists within the first three years after certification. Successful applicants enter three months of intense subspecialisation training and are provided with a grant from the ESR and the relevant subspecialty society.
At present these programmes are realised with the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR), the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI), the European Society of Cardiac Imaging (ESCR), the European Society of Head and Neck Radiology (ESHNR), the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR), the European Society of Neuroradiology, Diagnostic and Interventional (ESNR), the European Society of Paediatric Radiology (ESPR), and the European Society of Thoracic Imaging (ESTI).
Training CentresESOR would like to thank all interested institutions/departments for their willingness to participate as a reference training centre.
