The journey of a radiologist: Virtual Get-Together of ESOR Scholars/Fellows and Tutors


Tuesday, May, 11, 16:00-17:45 (CEST)


The European School of Radiology (ESOR) was proud to host this virtual networking event which was moderated and chaired by Prof. Valérie Vilgrain (ESOR Scientific/ Educational Director). Words of welcome were given by the Bracco Imaging CEO, Dr. Fulvio Renoldi Bracco, as Bracco has a long-standing cooperation with ESOR in making these training programmes possible.

In the first part, former ESOR scholars and fellows reported on how the completion of an ESOR training programme has contributed to their professional careers. In the second part, three renowned tutors contributed to the programme by highlighting their experience and giving excellent advice on how application documents should be prepared best.

This event was aimed at young radiologists from around the world as well as training centers interested in hosting future ESOR training programmes. Many participants actively engaged with the speakers in the live chat forum.
