AUR has created the Alliance of Leaders in Academic Affairs in Radiology (ALAAR) a new Special Interest Group (SIG) for radiology departmental leaders, such as Vice Chairs or Directors of Faculty Development and Academic Affairs. The mission of ALAAR is to support leaders in academic affairs positions, facilitate the sharing of ideas and best practices, and lay the foundation to establish robust metrics and benchmarks for what constitutes career success for academic clinical radiology faculty across a variety of institutions.

The first meeting of the SIG will be in early 2021.
