IDEA Scholar

As leaders in Medicine and Radiology we have the privilege to make a significant and long-lasting impact in the lives of our patients, teaching programs and departments for years to come. It is in that spirit we offer this unique and worthwhile educational opportunity to you, our radiology colleagues and members of the AUR.

What is the IDEA Scholars Program?

In response to the needs of our members, recognizing the variability in the accessibility and depth of training in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at every institution, the AUR has organized the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Allyship (IDEA) Scholars program to offer you an opportunity to build the skills and confidence to serve as an educator and leader in your practice.

The IDEA Scholars program will train you both to increase your knowledge and awareness of these issues and how you can teach these ideas and principles to others. The program will be structured with a total of 5 full group workshops supplemented with small group breakout sessions in between.

All workshops will be held from 3:00-6:00 PM (ET); 2:00-5:00 PM (CT); 12:00-3:00 PM (PT) on the date indicated. Small group breakouts will be scheduled between workshops per the availability of the group. 

Who is Eligible?

The program is open to all AUR members.
