AUR/APDR Radiology Career Advancement Lectureship Program (RCALP)

The AUR and APDR are pleased to announce the AUR/APDR Radiology Career Advancement Lectureship Program (RCALP).

What is RCALP?

Participants give an invited lectureship at one of over 30 participating institutions in the U.S and receive feedback on teaching from a peer. All presentations will be given virtually, and there is no monetary remuneration or honorarium.

Who is Eligible?

The program is open only to AUR and APDR members who are either:

  • early-career faculty (within five years of completion of training), or
  • mid-career faculty (> 5 years after training and academic rank no more than Associate Professor) 

Participating as a Visiting Lecturer

Participation in this program is an excellent opportunity to advance academic career goals, especially as an early or mid-career faculty member. It also provides an opportunity to further expand your network. The topics requested from the participating institutions are broad, including all areas of clinical radiology as well as a range of non-clinical topics, such as wellness, public health, healthcare disparities, hospital management, and quality and safety.

Application Process - Visiting Lecturer

Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 - 2023 RCALP program! We invite active members of the AUR and APDR to apply. The deadline for receipt of applications is May 6, 2022 at noon ET. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Selected faculty will be announced in mid-June 2022. Apply for the program here.

Host Institutions

Interested in supporting the program by hosting an RCALP participant? Participating institutions would:

  • Host an early-career or mid-career faculty from another institution* each academic year. As a host, you would not be responsible for covering any costs or stipends as the lectures will be presented using a virtual platform. This program intends to offer an invited lectureship opportunity for early-career and mid-career faculty to advance their career and promote networking across institutions. Guest lecturers will be AUR members.
  • Work with the invited lecturer to find a date and time to work with both parties’ schedules. The program recommends a lecture time of at least 45-60 minutes. The intended audience could be residents, faculty, or both.
  • Host the virtual lecture and provide the AUR/APDR with a recording so that it can be posted on the respective websites.
  • Complete a short electronic survey of no more than 5-10 minutes about your experience in the program, which will provide us with feedback to improve the program moving forward. 

If you are interested in participating, please fill out the interest form here. All interest forms must be received by Friday, May 6.
