The Florida Radiological Society Resident and Fellows’ Section is for Members-in-Training of the FRS and ACR.

The Resident and Fellow’s section of the FRS was initially spearheaded by Dr. Doug Hornsby who had the foresight to realize that there were many exciting opportunities for Residents and Fellows to become involved in the FRS and ACR.    This involvement includes, but it not limited to, working with the many leaders in radiology and business throughout the state of Florida and nationally with the many opportunities offered by the ACR.

If you would like to join as a Member-in-Training of the FRS and ACR, visit the FRS Membership page.  Also be sure to become a fan of the FRSResident and Fellows’ Section on Facebook and receive up-to-date information from the officers and staff of the FRS Resident Physician Section.

Current Residency Programs:

Resident Opportunities:

  • The FRS Resident Traveling Fellowship to the ACR Annual Meeting & Chapter Leadership Conference .   The FRS will fund one resident from each program in Florida to attend the ACR Crossroads Meeting in Washington, DC each year.
  • Legislative and Governmental Relations Fellowship Program.  The FRS has developed an exciting fellowship for residents to gain exposure to the FRS’ government relations activities and the state regulatory process.  This is a one-week paid fellowship that covers the cost of the accommodations.  The fellowship coincides with the opening of the legislative session at the state capital.

Medical Student Mentorship:

The Resident and Fellow section of the Florida Radiology Society offers a mentorship program for medical students interested in radiology. Our goal is to help establish a meaningful mentee-mentor relationship which may provide support and guidance for medical students. If you are a medical student interested in participating, please email Cody.Odell.MD@flhosp.org for us to help find you a mentor.
