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 FRS Resident and Fellows’ Section on Facebook and receive up-to-date information from the officers and staff of the FRS Resident Physician Section.
