Our Mission

The Association of Program Directors in Radiology is an organization of residency and fellowship program directors and coordinators with the common goal of optimizing the educational experience for our trainees. Through an annual meeting, periodic communications, and material on its website, APDR enhances the professional capabilities of its members, provides them with the tools necessary to flourish in a rapidly changing healthcare environment and to be in compliance with regulatory requirements of the Residency Review Committee and the American Board of Radiology, and facilitates effective communication with those organizations and others with common interests.

November 8 Marks Sixth Annual International Day of Radiology

APDR joins more than 140 radiology-related professional societies taking part in the sixth annual International Day of Radiology (IDoR) on Wednesday, November 8. The theme of this year’s IDoR is emergency radiology and the essential role that radiologists play in the emergency room, increasing the quality of care and treatment of patients.

Please take advantage of an online “communications toolkit” at RSNA.org/IDoR2017 to help spread the word about IDoR. Feel free to share the toolkit items by posting links to them on your own website. For additional information, visit www.internationaldayofradiology.com.
