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.
