Do You Have Any New Radiologists in Your Practice?

Maintaining a current membership roster provides a challenge to the AAR given our mobile society. This is particularly difficult when residents, medical physicists and practicing radiologists move into new practices sometimes from other states. Help us to contact these vital members!

If a radiologist or medical physicist has joined your practice, hospital, or community in the past year or two, let us know by sending us their name, phone, address, and practice location. If the individual is not a member of the AAR or ACR, encourage them to join—the future of our profession depends upon it. The AAR and ACR offer significantly reduced membership dues for the first several years following completion of residency and fellowship training, as well as for physicists.

The members of the AAR and ACR greatly appreciate your consideration of our membership appeal.
