Talk Tuesdays

About

As an initiative of the Research Development Sub-Committee, SIO annually hosts “Talk Tuesdays,” a virtual series, which includes free educational lectures designed for trainees and early-career interventional radiologists.

Over the course of six interactive discussions in June and July, IO experts discuss the basics of research and development to illustrate how to build your own research project and how to think scientifically. The overall goal is to promote IO research awareness and diversity among early career diagnostic and interventional radiologists and to build and inspire the next generation of IO researchers.

By attending the full series live or on-demand, you could be eligible for two awards:
