The Radiological Society of New Jersey
We are the New Jersey chapter of the American College of Radiology Resident and Fellow Section (ACR-RFS). We represent radiology residents and fellows at the bimonthly RSNJ Executive Board meetings. We are also sponsored by the RSNJ to attend the ACR Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. Members of the RFS meet to discuss issues that affect us as members in-training. Residents join other ACR members from their states and meet with members of Congress on Capitol Hill to discuss the specific legislative issues that affect us.
The ACR-RFS program at the ACR Annual Meeting offers a venue to discuss additional topics important to developing physicians with input from expert radiologists. Current issues include consolidation in radiology, sustainability in healthcare, malpractice, artificial intelligence and informatics, and advocacy.

We strive to coordinate our efforts with those of the American College of Radiology (ACR). As residents and fellows, we enjoy complimentary membership in the College and we are fortunate that the College has recognized the unique status of members who are in training as long-term stakeholders in the future of radiology. To that end, the ACR has set up the Residents and Fellows Section (RFS) to give us a voice and to serve as a platform for future membership in the college.
