Corporate relations at SIR works to facilitate partnerships and exchange between our community of IR practitioners and the businesses driving to develop and distribute medical technologies. With SIR and SIR Foundation, industry now has the ideal venue to get closer to users of its technologies, support community growth in everything from early career training to research on outcomes, and ensure products are developed with an eye toward optimal application and deployment.
Our tradition of partnership started over 40 years ago, when new devices enabled clinical pioneers to attempt the first true, minimally invasive, interventional techniques and inaugurate our current era of modern medicine.
As the newest independent specialty, interventional radiology continues to find its mission aligned with those innovative companies that seek to advance the edge of the field and ally with SIR as a pillar of the global medical community.
Corporate support and the ambassador program
Far-sighted industry partnerships enable SIR and SIR Foundation to create a systemic impact on the field of interventional radiology. In particular, the Corporate Ambassador Program (CAP) is SIR's marquee program for recognizing your business' engagement. Learn how your company can become one of our corporate ambassadors and how CAP works to advance the mission we all share. Also, consider becoming a SIR Foundation gala sponsor at SIR 2018.
Your company's exhibit at an SIR meeting is just the beginning. Intensive meetings, like LEARN with its advanced PAD content, Y90: The Complete Course in interventional oncology and the Fellows Spring Practicum for graduating trainees, create intimate audiences of physicians with specialized interests and practices. Meanwhile, the comprehensive and community-encompassing Annual Scientific Meeting provides energetic and meaningful engagement across the entire community of practicing and future IRs.
Work with our office to access a wide range of advertising platforms to meet specific business objectives and budgets.
Extend your reach among practicing interventional radiologists, health care and hospital administration and other key decision-makers year-round through targeted member communications like JVIR, IR Quarterly, digital IR Quarterly, SIR Today, and Guidewire. Or, design your own email blast to engage SIR members with a specific message.
Society meetings further present a multitude of opportunities to place your brand and products in front of practicing IRs.
This annual 2 ½ day course held every May in Chicago prepares IR fellows for private practice or academia with training that may not have been covered extensively during the fellowship year. There is an overt focus on peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and interventional oncology (IO).
It is also an excellent opportunity for networking among fellows, practicing interventional radiologists from both academic & private settings, and device representatives from numerous industry partners.
This meeting hosts up to 100 attendees, plus an additional 24+ faculty memebers. The course is designed for current vascular and interventional radiology fellows and also welcomes a limited number of other IRs, including 4th-year residents and early career doctors.
