Fellows Spring Practicum - Exhibitors

Fellows Spring Practicum 

Opportunities for exhibitors

June 4-6, 2020

Chicago, Ill.


Celebrated by IR program directors and IRs-in-training nationwide, this annual, 2-½ day course prepares training interventional radiologists to enter private practice or academia with material that critically augments formal training paths. Leading interventional radiologists, representing different practice models, deliver stellar programming on peripheral arterial disease (PAD), interventional oncology (IO), venous disease, the business of IR, and other topics pertinent to creating successful careers as IRs.

Attended by at least one fellow from nearly every training program in the country, the Fellows Spring Practicum serves as an excellent touchpoint for fellows, program directors and industry to address a wide range of educational, professional development and business matters. Designed for current vascular and interventional radiology fellows, a limited number of senior IR residents (PGY-5 and PGY-6) and early career IRs will also be welcomed.

Secure your company's participation in SIR's Fellows Spring Practicum and reach this receptive audience of current and future decision-makers.
