SIR Sections

Early Career Section


The Early Career Section is composed of Interventional Radiologists in their first 8 years of practice; however, membership is open to all individuals interested in supporting the mission and objective of the section.  The purpose of the ECS is to provide a platform in which members of SIR new to the practice of interventional radiology can develop a knowledge and resource base, network, participate in decision-making and serve as a resource to the SIR Executive Council.

In addition to the general mission and vision of the Society as set forth in the Bylaws, the objectives of this section shall be:

  1. To provide an opportunity for physicians new to the practice of Interventional Radiology to exchange ideas and learn about furthering their careers in Interventional Radiology.
  2. To promote collegiality and cooperation among the physicians who recently started to practice Interventional Radiology.
  3. To develop and present educational programs on the many facets of Interventional Radiology including:
    • understanding economic, hospital, and health care policy;
    • achieving a balanced lifestyle;
    • furthering career opportunities; and
    • maintaining career longevity and economic viability.
  4. To prepare and distribute interesting, educational, and informative content for members of the section.
  5. To serve as a resource to the Society, Executive Council, SIR and SIR Foundation committees, on issues relating to Interventional Radiology.
  6. To provide a pathway for professional leadership development within the organization.
