ESR: World’s Biggest Radiological Society Just Got Bigger

share Share
The number of European Society of Radiology members has just passed the 60,000 mark, making it by far the largest community of radiologists in the world.

In 2007, the ESR introduced low-cost membership fees to ensure that it was accessible to younger radiologists and those from less affluent regions. At €10 for full or trainee membership, plus free corresponding membership, the ESR has become popular with radiologists and scientists around the world, as it provides an affordable means for them to become part of a major international professional organisation and benefit from a wide range of membership services.

On top of that, the ESR offers its members special registration fees for its annual meeting, the European Congress of Radiology, which attracts more than 20,000 attendees each year. ESR members can pay as little as €250 to register for the meeting, while students can register for just €40 and the ESR’s Invest in the Youth programme offers 300 trainee radiologists free registration, as well as accommodation and public transport during the congress. This makes both the ESR membership, along with its annual meeting, significantly more accessible than other major radiological societies.

Today, medical professionals and trainees around the world can benefit from the ESR’s membership services, including free access to the Society’s peer-reviewed scientific journal European Radiology and its monthly newsletter, as well as exclusive access to the European School of Radiology and the European Diploma in Radiology, no matter how much they might earn. And looking to the future, the ESR expects its membership numbers to grow even further, particularly among young trainees, as it continues to enhance its membership services while maintaining low-cost membership and congress registration fees.

The European Society of Radiology is an apolitical, non-profit organisation dedicated to strengthening and unifying European radiology in order to improve patient care. The Society works closely with national radiological societies across Europe and further afield, while establishing relationships with major international organisations from other related fields.
