Management in Radiology (MIR), the leading European congress focusing on all aspects of management and healthcare process optimisation, kicks off their Annual Scientific Meeting in the city of Nice (France) on Thursday, September 29th to Friday September 30th 2011. For the first time, and taking place today, there will be an associated Radiologists in Training Management Course together with the main conference.
The topics for this workshop have been specifically chosen to help radiologists towards the end of their training as they plan their career after qualification. The combination of the Junior Radiologists Course with the MIR main conference provides a wonderful opportunity for young radiologists to learn about radiology management topics and to network with leaders in radiology from throughout Europe and North America.
Sessions are extremely practical and applicable for those seeking advancement in their medical imaging careers, and include talks on issues such as “Management in General”, a heading that is divided into sub-themes such as
- Why bother getting involved in management?
- What patients, colleagues and administration expect from us?
- How to learn and get trained in management?
Another session, which is on Training and Certification provides useful information with presentations such as “Certificates of knowledge and certificates of competence – the ESRdiploma and others”, “The ESR diploma – experiences by a “first time” candidate” and importantly, “How to shine at interviews”, a talk that will be reinforced by sessions that then allow participants to undergo mock interviews and receive feedback on their approach.
