By serving the more than 1,000 radiologists, radiation oncologists, and medical physicists in our state, the MRS works to: advance the science, education, and practice of radiology; improve radiologic imaging services to patients and the medical community; foster close fellowship among radiologists; address the economics of radiology; and to establish and maintain high medical and ethical standards in our practice.


Genesis of the Foundation

-Declining membership in the MRS and as a result declining funds

-Will be harder to continue the educational and young physician leadership development in the future. 

-Increasing corporatization of the radiology landscape tends to decrease membership in societies. 

-Decreasing Academic institutional membership involvement. e. Competing sources for CME and MOC development. 

-Goal is to provide a source of funding that will propagate the young physician educational mission of the MRS.


Board of Directors

-Diverse board representing: Geographic, gender, practice, and age diversity.


Incentives
