Department Benefits for Radiology Residents

American Board of Radiology Dues:

The Department of Radiology will pay the resident’s ABR annual fee (currently $635). Annual fees are charged for every year you are in the initial certification process, beginning with your first year of residency. If you do not fully pass the Core or Certifying examination on the first administration, additional exam fees will apply.

The ABR will send your annual invoice in January of each year, as long as you are in the certification process. The fee amount is subject to adjustment by the ABR each year. All fees are nonrefundable. Fees must be paid on your “’myABR” account.

Travel/Professional Meetings:

The Department of Radiology will fund up to $1,500 total per year and give professional leave time for those residents who are the first author on a paper or poster that is presented at a meeting, for. Arrangements must be approved by the program director before travel plans are made.

It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the UAMS Travel Policy so you can be reimbursed without difficulty. For example, you must receive approval to rent a car before you take a trip, and you must always provide a meeting brochure that shows the single room conference rate. Always complete a Travel Request form and submit it to the program coordinator before making any travel arrangements. Present all receipts for reimbursement.

It is your responsibility to determine how much of the professional meetings count as duty hours.

Radiologic Pathology Course (AIRP):

All residents in our program are expected to attend the 4-week American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) course. The department pays your AFIP tuition and reimburses living expenses up to $1,500. The department pays your salary and benefits while away at the AIRP course. Time and money designated for AIRP may not be used for other purposes. Present all receipts for reimbursement.
