PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Dear ASER member,

I am extremely humbled to have been selected to serve as President of the American Society of Emergency Radiology for this next year and will do my best to bring new and interesting learning opportunities to both the Society as a whole and you, as an individual member.  

As you may have heard, the ABR has recently announced their intent to formalize a recertification pathway in OUR subspecialty, Emergency Radiology, as part of their OLA process.  This is very exciting, and something we’ve been striving to achieve for more than 25 years.  It has taken not the voice of a few, but many, which I feel is a great life lesson we can draw upon as we work to further strengthen our Society and subspecialty.

Over the past few years, we have gained considerable ground in broadening and solidifying our foundation in order that we might extend our reach to members of all career levels, specifically focused in the areas of education, service and best practices guidelines.  The excitement is palpable!  As we work on the many projects, we are reminded how much we need you, the membership.  Some of you have expressed your desire to get deeply involved in the Society’s day-to-day operations, some desire to serve on committees, others are interested in the contribution of educational content and others simply want to receive the fruits that come to bear when everyone works together.  The truth is….we need it all!  Not only is your vision very important to me, it is relevant to the other Executive Committee members, as well as the other Leaders of the Society.  Regardless of your experience level in emergency radiology, we want to hear your thoughts and ideas, albeit you’re a medical student, resident, fellow or practicing radiologist.  

Together, we speak with one giant voice — members and Society Leaders collaborating together to make both ASER and the field of Emergency Radiology a truly successful and integrated team!

Sincerely,
Ronald Bilow
ASER President 2019-2020
