Heidi Patriquin Award for International Education

In recognition of Dr. Patriquin's commitment to international education, this fellowship is designed to subsidize the expenses of one Pediatric Radiologist per year who practices outside of North America.Award specifications: Funding will be provided to partially defray the cost of attendance at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Pediatric Radiology. The annual fellowship award will be capped at $3,000. Pediatric Radiologists who reside and practice outside of North America, who seek to attend the SPR Annual Meeting for the purpose of education, and are in need of financial support to do so, are eligible candidates for the Patriquin Fellowship.

Priority is given to eligible applicants who have never attended an SPR meeting.
