STR Mentorship Program

The STR Mentorship Committee is dedicated to providing high performance career guidance to junior and mid-level members through traditional means as well as through peer mentorship.  Our intention is to encourage engagement of STR members with their peers and the society, and by providing mentorship promote the development of the next generation of leaders in our field.


Members may participate in mentoring, as either a mentor or mentee (in some cases, both) by answering a brief annual survey, indicating their areas of interest and / or expertise. The distribution of process guidance from the Mentoring Committee facilitates high quality, empowered mentorship, and ensures bilateral alignment and understanding of expectations for the process. Mentorship is offered in these areas:

  • Research: Grant applications
  • Research: Clinical trials
  • Research: Building a clinical research portfolio
  • Education: Medical Students
  • Education: GME (residents & fellows)
  • Quality & Safety
  • Publishing & Editorial work
  • IT and Informatics in Radiology
  • AI in Radiology
  • Career Development
  • Establishing & Running a Lung Cancer Screening Program
  • Cardiac Imaging: Clinical & research
