ESSR Grants and Club for Young Radiologists

What we offer to young Radiologists?

ESSR Young Stars Club

Raise your voice

Members under the age of 40 with interest in involvement in the ESSR are asked to become members of a new Young Stars Club.
We address residents in training, fellows, PhD students (not only radiologists) and medical students

  • Educational demands from the young members’ perspective
  • Makerspace (collaborative work space inside a school, library or public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing with high tech)

This group met for the first time at the ESSR congress in Bari in 2017 under the umbrella of the ESSR Education Committee and collected ideas and initiatives to support young colleagues in the field of musculoskeletal imaging.

We kindly invite young colleagues to join this club!

In case of interest, please contact
