Calendar of Events

The Radiology Interest Group hosts several events throughout the academic year. For both the fall and spring semesters, a noon talk is held with a speaker from the UW Department of Radiology. Our premier event of the year is our annual dinner, which is held every January/February. In our annual dinner, students are treated to a dinner in the Madison area along with the opportunity to meet numerous faculty, residents, and fellows from the UW Department of Radiology. Attendees have consistently stated what a wonderful event this is and how it has been extremely beneficial for learning more about the field of radiology.
