A Message from Dr. Jane Benson
Fellowship directors face unique challenges in administering their programs and maintaining compliance with the ACGME’s changing requirements. This is a place where fellowship directors can connect with each other through a listserv and email directory, exchange nuts-and-bolts methods through postings and downloads, and explore other learning resources through links and recommendations. This is NOT the place for prospective fellows to look at programs!   Please go to https://apps.acgme.org/ads/Public/Programs/Search to find that information.

Participation is voluntary and you don’t have to do everything.  Follow the links below to join the listserv, post your email address in the directory, fill out a program profile, and post examples of “what works for you”. Please remember that this site and everything posted on it is open to all SPR members, though not to the general public.

Program Profile:  The purpose of this is to give other directors an idea of the context of the examples you are providing; they may wish to use examples from a program most like their own. The section “What I want other directors to know” is your chance to impart some of your hard-won wisdom that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the Examples categories. Click HERE to complete a program profile questionnaire.

Program Resources:  Please look at what is already there under the various categories and find the best “fit” for your example. Please follow the naming convention so that the webmaster posts them in the correct place and so that other directors can find what they want quickly. Submit your examples here Submit your program resources example. Formats can be .doc, .docx. .ppt, or .pdf (.pptx may not yet be available to all users). If you think another category is needed, please email me.

Updating your examples: Each example should be dated in the title as to when you composed or posted it. If you make changes, change the date in the title of the new version that you send; the webmaster will then know what example to take down and replace.

Additions to the annotated library: When you find a great resource (online teaching file, quiz software, book, You-Tube video, etc.) write a short review and send it and the reference to Annotated Library Submission Form.

Thanks for your participation, and I hope that this webpage becomes useful to everyone.

This is an ideal opportunity for your fellows to gain cardiac imaging expertise and avail of long-term cardiac imaging mentorship that will facilitate them to practice cardiac imaging at their local institution.
