Visiting Professor Program

The Visiting Professor Program is coordinated by Dr. Sat Somers. The program incorporates a minimum of eight visiting Professors a year. An attempt is made to cover all areas of radiology, each year. The speakers are chosen based on their knowledge of the subject and excellence in teaching. Each visiting Professor gives three lectures and shows board-type cases to the residents. These teaching sessions are open to everyone.

The titles for presentation are selected by consensus from a list provided by the speaker. Radiologists, with an interest in the area, and residents provide an input into the selection of the topics. To encourage networking, resident and faculty members are invited to dinner with the visiting professor.

Suggestions for visiting Professors are always welcome.

For further details, please contact Dr. Somers at somers@mcmaster.ca.
