International Education Conference


For over fifteen years, the SAR (formerly under the SGR) has sponsored an International Education Conference (IEC), a collaborative educational program in which members travel to countries in Central and South America and provide lectures at the host country’s national or regional radiological meetings.

Since its inception, IEC Faculty teams have traveled to such locations as Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Peru, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Uruguay, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and South Africa. Those that have participated in the past have returned from their sponsored international educational travel energized and inspired by the intellectual and cultural exchange.
