International Speakers Exchange Award

Each year thousands of radiologic science professionals from around the world come together to share best practices, the latest research results and knowledge gleaned from many years of experience. The International Speakers Exchange Award program provides the opportunity for two outstanding ASRT members to travel to one of these conferences each year and present to an audience of their peers and other related health care professionals.

Meet the 2019 International Speakers Exchange Award winners.

Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 International Speakers Exchange Award has been suspended. We expect this program to resume in 2022, with the application period opening Aug. 1, 2022.
