October 26, 2016

Reston, VAThe Radiology Leadership Institute® (RLI), which provides radiologists with high-quality training in leadership and professional development, has won the “Best Radiologist Training Program” award in the 2016 “Minnies.”

“The Radiology Leadership Institute equips radiology professionals with the leadership and business management skills they need to succeed in their careers and to help their practices and departments to do well in the rapidly changing landscape of U.S. health care,” said Frank J. Lexa, MD, MBA, RLI chief medical officer and chair of the American College of Radiology(ACR) Commission on Leadership and Practice Development. “All of us at the RLI are honored to receive this award. It’s not a coincidence that the RLI has been voted twice as the ‘Best Radiologist Training Program’ by the radiology community since its launch in 2011,” he noted. “The RLI allows radiology professionals to promote better patient care by improving operations and effectiveness, to enhance and improve working relationships with our stakeholders, to build bridges with larger institutions to create value and to apply proven business principles to manage change,” he added.

Initiated by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the RLI offers robust face-to-face learning in a variety of geographic locations, featuring world-class instructors, team projects, case analysis and web-based distance learning. Its program, which is targeted to all levels of radiology experience, whether in private practice or academic settings, also received this top honor in the 2014 Minnies. The Minnies award process allows radiology professionals to recognize excellence in medical imaging. Candidates are selected from nominations; winners are chosen through several rounds of voting by expert panelists.

The RLI provides the non-clinical skills not learned in medical school, focusing on the latest theories in management and best practices for those leading a practice, in a new leadership role, or embarking on a career or in residency or fellowship.
