Young ESGAR Committees and Activities

Young ESGAR organizes a range of (online) activities and is actively involved in the ESGAR annual meeting program:

The Young ESGAR anatomy e-Tutorials are short educational videos that are designed to make anatomy fun again! The first e-Tutorials were launched during the ESGAR annual meeting in 2020 and all available tutorials are now permanently available via the website.

During the annual ESGAR meetings, Young ESGAR helps organize the School of ESGAR (SOE) program, which include the Tricky Cases sessions and the online Cases of the day quiz. YE also organizes the ‘speed mentoring sessions’ where young ESGAR members can interact with senior mentors from the ESGAR faculty in an informal setting.

Young ESGAR is involved in the ESGAR Research Mentorship program that was launched in 2020-2021 and then re-launched as a peer-to-peer mentoring program in 2022-2023. The mentorship program is organized by the Research Committee in collaboration with YE.

The Young ESGAR e-Academywebinar series provides residents and young radiologists with educational lectures and case presentations on different topics. The webinars are held by Young ESGAR members and moderated by experienced ESGAR Faculty members, giving YE members the opportunity to boost their presentation skills. 

Young ESGAR organizes different social events, such as the ‘Young ESGAR aperitivo’ during the ESGAR annual meeting and the online ‘Young ESGAR Pubquiz’.
