Membership in the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has shown consistent growth, and the Society now includes over 28,000 radiologists, physicists, and allied scientists.
Active or Associate Membership in the Society is open to radiologists, physicists, and allied scientists who meet certain educational and residency requirements and who practice radiology. Membership is by application, endorsement by the district's Counselor, review and approval by the Membership and Credentials Board, and vote by the membership. Benefits of membership include annual subscriptions to the journals Radiology and RadioGraphics and attendance without fee at the annual scientific assembly. Current annual dues are $215.00. The application fee is $75.00.
Member-in-Training Membership and Associate Member-in-Training Membership in the Society is offered to residents in approved radiology residency training programs, residents in dental and veterinary radiology, and graduate students in medical physics. This level of membership is highly subsidized as a demonstration of the Society's commitment to radiological education. Applications for training membership must be reviewed and approved by each applicant's program director. Members may remain at this subsidized level of membership until their training is complete, up to a maximum of 5 years. At the conclusion of the residency or graduate program, training members are surveyed to determine their eligibility to move into a category of full membership. Benefits for Member-in-Training and Associate Member-in-Training membership are the same as those for Active and Associate membership. Current annual dues are $80.00.
Corresponding Membership in the Society is open to radiologists and allied scientists who reside or practice in a country outside of North America, but who otherwise meet the qualifications for Active or Associate membership. This revised classification of membership was established by amendment to the Bylaws in November 1978. Membership is by application, endorsement by the Membership Chairman, review and approval by the Membership and Credentials Board, and vote by the membership. Benefits of Corresponding membership are the same as those for Active and Associate membership. Current annual dues are $260.00. The application fee is $75.00.
