The 19th Annual Magnetic Resonance Managers Society (MRMS) Conference will be held in San Antonio, TX, April 24-28 at the Omni La Mansion del Rio.
With hundreds of professional 'alphabet' organizations in the health care industry from the RSNA on down, it's not surprising that MRMS, with its highly focused mission, is not on most people's Top 10 List.
"But all that's going to change this year," asserts Charles Deschamps, President-elect of MRMS for 2010-11. Deschamps says, "The MRMS is working with DOTmed this year to get the word out about our society and the educational and networking benefits we offer MRI Managers and Radiology Directors."
Sharon Worsham, the outgoing MRMS president added, "We're excited about the potential this new promotional effort offers, and we're looking to see more people than ever at our Annual Conference."
While the MRMS focuses on the unique business aspects inherent to MRI management, directors and managers of all imaging modalities can benefit from attending the event.
If MRMS is not on your top ten list yet, it should be. Here are the top ten reasons why:
