The Canadian Association for Interventional Radiology (CAIR) Resident, Fellow, and Student Section (RFS) shall serve as the voice of and act as a resource for future and current interventional radiology trainees throughout Canada.
The CAIR RFS will support future interventional radiology trainees in fostering their interest in the specialty and in providing them with educational opportunities to help realize their goals.
The CAIR RFS will promote the work of current interventional radiology trainees and work to foster life-long engagement with the organization.
As future interventional radiologists, the CAIR RFS will work alongside the CAIR to advocate to advance innovative minimally-invasive and image-guided procedures which improve the lives of Canadians and to ensure that interventional radiology education in Canada continually allows interventional radiology trainees to develop skills which allow them to provide superior patient care to Canadians.
