The Wellness and Burnout Committee is a new committee under the Member Services Division. The Wellness and Burnout Committee will work to raise awareness to the society about wellness and burnout in medicine. The group will be responsible for staying abreast of the latest information regarding this topic and will work to educate SIR members. This committee will collaborate with other sections and committees representing SIR’s membership.
SIR and SIR Foundation encourage members to apply to join an education or clinically-focused committee, or one of the many other committees that fit an area of expertise or interest. These committees offer members opportunities to influence the practice and study of medicine, network with colleagues in similar fields of expertise and participate in Society and Foundation leadership activities. Annually, the SIR and SIR Foundation holds an open call for committee volunteers. Please submit your application for consideration in this years application cycle. If you have questions about the committee appointment process feel free to contact email@example.com.
Committee Terms and Commitment
Members can serve on a committee for a maximum of two consecutive three-year terms (up to six years). Commitment varies based on level of activity of each committee. All committee members must attend committee meetings and participate in conference calls. In-person meetings are usually held during the Annual Scientific Meeting.
Diversity and Inclusion
The Society of Interventional Radiology recognizes that the success of our mission draws strength not just from the clinical expertise of our physicians, but from the diversity of their backgrounds and experiences as human beings in the world. Our Society values a culture of inclusion in which all members of the IR community are accepted, respected and embraced. Our definition of diversity includes, but is not limited to the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, nationality, age, physical and mental ability, socioeconomic status, and ideologies.
