President's Message

I am extremely honored and humbled to be serving as the next President of the American Society of Emergency Radiology.  I have a deep-rooted respect for the missions of this society having been trained as a resident by one of its founding members, Dr. Charles Mueller, and later becoming one of his partners.  I have always been impressed with the energy and enthusiasm that the membership has exuded, and the visions of the leadership.  I plan on carrying on this tradition, and hope to make my presidential platform one of transparency and forward thinking.  I would like to lead the society in a practical but enduring way, with the intent of preserving the traditions and perspectives of our founders while forging new opportunities that create synergy with partners who share our values and have similar philosophy.

This wonderful journey will allow me to “pay it forward”.   I will take this opportunity to establish methodologies that translate into consistency and will work tirelessly to incorporate the many lessons that I have learned throughout my career to formalize procedures that will ease the goal of achieving both short and long-term objectives.  I would like to make the transition between presidents more seamless so that initiatives that begin under one administration remain in focus and continue to gain momentum.  Our subspecialty is at a critical juncture and we need to crystallize our identity.  As a group, we need to continue to lay down additional bricks and mortar to further solidify the foundation of Emergency Radiology, so that our collective voices remain relevant in the future, particularly in upcoming discussions related to the certification processes in Radiology.  I am calling on all of you to embrace this challenge.

I encourage your participation and look forward to working with many of you this year.  I could not be more excited to represent the ASER.  The Annual Meeting for 2017 will take place in the beautiful metropolis of Toronto, Canada, and I am certain that you will find that the education content will be outstanding for both the neophyte as well as the seasoned radiologist.  As always, our excellent management team in IMM will make sure that the meeting is well-organized, and your comfort a top priority.
