Eyler Fellowship


The William R. Eyler Editorial Fellowship provides an opportunity for mid-career radiologists to further their experience in radiologic journalism by working with RSNA journal editors and publications staff.

As an Eyler fellow, you’ll learn about manuscript preparation and editing, peer review, journal production, printing and digital publishing. At the end of the fellowship, you'll complete a program evaluation and prepare a follow-up report on your experiences during and after the fellowship.

The 2022 application cycle is closed and will reopen again in 2023. Learn about the 2022 Eyler fellow below.
