Membership benefits – sharing best practices, leveraging our size

Ask any member of Strategic Radiology to name the benefits of membership, and the first thing they usually say is, “The ability to collaborate with my peers.”

Everyone, whether a radiologist, a CEO, or any management-level employee, benefits from the ability to collaborate with their peers across practice settings, but there are many other tangible membership benefits. Some practices save more than they pay in dues just by participating in the malpractice risk purchasing group offered through our Group Purchasing Organization.
