Fourth-year medical student Danielle Cunningham recently received a student travel scholarship to attend the next Society of Interventional Radiology Annual Scientific Meeting.

The award provides funding for selected medical students to take part in sessions of the organization’s upcoming meetings in April 2016 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Student training programs will focus on topics ranging from the history of interventional radiology to cutting-edge clinical approaches and procedures in vascular disease, pediatrics, liver disease and research.

“The Society of Interventional Radiology scholarship will help me learn about how to succeed in the residency match process, as well as the newest techniques in interventional radiology,” Cunningham said. “I’m especially excited for the classes about interventional oncology, which uses interventional radiology techniques to treat cancer.”

Students are selected to receive the scholarship based on applications that include their CV, short essays on interventional radiology questions and recommendations by mentors or instructors.
