The Margulis Society for Alumni

Since its inception, the Margulis Society has grown substantially and its role in underwriting the radiology training program has become firmly established. The primary source of funds for this effort has been the yearly donations of Margulis Society members.

The Margulis Society underwrites most of the registration fees, travel and housing costs required for UCSF residents to attend courses at the Armed Institute of Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) in Washington, D.C., during elective training months. 

Special projects also receive funding. These include support for research grants to further trainee research projects, support for trainee team-building activities, and the donation of computer equipment for the libraries and learning centers of Moffitt-Long and ZSFG. The Margulis Society funded the renovation of Stone Library in 2008. The annual Margulis Society Career Conferenceoffers a key opportunity for discussion and dialog between current resident and fellow trainees, faculty and graduates of the UCSF Radiology and Biomedical Imaging residency and fellowship programs.
