    Membership was $12.50 (prorated to last month) when I joined.
    Meeting registration is free though if you are a medical student member. $30 if you are a non-member medical student.

    I am in Chicago for school and doing my ob/gyn rotation during the meeting and will not be able to be there for the entire meeting. Does anyone know if there are any lectures/events that are "should see" or "must go" for an MS3 to get a better idea for the field and advice for career planning?

    I just sent my application in last week for the SIR membership and coughed up the 12.50. Oh well.

    Here is a link to the daily program for anyone else interested in going:

    It must have literally just changed or I used an older form. Regardless it was a great deal and am looking forward to the conference.

    Thanks! I wanted to join, but was too cheap to cough up the cash. Now to find a way to get my school to pay for the travel expenses. I don't even think our residents/fellows our going :(

    The med student events sound helpful!

    Any med students that hang out in this forum going to the SIR meeting in Chicago? I really wanted to go, and the head honcho IR attending at my school said that anyone interested just needed to write their name down on a list and he would take care of the rest. Unfortunately, it is the last weekend before my Family Med shelf...... :(

    Definitely. Plus, some of the students involved with SIR have been working on getting the word out to med students in Chicago and surrounding areas, so we're hoping for a good turnout.

    We also heard some exciting news from SIR yesterday:

    "I wanted to let you all know that we are going to open Sunday, March 27 as a free admission day for any medical student to attend the Annual Meeting. They will be able to participate in all of the sessions and visit the exhibit hall. Please spread the word!

    Med Students will still have to register on-site to receive their badge for the one day pass, so we encourage for them to arrive at the convention center early, or even register at the convention center on Saturday to avoid the normal Sunday morning registration lines. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    I will be working on an invitation and online form for medical students to RSVP if they are coming to the medical student brunch, so that we can plan accordingly."


    So, if you can only make it out for Sunday or just want to learn more about IR without signing up for a membership just yet, this is a perfect option. We will post an update here as soon as we get further information about how to RSVP for Sunday's activities.

    Overall, it's a great opportunity to learn about the field and meet others who are interested in IR! Hope to see you there!

    I would love to attend, especially for the resident/fellow panel for the pathways to IR. We'll see, I'm only about 100 minutes up the road from Chicago.

    1. (FREE) –Register via http://www.tfaforms.com/195805 and you will be able to attend the events on Sunday, March 27 which are geared for medical students.

    2. (FREE) – Register to become an SIR Medical Student member via the link for the complimentary membership form (found at the top of this thread) and you will be able to attend events/lectures/seminars during the entire meeting, from March 26-31.
