Pinoy Pride at RSNA

As the Radiological Society of North America celebrates its 100th year, its Committee on International Radiology Education (RSNA-CIRE) is presently headed by Dr. Teresita L. Angtuaco, MD, a proud “kababayan”who spent her early years and studies in the Philippines, but has since accomplished much in her professional and academic career in Arkansas, USA.


Dra. Angtuaco graduated from UP College of Medicine in 1973  and since 1975 has lived in the US.  She did an internship in St. Barnabas Medical Center in New Jersey and went to Boston in 1976 for diagnostic radiology residency.  Dra. Angtuaco has been at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences since 1979 and currently a Professor of Radiology and Ob/Gyn.


The International Radiology Education Committee of RSNA spearheads the various programs extending to all continents and inspiring the present and future generations of Radiology.  These programs include the International Visiting Professor Program, Derek Harwood-Nash International Fellowship, Introduction to Research for International Young Academics, Research Seed Grant, Education Scholar Grant, and others.  They are welcoming all interested and qualified applicants.


On December 3, 2014, the RSNA-CIRE invited the Presidents and Officers of the diverse International Societies to a meeting to report the current thrust and scope of their activities. Just in the recent decade or so, more and more countries outside North America have participated in these programs that have had a positive impact on hundreds of practicing Radiologists and Radiologists in training.  These activities have proven to be fruitful learning endeavors for the international recipients as well as the professors/institutions sharing their expertise and love of Radiology.


Dra. Angtuaco is proud to be our “kabababayan” and extends her best wishes and encouragement to all the members of the Philippine College for Radiology for a bright future.
