The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) is dedicated to the lifelong learning and practice improvement of the magnetic resonance community and those interested in learning more about magnetic resonance.

As a key component to ISMRM's commitment to offer education with both breadth and depth designed to meet the needs of the professional community throughout the various stages of a career, the ISMRM has launched a FREE online education portal. This portal is complimentary to the entire MR community, and you do not need to be a member to enjoy the content.

The ISMRM Education Committee, which is chaired by Dr. Shahid Hussain, is curating the best of the ISMRM's archived presentations into courses at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels that are available online for easy access anytime, to anyone, for further professional development.

Primary course topics include:

  • Body
  • Cardiovascular
  • Cross Cutting & Emerging Technologies
  • Diffusion/Perfusion/fMRI
  • Molecular/Spectroscopy
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Neuroradiology
  • Physics & Engineering

Additional programming is currently under development. We believe these courses will enrich your knowledge of MR and further your interest in ISMRM, and we encourage you to tell your colleagues about this new educational resource.
