Brazilian Marathon of Residents already has open enrollment

Marathon is synonymous with preparation, competitiveness and resilience and, just like in sports, these words accompany the participants of the Brazilian Marathon of Residents in Radiology and Image Diagnosis (MBR18), CBR's radiological knowledge competition. The action, which in a short time has already become a tradition at the Brazilian Congress of Radiology, arrives in its 3rd edition this year with the objective of promoting rapprochement between resident physicians and trainees from different institutions, stimulating the mastery of radiological knowledge among physicians residents and trainees, promote the exchange of experiences between different institutions in the country and abroad, in addition to boosting academic activity and fostering the spirit of cooperation and teamwork. MBR18 requires separate registrations from the XLVII Brazilian Congress of Radiology (CBR 18) and is scheduled for 12:10 pm on October 13, the last day of the event. Registration is free for those registered for the Congress and must be done by email maratonacbr18@cbr.org.br, by completing the form, by October 5th, or on site. Click here and check the regulation. Teams formed by three participants can register, without the need to belong to the same institution or be in the same training year. Two or more teams from the same service are also allowed. The groups will have 40 seconds to answer each question, all involving radiological images. Last year, more than 20 teams from all over the country participated. It is worth mentioning that only doctors who are attending one of the three official years of residency or improvement are allowed to participate. As a result, fourth-year residents and trainees (R4 and A4) will not be able to enroll. As in previous editions, as an incentive and prize, the members of the winning team will receive registration, air tickets and accommodation to participate in the Annual Meeting of American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS 2019), in Honolulu, Hawaii, (USA), from May 5th to 10th.
