About ARPE

What is the ARPE?

The Academy for Radiology Physician Extenders is a professional organization created for the sole purpose of providing high quality, affordable continuing education for Radiology Physician Extenders such as the RPA (Radiology Practitioner Assistant) and RA (Radiologist Assistant). The ARPE is a non-profit, non-political organization.  This website was created to be a resource for all Extenders.  As the organization grows, you will find many additions to our educational opportunities.


President's note

I would like to extend a warm greeting from sunny Florida to all our Radiology Physician Extenders, Radiologic Technologists, Nurses and Administrators. It takes conscientious people to be devoted to their continuing education and increasing knowledge. We understand that with the high demand from accrediting agencies and medical community for all of us to show stronger expertise and dedicated continuing education credits it has become increasingly difficult. We hope that you can use this opportunity in Orlando to fulfill your CE requirements as well as a well-deserved vacation.

This annual symposium is designed to bring education, discussions, peer networking and a little rest and relaxation to the radiology family. The ARPE symposium committee has been working tirelessly to bring you this symposium. The committee works behind the scenes to bring our generous vendor sponsorships, world class faculty and a great venue together for our attendees. We are happy to bring the symposium back to the beautiful World Center Marriott in Orlando Florida. We have an awesome line up for you with great speakers from within radiology and medicine as

 The ARPE also prides itself on having some of our peers’ present lectures which relate to our daily practice. With so many of us working in different environments, it is great to hear how each of us are practicing and what each of us are doing.

This year’s symposium is dedicated to Dr. Jim Caridi for his outstanding achievement and lifetime accomplishment in making radiology better. His love for products, patients and people made him one of the best physicians’ multiple years in a row.

Next year if you have a great practice tip or cases you want to share, feel free to contact us for an opportunity to present to your peers. We are striving to be an academic organization that gives an opportunity to all radiology and medical personnel to share experiences and network.

 This year we continue to bring the networking and socializing to the audience each night with a vendor sponsored social on Friday night and our annual ARPE social on Saturday night.

Thank you again for your continued support and please feel free to let us know what you would like to see in future symposiums. This symposium is for you and any input is taken seriously. I greatly appreciate all the support that you give to our annual symposium.
