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

President's note

Greetings from the South 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 Atlanta, Georgia this year 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 find new locations 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 to an all-new venue. The Atlanta Marriott Marquis is recognized as one of the great structure hotels in the south. Its unique interior design has made it one of the most interesting hotels.

 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.

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 networking and socializing to the audience each night with our annual ARPE social on Friday night with special guest country artist TIM NEUMAN. He will be performing his hits and more. Then Saturday night, the vendors will have a social for us. This allows for more networking and socializing. Large vendor group this year to show tons of products. Lets show our support for them supporting us.


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.
