Legislative Fellowship

Dr John Scales, third year radiology resident, recently participated in the Legislative Fellowship that was developed and funded by The Florida Radiological Society (FRS) in Tallahassee. The purpose of the fellowship is to introduce organized medicine and the political process to radiology residents. FRS lobbyist, Alison Dudley organized the fellowship, which took place over three days, and included meetings with state representatives and senators on various issues, such as the budget, managed care, clinical practice reimbursement, medical school education, physician retention in Florida, and women’s and children’s health care.
