MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - March 27, 2012) -

Virtual Radiologic (vRad), a technology-enabled national radiology practice, announced today its 2012 scholarship program with the Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA). The educational scholarship, which has awarded over $10,000 since 2011, provides RBMA members the opportunity to attend an RBMA conference. The scholarships cover registration fees and other costs recipients incur for attending RBMA conferences.

Willard Glover of Santa Fe Imaging in Santa Fe, NM, was named the first recipient of the scholarship this year. The scholarship enabled Glover to attend RBMA's Better Building Radiology Marketing Programs conference this month. "This was my first year attending the conference, thanks to vRad's support of local radiology practices," explained Glover. "It was exciting to take advantage of the opportunity to learn and share with my peers and bring back real-world strategies to strengthen my practice."

"We are proud to continue our scholarship program in partnership with RBMA," said Dr. Pat Basu, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Medical Officer of vRad. "This is part of our ongoing commitment to supporting education, collaboration and innovation on best practices within the field of radiology."

"vRad's scholarship gives RBMA members access to RBMA educational resources and networking opportunities," said Michael Mabry, Executive Director of RBMA.
