Mammograms to MRI 2020 – COVID-19 Update

Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Kiawah Island, South Carolina

General Information


Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Mammograms to MRI course.  We’ve spent much time discussing what is in the best interest of both our registrants and faculty members and the families of both.    

We will be back at Kiawah Island Resort next summer (June 20-23, 2021) and would love to see you there. 



In support of improving patient care, Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education & Professional Development is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), to provide continuing education for the health care team.


Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education & Professional Development designates this activity for a maximum of 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


We are pleased to offer Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) which meet the American Board of Radiology’s criteria for self-assessment activities in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.
