“SIIM is committed to providing accessible, affordable, and customizable education for the imaging informatics professional,” says Marc Kohli, MD, SIIM Board Chair. “We could not be more excited to partner with Credly as the next step in the Society’s digital strategy to award badges that not only showcase learner achievements but connect them globally to one another.
