Broken into two sessions, SIIMposiums will pair an overview of the topic and introduction of the panelists. The SIIMposiums Overview sessions will entail a 1-hour session focused on providing attendees with a foundation and update on relevant topics. After a short break, SIIMposium Breakouts 2 will begin with immediate breakouts to focus on one or several aspects discussed during the Overview. These Breakouts will focus on practical How Tos, sharing of work, and advanced learning. Culminating the session, participants will come back together to share their group discussions/work with the entire audience.
