From October 1st – October 31st, 2017


will hold its FOURTH annual


But this year with a twist –

RFS will be competing against the YPS!


  • Only contributors in October 2017 will count.
  • Minimum RFS Contribution: $25.*
  • Minimum YPS Contribution: $40

 What’s At Stake:

  • If RFS has more contributors, RADPAC will donate $500 to the Resident Fellow Section.
  • If YPS have more contributors, RADPAC will donate $500 to the Young Professionals Section. 
  • Regardless of whom wins, the department or practice with the most YPS contributors and the department with the most RFS contributors will win a pizza party courtesy of RADPAC. 

*Residents and Fellows that donated previously in 2017 can donate $15 to count for RADtoberfest. Any RFS member that signs up for a $5/month recurring contribution will also count, and if you are already set up for a recurring contribution, as long as one of those contributions occurs in October, that will count towards the competition! 

Chicago Reception:  All participants in RADToberfest are invited to join RADPAC complimentary for a two-hour open bar in Chicago, Illinois during RSNA at HQBeercade.  RFS and YPS members may contribute at the door, but the minimum requested donation will go up to $30 for the RFS and $45 for YPS.  Find the invitation here!

2015 Results:

The Residents barely won in 2015 – with 122 contributing residents and 107 contributing attendings it was a close race! 

Many schools deserve kudos, but the highest percentage with close to 100% goes to:Baptist Health System - Birmingham, AL, a second year in a row for them to win. 

The most amount of contributing residents from one program goes to the Medical University of South Carolina. 

And the attending program with the most amount of contributors is once again Montefiore out of New York.

2014 RADToberfest Residents vs Attendings Results:

Residents for the WIN!  In a huge win for the Residents, and with large increases over prior months, and many donating for their first time, the Residents had 156 donors contribute over $15 during RADToberfest.  Many programs were very active in participating in the challenge, and the winners of the pizza party goes to Mass General – with 14 contributing residents and Baptist Health System - Birmingham with 77% of its residents donating.  The attendings definitely rallied towards the end of the month, and ended up with 66 donors, but that was still short of the 166 the residents had for the win.  Special mention to Montefiore Medical Center for winning the attending challenge with 24 attendings participating in this challenge!
