Leadership

 

The number of female radiologists publishing articles in academic journals jumped significantly from 1970 to 2000, but that trend has slowed down in recent years, according to a new study published in Academic Radiology.

Numerous past presidents of the Radiology Business Management Association will be on hand when RBMA members gather April 5 to 8 in San Diego. The event is the group’s 2018 PaRADigm conference. The current leadership is bringing in a presidential lineup spanning five decades to showcase how far the organization has come—and to underscore how vital its work remains—half a century after it was founded.

In this modern era of quality over quantity, reducing the causes of burnout is one of the most effective ways imaging leaders can ensure patients receive the best care possible. For a new study published in Academic Radiology, researchers surveyed a group of radiology residents to better understand their sense of personal accomplishment (PA) and learn how it could be improved.

The first female chief resident in an all-male program shares her thoughts on how far women have come in radiology and how far they still have to go.

If you aren’t enhancing a young rad’s raw talent right now—and figuring diversity into radiology’s future—you’re hurting your practice’s long-term outlook.
