At its most recent meeting in June, the RSNA Resident & Fellow Committee (RFC) discussed the Resident & Fellow Symposium at RSNA 2013 and gave an update on RSNA’s Fellowship Connect website that links residents and fellows with available fellowship positions.
At the meeting at RSNA Headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., RFC members finalized plans for this year’s Resident and Fellow Symposium designed to provide useful information to residents and fellows as they begin their career paths. Sessions will include “Career 101: Planning for Success after Residency” and “Survival Skills for Your Job.” RFC Chairman Aparna Annam, D.O., will provide an introduction at both sessions. The committee also discussed potential topics and speakers for the 2014 meeting.
The committee reviewed the status of Fellowship Connect, a searchable database of available fellowship positions throughout the U.S., available free to all RSNA members as a member benefit. Find it at fellowships.rsna.org.
Future plans include a pilot project for a Member-in-Training Education Portal that would allow users to access resident/fellow-specific education housed in one area on RSNA.org. RFC members also heard about plans to launch a mentoring program for senior residents and fellows interested in becoming RadioGraphics reviewers in 2014. Further details will be forthcoming.
The RFC will next meet in December during RSNA 2013. For more information on the committee, go to RSNA.org/Trainees.aspx.
