    New York Times Examines Change in Outlook for Radiology Residents

    Declining salaries and dwindling job opportunities for radiology residents have attracted the attention of the New York Times, which explored the issues in a
    March 27 article.

    “Job Prospects are Dimming for Radiology Trainees” looks at why residents are finding it increasingly difficult to find jobs, let alone those well-compensated enough to cover debt accumulated during training. Medicare reimbursement cuts, teleradiology, public scrutiny of the value of some imaging tests and initiatives to emphasize primary care all were identified as factors. Read the article at http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/28/health/trainees-in-radiology-and-other-specialties-see-dream-jobs-disappearing.html.

    The RSNA Resident and Fellow Committee will meet this month at RSNA Headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill. One of the committee’s responsibilities is to develop content for the Residents and Fellow Symposium during the annual meeting. Each year symposium sessions look at issues including career planning and legal aspects of working in radiology. Committee members also provide feedback to RSNA regarding how the Society can best meet the changing needs of radiology trainees. A report detailing the committee’s latest activities will be published in the August issue of RSNA News. Learn more by clicking Committees at RSNA.org/Leadership.aspx and selecting Resident and Fellow Committee.
