  • New Journal Position Focuses on Resident, Fellow Education

    January 01, 2013

    New RadioGraphics Editorial Board Member Jennifer A. Harvey, M.D., said she’s excited to bring her love of teaching to RSNA’s education journal. Dr. Harvey will work with RadioGraphics Editor Jeffrey S. Klein, M.D., to develop a resident-specific component of the journal and identify previous and future content directed at trainees, particularly from exhibits and courses at the RSNA annual meeting.

    Dr. Harvey, a professor of radiology and head of the Division of Breast Imaging at the University of Virginia Health System, will also work with the RSNA Resident and Fellow Committee on initiatives.

    RadioGraphics publishes excellent material at the resident/fellow level, but it is probably a little challenging for a resident or fellow to find, unless his or her attending happens to know and mentions a particular article,” Dr. Harvey said. “My goal is to identify articles that may be particularly good for trainees and make them easy to find and use.”

    RadioGraphics is an important educational resource that helps residents and fellows keep pace with rapidly changing practice standards, Dr. Harvey added.

    “Books are a great place to start learning the basics, but standards can change faster than books can incorporate the material,” she said. “RadioGraphics articles are culled from the highest quality education exhibits at RSNA and are often more timely in the communication of new applications or modalities than textbooks. In addition, the articles are often written by people who love to teach, so they make for a good read.

    “I believe this new position, with its specific focus on residents and fellows, will help a lot of trainees become more competent and confident in their skills,” Dr. Harvey added.
