Association of Characteristics, Deficits, and Outcomes of Residents Placed on Probation at One Institution, 2002-2012. - Academic medicine : journal of the Association of American Medical Colleges
To describe the population of residents placed on probation, identify learner characteristics associated with being placed on probation, and describe immediate and long-term career outcomes for those placed on probation as compared with matched controls.The authors collected data for residents at the University of Colorado School of Medicine placed on probation from July 2002 to June 2012, including postgraduate year placed on probation, deficits identified, mandated evaluation for physical and mental health, duration of probation, disability accommodations requested, and number of additional training months required. They were retrospectively compared with 102 controls matched for specialty, matriculation, and postgraduate year. Variables assessed included demographics, academic performance, license status, specialty, state board certification, and board citations.Of 3,091 residents, 3.3% were placed on probation (88 residents; 14 fellows). Compared with controls, those on probation were more likely to be international medical graduates, married, not Caucasian, older (all P < .001), male (P = .01), to have transferred from another graduate medical education training program, and to have taken time off between medical school and residency (all P < .001). Among those currently in practice, 53 (63.9%) were board certified compared with 93 (100%) of the controls. Placement on probation was associated with failure to graduate and lack of board certification. All 7 graduates cited by state medical boards were in the probation group.Further research is needed to understand these associations and to determine whether changes in curricula or remediation programs may alter these outcomes.
American diagnostic radiology residency and fellowship programmes. - Annals of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore
American Diagnostic Radiology Residency and Fellowship programmes are Graduate Medical Education programmes in the United States (US) equivalent to the Postgraduate Medical Education programmes in Singapore. Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited diagnostic radiology residency programmes require 5 years total with Post Graduate Year (PGY) 1 year internship in a clinical specialty, e.g. Internal Medicine following medical school. PGY Years 2 to 5 are the core years which must include Radiology Physics, Radiation Biology and rotations in 9 required subspecialty rotations: Abdominal, Breast, Cardiothoracic, Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology, Nuclear and Paediatric Radiology, Obstetric & Vascular Ultrasound and Vascular Interventional Radiology. A core curriculum of lectures must be organised by the required 9 core subspecialty faculty. All residents (PGY 2 to 4) take a yearly American College of Radiology Diagnostic In-Training Examination based on national benchmarks of medical knowledge in each subspecialty. Because the American Board of Radiology (ABR) examinations are changing, until 2012, residents have to take 3 ABR examinations: (i) ABR physics examination in the PGY 2 to 3 years, (ii) a written examination at the start of the PGY 5 year and (iii) an oral exam at the end of the PGY 5 year. Beginning in 2013, there will be only 2 examinations: (i) the physics and written examinations after PGY 4 will become a combined core radiology examination. Beginning in 2015, the final certifying examination will be given 15 months after the completion of residency. After residency, ACGME fellowships in PGY 6 are all one-year optional programmes which focus on only one subspecialty discipline. There are 4 ACGME accredited fellowships which have a Board Certifi cation Examination: Neuroradiology, Nuclear, Paediatric and Vascular Interventional Radiology. Some ACGME fellowships do not have a certifying examination: Abdominal, Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology and Musculoskeletal Radiology. One year unaccredited fellowships can also be taken in Breast, Cardiothoracic or Women's Imaging.
2010 ACR Presidential Address: Patient-focused radiology: taking charge of radiation dose. - Journal of the American College of Radiology : JACR
Radiology and radiation oncology accidents involving radiation overexposure have caused increased scrutiny by the media, lawyers, our patients, and most recently the US Food and Drug Administration. We should add a new pillar for the ACR called "patient-focused radiology." We have reached new heights of quality in imaging, but at the same time, we have dramatically increased the radiation dose to the US population. We need to take charge of radiation dose and demonstrate that radiology expertise is essential to safe imaging. We need to introduce computerized order entry software that protects patients and educates physicians about the indications and contraindications of radiology examinations. We need to support the ACR in requesting federally mandated accreditation of all "advanced imaging" and radiation oncology accreditation, whether inpatient or outpatient. We need to support the ACR in requesting that Congress mandate a national CT dose registry, which will give alerts to each facility daily for radiation dose outliers and proactively protect patients from radiation overdoses.Copyright Â© 2010 American College of Radiology.

Subspecialization in radiology and radiation oncology. - Journal of the American College of Radiology : JACR
Practicing radiologists, radiation oncologists, and trainees were surveyed regarding the current state of subspecialization in practice and in training curricula. The authors present the results of these surveys, establish trends compared with previous survey data, and compare the plans of trainees with current postgraduate practice. Subspecialization is increasing in both radiology and radiation oncology. There remain substantial numbers of practitioners who perform work they deem "general" in nature. The authors also present a method to more accurately measure subspecialization and workload.
Radiologic history exhibit: the American Association for Women Radiologists (AAWR): 25 years of promoting women in radiology. - Radiographics : a review publication of the Radiological Society of North America, Inc
On the 25th anniversary of the American Association for Women Radiologists (AAWR), the association's accomplishments in promoting the careers of women radiologists were reviewed. Programs that feature opportunities for women to balance their careers and their personal lives have contributed greatly to promoting networking opportunities at national meetings. Highlights of women's accomplishments in national radiology organizations underline how far women have advanced in the specialty. Future initiatives for the organization center on increasing women's involvement in recruiting and mentoring other women in radiology.(c) RSNA, 2008
The disruptive professional case scenarios. - Academic radiology
This article examines certain critical aspects relating to the clinical competency of professionalism. A discussion is presented which is centered on an analysis of two fictional scenarios explored from the standpoint of a current and a former program director, an associate dean, a department chair, and a lawyer. These cases are followed by a series of questions and a legal discussion which can then be used for either individual study or group discussion.
Diagnostic Radiology Residency Review Committee program citations and how to avoid them. - Journal of the American College of Radiology : JACR
The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Review Committee gives citations when a program is out of compliance with the residency program requirements of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Several common and some serious citations can be avoided with proactive planning by residency program directors and chairs to be in compliance. These citations include a low American Board of Radiology pass rate, a low faculty/resident ratio, a lack of timely resident evaluations, a lack of written annual evaluations of faculty members, a lack of evaluation of program curriculum and rotation objectives, inadequate faculty teaching and supervision, inadequate faculty scholarly activity, and night floats that may interfere with education.
Suggestions for practice to accompany neonatal encephalopathy and cerebral palsy. - Obstetrics and gynecology
Based largely on the data in the 2003 The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists/American Academy of Pediatrics publication, Neonatal Encephalopathy and Cerebral Palsy, we offer 12 suggestions for practice. Familiarity with the publication and implementation of these suggested practices-by all personnel in an obstetric-neonatal unit-are important risk management techniques.
