Yasha Gupta, MD, Chair of the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) Executive Committee, contributed this post.
Did you know that the ACR RFS is more than 8,000 members strong?
As we continue to grow and engage our residents, fellows and medical students, we remain committed to lending support every step of the way. Our trainee and medical student members are in great hands with the 2022–2023 ACR RFS Executive Committee (EC). I’m so thrilled to serve as Chair alongside an excellent group of #RadLeaders.
This year, the RFS EC will focus on building the bridge between ACR and RFS happenings, such as webinars, tweet chats, #ACR2023 and the Radiology Leadership Institute®, as well as creating new opportunities to support the needs of our trainees. Expanding mentorship for our RFS is a definite priority for us. We also want to engage our leaders of the future and collaborate with our Medical Student Subcommittee! This year, we also have the opportunity to sponsor a resolution to bring to the Council meeting, so we will be exploring issues that are pertinent and important to the RFS to help create positive change for trainees. Of course, we will continue our advocacy efforts, as this will affect us for the entirety of our careers. We are always open to hearing what trainees want to see from us, so please reach out to any member of the EC if you are interested in volunteering or want to see change at the leadership level!
