ACR Resident and Fellow Journal Club

The RFS facilitates 2 journal clubs, on the topics of Artificial Intelligence and Economics. These journal clubs let trainees interact directly with ACR leaders and gain their unique perspectives on their areas of expertise.

The journal club meets via conference call facilitated by a member of ACR leadership.


Upcoming Events

Tuesday, September 11 RFS Economics Journal Club - 8-9 PM EDT, "Women in Radiology."

Radiology has historically been a field of medicine most underrepresented by women. While the percentage of women in surgery has seen gains from 2003 to 2013 (from 40.7% to 45.9%), the figure for radiology has not changed substantially during this same time period (from 25.9% to 26.8%). The world of industry and business seem to have recognized the harm to competitiveness done in not taking action to correct for lapses in gender equity through the launching of various equity based initiatives. The discipline of radiology and imaging sciences is statistically lagging. Without thoughtful intervention to mitigate the lost opportunity of not fully leveraging the intellectual capital of women, our field will be at a strategic disadvantage in a rapidly changing and diverse healthcare environment.

Tapping into the insight of female leaders in the field in a Question / Answer format will give attendees a view into the historical pitfalls and future outlook for women in the field.
