JACR® Radiology-Specific COVID-19 Resources
The JACR have curated an incredible list of radiology-specific COVID-19 articles about the clinical/imaging presentation, practice readiness and response, and physician wellness. Check it out for the most up-to-date information.

Implementing Radiology-TEACHES
In this article, Dr. Willis described the successful multisite implementation of Radiology-TEACHES (Technology-Enhanced Appropriateness Criteria Home for Education Simulation), a platform to teach medical students about imaging appropriateness criteria, patient safety, and cost. The educational portal simulates physician imaging order entry system with clinical decision support and has the potential to fill an important gap in medical education curricula.

2019 ACR Commission on Human Resources Workforce Survey
The results of the ACR 2019 radiology practice leaders workforce survey is a good indicator of the current radiology job market which help those trainees deciding on which fellowship subspecialty to pursue. They found that the most common practicing subspecialties were body imaging, generalist, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology (general or non-neurological). Of the first-time hires post-training, only 7% had no fellowship training. The greatest numbers of hires are expected to be in breast imaging, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology.
