December 2023 Power Hour Webinar – Using a Change Management Framework to Address Gaps in Residency Training

Moderators: Jennifer E. Nathan, MD, Robert S. Pyatt, Jr, MD, FACR

Faculty: Catherine Everett, MD, MBA, FACR, Daniel Rodgers, MD, Mary Scanlon, MD, FACR, Daniel DePietro, MD

Description: The RLI has teamed up with the Association of Program Directors in Radiology (APDR) to showcase change management using the 2023 recommendations made by the APDR Task Force on Procedural Competency of Graduating Diagnostic Radiology Residents. We have lined up an excellent panel of experts—Drs. Dan DePietro, Catherine Everett, Dan Rodgers, and Mary Scanlon—to discuss the problem (mismatch between the procedural skillset of graduating radiology residents and workforce needs), how the task force approached this issue and the APDR recommendation, using change management lens, for improving our ability to deliver high value diagnostic and interventional services to the communities that need it most.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the APDR recommendations and how these recommendations can be shared with stakeholders to garner buy-in and support for program changes.
  • Recognize the change management steps outlined by the University of Pennsylvania to incorporate changes to implement APDR recommendations in their program.
  • Identify some tools, including new modules and the ACGME procedural log available to programs to aid in training and success metrics.
