Description

The purpose of this session is to debate the current and future state of the general radiologist. With increasing radiologist specialization, what types of practices will need a general radiologist? The session will highlight some of the following issues – how successful is recruiting for a general radiologist, how many graduating residents go directly into practice as general radiologists, and what is the role of teleradiology in regard to general radiologists. In addition the role of a general radiologist in the VA, academia, small/rural and medium sized urban practices will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe how general radiology workload is being managed in various practice scenarios.
  2. Discuss why there are changes occurring in the performance of general radiology.
  3. Identify opportunities for radiologists seeking to work as general radiologists.
