Conferences and In-Training Examination
During the first year, the residents are assigned the preparation and presentation of the Radiology-Pathology Correlation Conferences and Tumor Board Conferences. Morning conferences specifically for the radiology residents are provided by the Cottage Hospital Radiology staff and supplemented by a variety of hospital conferences, including diadactic lectures, tumor board, medical and surgical grand rounds, and subspecialty conferences in gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and pulmonary medicine, as well as critical-thinking skills conference.
Each year, residents take the In-Training Examination conducted by the American College of Radiology. This allows comparison of progress with other residents nationwide.
