Abstract

Rationale and Objectives. The American Association of Academic Chief Residents in Radiology (A(3)CR(2)) annually surveys radiology residency programson issues related to training. The objective is to highlight national similarities, differences, and trends to help programs establish standards and improve residency training. Materials and Methods. Questionnaires were mailed to 180 accredited diagnostic radiology residency training programs in the United States. The surveycovered the usual general topics and more specific topics considered every4 years; for 2000 the latter were on-call issues and the chief residency year. Results. Completed surveys were returned from 63 programs (35%). Importantfindings included increased caseload and call commitments, especially for smaller programs. Resident salaries appear to have increased more than the consumer price index. Nonemergent after-hour coverage and teleradiology arenow a large part of the resident work practice. Women continue to be underrepresented, with a trend downward. Chief residents are more involved in organizing preparation for board examinations and have greater office facilities and more administrative duties. Conclusion. This survey provided useful insights. All levels of residency face increased workloads. On-call hours have not changed, but the work has intensified and the use of teleradiology has increased. Many programs have adopted a "night-float" system, and nonemergent after-hours coverage shouldbe considered in any program evaluation. Continued vigilance and sustainedefforts are required to ensure that radiology is considered as a specialtyby both men and women. With increased demands on attending physicians' time, chief residents may need to take on more administrative responsibilities.
