Leadership Development
We encourage our residents to develop strong leadership skills and gain an understanding of healthcare economics through the ACR’s Radiology Leadership Initiative Resident Milestones Program. The curriculum was developed by the ACR and blends the passive learning facilitated by articles and videos with active and collaborative learning to reinforce key concepts and provide residents with essential healthcare systems training.
