This program is a wonderful opportunity for residents to be
exposed to the world of research. I learned a lot about my topic.
It is always nice to have a first author publication. I think the
experience of working on a manuscript will help me with future
academic pursuits. Working on an article has given me great insight
into the academic process and new respect for the publication
process. I developed a strong respect for radiology journals and
This program is a wonderful educational experience, and I
recommend it to all residents. Attending the RSNA meeting is an
outstanding experience in that it gives one the opportunity to
learn the latest developments in the field of radiology.
My suggestions to future residents participating in this program
* Enjoy RSNA.
* Have an agenda when you arrive at RSNA so that you might most
effectively make use of your time. The selection of presentations
is diverse, and it's best to know ahead of time which of these you
would like to attend.
* Work on a topic you are interested in.
I would strongly recommend this program to every
resident--especially those who want a deeper appreciation for the
world of academics.
