We teach you how to become a private-practice radiologist -- really.
At the start of their post-graduate training, approximately three-fourths of radiology residents say they intend to pursue an academic career. However, a significant portion of residents enter private practice upon conclusion of their training making this rotation a valuable real-world experience.
Residents taking an optional rotation through the community radiology section will get a better understanding of what it's like to be a private-practice radiologist. Among other things, you will learn how to function independently, manage time better and learn how to interact with referring physicians and your practice partners as a peer. Generally this rotation lasts about four weeks.
