"These and other early successes have yielded increasing levels of institutional support with the establishment of formal offices, departments, and centers of medical education research. These centers began as and continue to be diverse in structure, size, and purpose . Examples of highly functioning units are described in a special issue of Academic Medicine, published in 2004. "
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In 1990, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) changed the requirements for diagnostic radiology
residency to require residents to have 6 months of radiology training prior to taking independent call. In 2007, the requirements
were again revised, requiring residents to have 12 months of radiology training prior to taking independent call (Rumack 2007).
The change was justified as follows: during 6 months of training, residents cannot be exposed to standard 4-week rotations
in all subspecialty areas of radiology, and residents are more accurate in formulating preliminary interpretations if they
have 12 months rather than 6 months of exposure to the specialty. Resident results in the American College of Radiology in-service
examination, which show a steady increase in scores with each year of training, were used to justify the latter. Furthermore,
other medical specialties required constant supervision for first-year residents by more senior residents or in-house supervision
of residents by faculty members.
