Residents in the Radiology Residency Program at Bryn Mawr Hospital are
given protected time free from clinical responsibilities twice daily to
attend educational conferences and lectures in the department. These
constitute a combination of didactic lectures, interactive case
presentations, “hot-seat” style case conferences, and visiting professor
series. Multidisciplinary conferences are held regularly and our
residents are encouraged to attend and participate.
Conferences are held twice daily at 7:30 am and Noon. The first six
weeks of conferences are dedicated to introductory lectures during July
and August which provides the incoming first year radiology residents a
basic framework for future learning. The remaining 48 weeks of the year,
the conference schedule follows a designated organ-system based
curriculum that covers the eleven major topics in diagnostic radiology.
The goals of our conference curriculum are:
To establish a rigorous organ system based approach to resident
conference education that will provide consistent quality
education that can be reproduced year after year.
To expose all resident to a broad variety of cases covering the
whole spectrum of radiology early in their training, creating
more rounded radiology residents able to generate robust
To foster continued systemic curriculum improvement that will
allow consistent and focused studying and foster deep learning.
The morning conference is either interdisciplinary or resident driven
and consists of didactic and case presentation lectures taken from
established radiology texts and resources. The Noon conference is
attending led, either in a didactic or “hot-seat” format.
Professors from outside institutions are invited approximately nine
times each year and provide supplemental education in their
subspecialties, typically addressing current topics in diagnostic
radiology. Senior residents are also given Board Review conferences by
attending radiologists in their respective subspecialties to assist in
preparation for the American Board of Radiology examinations.
A sample of a monthly conference schedule can be seen below:
Research is an integral part of the program, and residents complete at
least one research project during their residency. Publication and/or
presentation of the project at a scientific meeting is strongly
encouraged. If a resident presents at a national meeting, expenses are
paid by the program. Guidance is provided by departmental faculty or the
resident may choose to do a project with a radiologist from another
