Residents in the Radiology Residency Program at Bryn Mawr Hospital are
given protected time daily free from clinical responsibilities 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 resident driven and consists of
didactic and case presentation lectures taken from established
radiology texts and resources. The Noon conference is attending
led, usually in a didactic or “hot-seat” format. Professors from
outside institutions come approximately nine times per 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 specialties 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 institution.
