What does a typical day look like for a M.D. that is in their residency in the field of radiology?
Im currently a senior in high school and plan to follow a pre med track next year when I begin my undergraduate studies. After med school I plan to take part in a radiology residency program. #doctor #physician #radiology #radiologist #hospital-and-health-care #healthcare
I will describe how it was when I was a resident.
I spent a little over 3 years in the program.
We rotated through various disciplines: GI (gastrointestinal), cardiovascular, chest (chest x-rays, would now include chest CT scans), pediatrics, mammography, bones, etc.
You would spend your entire day in one particular field of endeavor.
I imagine residency programs are somewhat similar now in that regard.
But add CT and MRI (including MRI of the breast) and PET scanning.
Also interventional radiology.
I think most radiology residency programs are now 4 years.
I recommend you connect with a Radiologist in the field to learn more about their day-to-day responsibilities.
Best of luck with your education, professional, and personal endeavors!
