Radiology Job Market
"Our field faces a multitude of threats: reduced reimbursement, self-referral, radiation safety issues, and a heightened awareness by all payors that we are an important component of healthcare costs. But in the face of our recent growth in demand, our supply is woefully inadequate, leaving us quite vulnerable. While some individuals may appreciate the relative shortage because it results in short-term higher salaries and wages, it may be the proverbial battle success in a lost war. We will have failed as a specialty if we allow a shortage of our own making to lead to our diminution. As it takes at least six years from "match day" to train a radiologist, action must happen soon."
