Resident Training in the Digital Age
In an article published in Radiographics. 2013 Aug 29. [Epub ahead of print] Authorsn discuss a vital issue which probably has even more relevance for a country like ours where radiology training is non-uniform and less focus is on report writing skills.
Authors Gorniak et al mention "During their radiology residency, trainees must learn multiple facets of radiology practice, including the writing of radiology reports. An important factor in the trainee’s development of reporting skills is feedback from the attending radiologist on the trainee’s preliminary reports. As radiology department workloads have increased and stricter limitations have been imposed on trainee work hours, less time is available for attending radiologists and trainees to perform a joint retrospective review of radiology reports. To compensate, the authors have developed a Web-based dashboard that provides trainees with case-specific feedback about their reports."
