The Journey Is Hard, Don’t Get Lost in the First Leg!

Responsibilities. Self-doubt. Knowledge gaps. No peer group for support. No direct access to experts. Relentless distractions. Confusion about resources. Fear of failure.

Radiology Residents face these struggles every day. These struggles can lead to unfocused action, wasted resources, poor decision-making, and feelings of overwhelm. Faced with these struggles, it’s no wonder why so many residents fall short of achieving their dreams.

Radiology is a vast field. As radiology residents, most of us waste, at least a year or sometimes two years figuring out things! There is so much to learn and there is so much to figure out! So many questions and no credible sources of information. We learned the hard way by wasting our time and making mistakes.

Introducing Head Start Radiology

Luckily you do not have to waste your time and energy! We have put together all the information that you need to know at the start of your career to plan it better and take informed decisions.We will share actionable tips to counter common problems that you face as early career residents.

We have improved the content in the second edition after receiving feedback from the first cohort of participants. The first part of the talk will focus on important resources such as what books to read and the second part will focus on how to make the most of your residency.

Read What Our Previous Attendees Have To Say [ UNEDITED]

The session did go on for a bit too long but as a final year Resident I can definitely say that these things are what are really important and as you said, are not said by anybody else. Nobody really talks about how different radiology is when you’re joining fresh from house surgeoncy and part of that I think is because of how little exposure we get to radiology during internship. I think the points made were excellent. The points on inter department communication and better efficiency are crucial things which residents should know when they start their night duties and I’m glad someone talks about them as in my department, I learnt these things after months and months of experience and even more failures. I find this especially true for my junior batches who had to bear the brunt of COVID duties and had no chances to do routine ultrasound Scans or have any regular academics. I hope you guys will make it even better for the next course so that the newer batches can benefit from it as well!

Dr. Monish G K, Radiology Resident, India

Extremely enlightening. Covered almost everything in detail. Was more of a life lesson for a resident. Kudos! As a suggestion I’d like to know what the quantifiable targets are for a first-year resident – when there is minimal academic guidance, how can a resident objectively assess how they’re progressing. For eg I might be doing cases and reading stuffs and getting better at work but how do I know if academically I’m progressing in the right direction? Suggesting a few checkpoints like clear basic anatomy by 6months, or read a starter book in a month could give a direction to move.Some suggestion based on that idea might be helpful for unsupervised residents who are forced to reinvent the wheel.

Dr. Vishnu , Radiology Resident, India

This was an amazing session sir, answered most of my questions especially the basic idea covering what to do in different years of residency and after residency. I had this fomo about writing different exams and attending various conferences, but you cleared it up. And also the point to focus more on family, which frankly no one tells us to.

Dr. Iman Mohammed, Radiology Resident, India

This webinar was fantastic and very informative. The content told comes with alot of experience and nobody ever tells you this stuff. Yes a quiet lenghty but every second was worth it. 💯

Dr. Simran Randhawa, Radiology Resident, India

I found the session useful especially with respect to the “get to do” approach instead of the “have to do” one. Also being a first year resident the breakdown of year wise study material/books would go a long way in my residency.
