Episode 11, “Addressing Radiology Staffing Challenges in a Post-COVID World; New Challenges Require Flexible Approaches,” by Christopher Tomlinson, Pallav Shah, and Josh Patrick. In this podcast we hear from a radiology department administrator and a radiologist about the variety of radiology staffing challenges affecting their institutions, how they are impacting their departments, and solutions they are implementing to address them.
Most of these challenges are a result of the systemic shortage of radiologists and the changes that were accelerated by the pandemic. These challenges include:
- Balancing radiologists needs for in-person, remote, and hybrid work requirements.
- Attracting and retaining radiology residents, fellows, and staff radiologists.
- Determining both on-site and remote work environments to keep radiologists healthy.
