Assessing First Year Radiology Resident Competence Pre-call: Development and Implementation of a Computer-based Exam before and after the 12 Month Training Requirement
Academic Radiology, 05/21/2012
Khan R et al. – An emergency radiology examination was established to aid in the assessment of first–year radiology residents’ competency prior to starting call, which has become a permanent part of the first–year curriculum. Over 4 years, all first–year residents were ultimately judged ready to start call. Of the variables assessed, only resident year showed a significant difference in scoring parameters. In particular, length of training prior to taking call showed no significant difference. Areas of weakness were identified for further study.
