The Department of Radiology hosted its 13th annual Resident Research Day on May 15 to recognize UW’s hard-working residents and learn more about their meaningful research completed during the academic year.
Radiology Resident Research Day is “is an exciting event at the conclusion of each academic year where the department celebrates… our residents’ projects,” according to Dr. David Kim. Residents have most likely presented the research before at conferences or lectures, but this gathering is an important way for residents to give faculty and their mentors an update on what they have been working on throughout the year.
Not only do faculty members get to see residents’ work, but it lets younger residents see what type of research is being done, according to Radiology Graduate Medical Education Coordinator Amy Romandine. “Faculty from other departments also like to see what radiology as a subspecialty is doing,” she said, and noted the possibility to increase an interest in cross-departmental research.
The presentations are critically reviewed by a panel of judges, and one presentation receives a prize at the resident graduation dinner on June 15 at the Pyle Center. This year’s winner was Dr. Eniola Obadina’s presentation entitled, “Online support: Impact on anxiety patients who experience an abnormal screening mammogram.”
Romandine notes that 2012-2013 was the first year that all presentations have been posted electronically for those in the department to peruse at their leisure. To view Resident Research Day presentations, visit the Lecture Archive section of the Department of Radiology Intranet.
