Abstract

Radiology trainees devote 5 to 7 years after medical school to gain the knowledge and skills necessary for independent radiology practice. The length and intensity of this training can negatively impact residents’ well-being in a variety of ways, ultimately affecting their sleep, exercise, family interactions, religious activities, and major life events. Declining resident well-being often contributes to burnout, manifesting as emotional exhaustion, feelings of depersonalization, and lack of personal accomplishment. Program directors can optimize the learning environment for their trainees and make substantial advances along this vital issue by making resident wellness a high priority.
