Dr. Beauchamp’s Top 5 Ways to Improve and Shape Radiology
1. Strengthen your contribution to health care
by communicating with and supporting fellow
radiologists and referring physicians. Ask: What
more can I do to bring value to my organization and
ultimately to the betterment of health care?
2. Have your eye on emerging technologies and trends in
radiology. Ask: How can I get more involved?
3. Get involved in ARRS and stay involved.
4. Mentor young radiologists and create leadership
opportunities for them. Pay it forward.
5. Listen to and be there for your colleagues. Burnout is
a real thing. If we can’t be there for one another, how
can we be there for our patients?
