Abstract

PURPOSE:

The aim of this study was to assess perceptions of the 2011 ACGME duty-hour guidelines among radiology residency directors and chief residents with regard to resident training, the practice of radiology, the quality of resident life, and faculty and staff costs.

METHODS:

An online survey was sent to radiology program directors and chief residents via the Association of University Radiologists.

RESULTS:

The response rates were 36.7% for program directors and 18.6% for chief residents. Responses were generally weakly negative from both radiology program directors and chief residents.

CONCLUSIONS:

Both radiology program directors and chief residents have negative perceptions of the effect of the 2011 ACGME duty-hour guidelines on radiology residency programs. There was significant disagreement between program directors and chief residents with regard to whether attending radiologists or residents would be more affected by the new guidelines.
