Another Successful Resident Achievements Day 

A Message from Departmental Chair, Dr. Alan MoodyRAD1.jpg

The Residents Achievements Day was held on June 15th in the pleasant surroundings of Snell Hall at the St. James Cathedral Centre. The day was focused on presentations by PGY4s, PGY5s and this year included our PGY7 Nuclear Medicine graduate Dr. Adam Hart. Each presentation ran for 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. Pleasingly the talks generated much interest and often the discussion had to be curtailed despite more questions in order to keep on time. The titles varied from ''Intermeatal Distance and Tumor Size as Predictors of Mass Effect by Acoustic Neuromas on the Brainstem", to "3D Quantitative Ultrasound Imaging for Assessing Surgical Margins in Breast Conservation Therapy: A Proof of Concept Study'' and included "Quantifying the Radiation Reduction using 80 kVp and 100 kVp protocols for CT Pulmonary Angiography (CTPA)"and "Age-Related Variation in the Atlanto-Dental Interval: Redefining Normal Reference Values. The winner of the residents' researchprize for best presentation was Dr. Kirsteen Burton for her talk entitled "Risk of early onset breast cancer among women exposed to thoracic CT in pregnancy or early postpartum".RAD2.jpg

During the lunch period there was an opportunity to view poster presentations displayed in the Library. The prize for best poster went to Dr. Adam Dmytriw for his work entitled "Gamma Knife radiosurgery for the treatment of intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas'

A Message from Dr. Eric BartlettRAD3.jpg

I would like to thank everyone for making the Graduation Dinner and Celebration such a successful and special evening for the Residency Program!  As the evening portion of the 3rd Annual Resident Achievements Day, the dinner and celebration provided a wonderful opportunity for everyone to reflect on the individual, group and Program successes throughout the Academic Year.

This year, we invited Professor TA Loeffler to deliver a keynote address at the Dinner. Professor Loeffler is Chair in Teaching and Learning, School of Human Kinetics & Recreation, Memorial University of Newfoundland, and has made several attempts to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. She delivered an inspirational talk, “Celebrating the Summits and Learning from the Valley: Professional Lessons from the Mountain and Beyond”.

Although the evening celebrated the achievements of the entire Residency Program, the highlight was the celebration of our graduating PGY5 Residents!

The evening’s cheer continued beyond the dinner program at the Residents’ After Party, held at OMAW Restaurant..
