Another Successful Resident Achievements Day 

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

The Second Residents Achievements Day was held on 16th June in the pleasant surroundings of Snell Hall at the St. James Cathedral Centre. The day was focused on presentations by the PGY4s as part of their graduating requirements. 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 'Analysis of radiology reports using Natural Language Processing to identify Pathognomonic and Acute Pathologies for Medical Imaging Teaching', to 'Effects of circle of Willis Anatomic Variations on Angiographic and Clinical Outcomes of Coiled Anterior Communicating Artery Aneurysms'  and included 'Radiology Perception and Preferences of Canadian Patients in an After-hours Acute Care Setting'. The winner of the residents' research prize for best presentation was Dr. John Conklin for his talk entitled 'A Simplified Model for Intravoxel Incoherent Motion Perfusion Imaging of the Brain'. 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. Mark Cicero for his work entitled 'Training and validating a deep convolutional neural network for computer aided detection and classification of abnormalities on frontal chest radiographs’.

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 2nd Resident Achievements Day, the venue provided a wonderful opportunity for everyone to reflect on individual, group and Program successes throughout the Academic Year.

This year, we invited Professor Raymond Carlberg to deliver a keynote address at the Dinner. Professor Carlberg is Professor and Chair of the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto. He delivered a fascinating talk about ‘Diagnosing Dark Matter’—a very elusive diagnosis.RAD4.jpg

We added a number of new Awards to this year’s Awards ceremony, including the Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award, the Outstanding Fellow Mentor–Teacher Award, the PGY-1 Clinical Performance Award, and the Resident Ambassador Award.  The majority of our Awards were peer-to-peer awards, with nominations/voting from the Resident Body only.

Although the evening celebrated the achievements of the entire Residency Program, the highlight was the celebration of our graduating PGY5 Residents, who entertained us with their clever renditions of their personal biographies.RAD5.jpg

The evening’s cheer continued beyond the dinner program at the Residents’ After Party, held at Parcae, a lounge/bar in the Templar Hotel.
