Another academic year is on the books, and with the start of the new academic year many fresh faces are showing up all around the healthcare field. So too, there are new officers for the North Carolina American College of Radiology (NCACR) Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) for the 2019-2020 academic year.
In 1976, Kathleen Gallagher Oxner, MS, MD, and I started our residencies in radiology at the University of North Carolina under the visionary leadership of chairman, James Scatliff, MD, FACR. It was just one year after the first female radiology resident, Valerie Mandell, MD, had entered the program. Kathleen and I represented 50 percent of the residency class — yep … a total of four residents.
