*Excerpt from the ACR YPS e-News (February 2, 2021):
“We successfully launched the inaugural ACR YPS Webinar Series, comprised of timely topics affecting young radiologists in this country. So far, we have hosted the YPS-RFS-AAWR Webinar: Job Hunting During an Economic Crisis, the YPS-Radiology Leadership

Institute®  Webinar: Practice Leadership During COVID-19, and the YPS-JACR®  Webinar: Pandemic Impact on Private Practice Recruitment: 2020 and Beyond. In case you missed these, you can watch the recordings here.

The YPS has also partnered with Cody R. Quirk, MD, and podcast (@HounsfieldPod ) to feature bite-sized, meaningful, relevant, and honest discussions about topics affecting young radiologists in this country. So far, the collaboration has been very successful. Recent episodes include ABR, Core Exam, and MOC and Private Equity in Radiology. Don’t miss listening to these incredibly informative episodes, perfect for your commute to and from work, at bit.ly/HounsfieldUnit .”
