49 ACR Resolution #52 Be It Resolved, that to address the medical workforce shortage that includes radiologists, radiation oncologists, imaging technologists, radiation therapists and medical physicists, the American College of Radiology and representatives from the major radiological societies form a task force to explore ways to increase the medical workforce.
50 What is being done? Media Campaign Recruitment Video Work Force survey Research Scholarships
51 Non Radiologists Sub Task Force on Human Resources The development and dissemination of a recruitment videotape to Junior High schools, High schools and Public Television stations.
52 Non Radiologists Sub Task Force on Human Resources The ASRT is developing a research project to find ways of improving productivity and job satisfaction.
53 Non Radiologists Sub Task Force on Human Resources The ASRT Education and Research Foundation has begun to develop minority scholarships to interest a significant population in the radiologic sciences as a career path.
54 Other areas to be Investigated Non Radiologists Sub Task Force on Human Resources Increasing the number of schools Increasing funding for existing schools Exploring the development of Technologist s Assistants and Radiologists PA s Development of web page on the ACR and RSNA web site describing careers for imaging technologists, radiation therapists, and medical physicists. Improving job satisfaction and job opportunities Increasing the number of students
55 Little things I should have said and done, I just never took the time
56 Non-monetary retention tools that radiologists can implement Very public reward and recognition programs Scholarships in exchange for years of service One-time big splash events (paegentry!!) Cover the cost of professional memberships, subscriptions, etc.
57 Conclusions Radiology equipment is really expensive If managed well, owning and operating radiology equipment can be very profitable The price paid for equipment varies wildly and can be irrational Radiology is critical to the financial health of hospitals
58 Conclusions Rad Tech staffing crisis exists!! Crisis impacts diagnostic radiology most (lowest wage area) Techs are working harder than they were 5 years ago ACR is exploring several options to solve the staffing problem
