Teleradiology, a perfect fit for radiologists after residency—whether they pursue a fellowship or not

Originally published by Scott Baginski, MD on Radiology Business

Radiologists have an important choice to make at the beginning of their careers: do they want to start a fellowship after their residency or immediately join a radiology practice?

Both options can be incredibly rewarding for a young radiologist. And the good news is, there’s no wrong answer.

Radiologists often choose to continue their training after their residency and pursue a one-or two-year subspecialty fellowship. On the other hand, some may find that they would rather skip the fellowship and join a practice right away. And that’s great too! You don’t have to be fellowship-trained by any means to have a long, successful career in radiology. Some of the happiest, most successful radiologists I know are general radiologists.
