Abstract

Mentor-mentee relationships within radiology residencies can add significant value to a resident's overall experience. Studies demonstrate that mentorship programs can increase satisfaction for residents and faculty alike by reducing stress, easing career related decisions, increasing involvement with research, improving teaching and communication skills, and finally increasing leadership roles. In a survey of radiology program directors, 85% of program directors find such a program beneficial but only 57% have a formal program in place. Totally, 42% of program directors believe a structured mentorship program is necessary. Studies have also shown that female residents prefer female mentors. Alumni serve as an ideal group for resident mentorship as they do not face the pressures of internal faculty. No study to date in diagnostic radiology literature uses an alumni network in establishing a formal mentorship program. The objective of this study is to implement a formal mentorship program within an academic affiliated radiology residency by using program alumni and internal attending physicians for potentially increasing faculty engagement, improving resident morale, research opportunities, and networking for fellowship and job opportunities.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 February 2018.
All research outputs
#8,645,440
of 13,789,144 outputs
Outputs from Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology
#128
of 194 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#162,380
of 272,054 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current Problems in Diagnostic Radiology
#4
of 7 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,789,144 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 194 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.9. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 272,054 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 7 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
