Results of a National Radiology Attending Physician Survey: The Effects of In-House Late and Overnight Attending Coverage on Radiology Resident Training [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Over the past 10 years, there has been increased attending-level image interpretation during what has typically been considered the on-call period. The purpose of this study is to survey radiology attending physicians and assess their perceptions about how the presence of radiology attending physicians during the on-call period affects patient care and resident education. Two hundred eighty-eight radiology attendings completed the online survey. 70% believe that after hours final reads by radiology attendings improves patient care. 56% believe that this additional attending presence has a negative impact on the ability of graduating residents to efficiently interpret studies independently. A majority of radiology attending physicians in this study believe that increased in-house radiology attending coverage is harming resident training across the United States, yet also believe this attending presence is important for patient care. Additional studies are needed to quantify and further evaluate this effect, and develop strategies to address potential negative impacts on radiology resident education.
