Vanderbilt University Medical Center Finds Success in Minority Resident Recruitment

Only 6.5 percent of practicing radiologists are underrepresented minorities (URMs) in medicine despite accounting for nearly 35 percent of the U.S. population. Of the 20 largest Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) training programs, radiology ranks 18th among trainees classified as underrepresented minorities.
There are several factors that result in fluctuations in ABR initial certification exam pass/fail rates from year to year.
Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA), a new way to satisfy MOC Part 3, started this past January for diagnostic radiology diplomates and those maintaining a DR subspecialty certificate. Since then, more than 860,000 OLA questions have been answered.
