In the current era of Covid and the limitations on clinical shadowing and experience, what advice would you have for getting more exposure to IR for medical students?
Maureen Kohi, MD
44:12
In terms of getting more IR exposure... Can you look internally or in areas that are close to you?
Maureen Kohi, MD
44:42
The other thing is to join Webinars and learn what IRs do. The ECS or the RFS or the Angioclubs from SIR can help expose you to IR

Hi everyone! I’m Cynthia, IR research trainee at Mayo Clinic FL. Thank you for taking your time to tell us about your experiences.

Great advice!! Often times, we have medical students stick around for the case when their patients come down for the procedure. Even when they are on IM, ICU, FM etc. This is a great way to get exposure and meet people
Ava Star M.D.
54:41
I agree. And also IR’s are super nice and friendly! =)
Caroline Corban
54:58
Could the panelists speak to their time in leadership roles, any challenges you encountered, and give advice on making leadership a part of your career?
Maureen Kohi, MD
54:58
I second what Ava said!
Olga Brook
58:15
leadership - great question! IR makes you uniquely qualified for that!
Aneesa Majid, MD
01:00:50
You will find that there are many IR in leadership positions bc IRs are doers and people who solve problems
Kaylie Cullison

As an MD/PhD student, I am interested in a career as a physician scientist. Do any of the panelists have experience with research in their careers or can speak to physician scientist careers within IR?
Susan Shamimi-Noori
01:05:11
if you are interested in a career as a physician scientist, there are a bunch of programs that have dedicated research tracks. something to look into. you can definitely be a physician scientist on IR, we have awesome IRs doing this and helping push the field forward!
Olga Brook

IR helps to build leadership abilities - you have to manage your team, patient, keep your cool, be respectful of everyone and guide your team to help the patient
Natosha Monfore, DO

I am in a hybrid private practice group with a radiology residency so I get the benefits of being with residents teaching, giving lectures etc. But I also don't have some of the academic pressures of publishing. I have 2 research projects going with medical students at this time. I also have the benefits of private practice
Kaylie Cullison
01:10:13
That’s good to know, thanks! I feel like I have always been pushed into academic medicine because of my interest in research, so it’s nice to know that you can still do research in private practice. Great insight.
Susan Shamimi-Noori
01:10:27
Academics is also versatile. I’m in academics but have no research requirements as I’m on a teaching tract. I like research, so I do occasion work on research projects.
