Unique Opportunities

2016-2017 Leadership Track Inaugural Resident, Catherine Phillips 2016-2017 Leadership Track Inaugural Resident, Catherine Phillips
The BWH Radiology Resident Leadership Tract was designed to give interested residents an opportunity to complement and extend their diagnostic education with tangible leadership skills and experiences. Together with the support from my mentor Stacy Smith, I designed a curriculum that provides the opportunity for residents to practice negotiation skills, acquire perspective on the industry of radiology, and become agents of change in their community. Highlights of this pathway included participating in the the Radiology Leadership Institute Leadership Summit (with a scholarship from the Massachusetts Radiological Society), attending the Massachusetts Radiological Society Leadership Symposium, being selected to attend the Harvard Macy Program for Future Clinical Educators (with a full merit based scholarship), and taking advantage of the Radiological Society of North America’s leadership pathway courses offered at the society’s annual meeting in Chicago, IL. Additionally, I was awarded both the Level 1 Certificate of Leadership Fundamentals and Level 2 Certificate of Leadership Proficiency from the Radiology Leadership Institute.


2016-2017 Educator Track Participant, Shanna Matalon 2016-2017 Educator Track Participant, Shanna Matalon
With the support of the educational leadership, I was been given the opportunity to develop this track from the ground up, as well as to explore various sides of medical education, including educational research and educational leadership. Some of the highlights of my experience completing this track include attending the Harvard Macy Program for Future Clinician Educators, a 3-day intensive program to enhance skills and scholarship in medical education, being selected as the ACR Valerie P. Jackson Education Fellowship, winning the 3rd place trainee prize at the 2017 AUR on an educational research project conducted with my co-resident, Oren Johnson, and creating a four-hour, interactive abdominal tutorial session for the Harvard Medical School radiology clerkship with Raquel Alencar from the abdominal division. I experienced teaching at multiple levels, including monthly teaching commitments with the medical students on their radiology clerkship, three sessions teaching residents and/or fellows and a single session teaching ~100 PA students at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS).

Rotation at ABC
Tatiana Kelil recently completed an internship at  ABC headquarters in NYC; this internship provides a unique opportunity for residents to gain exposure to and acquire basic competencies in medical journalism . The experience involves critically analyzing journal articles and vetting accuracy of medical content for the news, interviewing medical experts and writing medical news stories for ABCNews.com and attending daily meetings with the production teams from World News, GMA, and ABCNews.com. The rotation also teaches residents how to use social media to improve health literacy and spread public health messages.

Congressional visit advocating for imaging research funding at Capitol Hill, Washington DC
Tatiana Kelil traveled to Capitol Hill in Washington DC with Dr. Steven Seltzer( former chairman of radiology) on April 12, 2016 and met with different senators and house representatives. The purpose of the trip was to advocate for research funding and ensure members of congress involved in policy making and funding decisions understand the importance of research in imaging. To this end we demonstrated how some innovations in imaging such as 3D printing and Virtual reality can be used for patient care.

Dr. Vardan Amirbekian 
He won the 2008 RSNA Trainee Research Award / Prize. He was give this award for his work investigating magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of human aortic atherosclerosis using a molecularly targeted MRI contrast agent. The contrast agent was based on gadolinium and designed to target macrophages, which are cells thought to play an important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic plaque. Atherosclerosis is the leading cause death in industrialized nations and it is the leading cause of heart disease, myocardial infarction, stroke and peripheral vascular disease. Currently we do not have imaging techniques that can directly assess atherosclerosis reliably.
The 2007 RSNA Trainee Research Prize was awarded to Dr Vardan Amirbekian for his work entitled Molecular MRI of Atherosclerosis Using P947 and Co-Localization of Fluorescent Europium-P947 with Matrix Metalloproteinases in Atherosclerotic Plaques.
