Speed Mentoring

The UMass Chan Student Radiology Interest Group (RIG) coordinated a Speed Mentoring session with the Radiology Residents. Topics included IR, advice for applying to radiology residency, what it's like to be a radiology resident, what a career in radiology looks like, research, radiology sub-specialties, and electives available at UMass. Medical students Victoria Podsiadlo and Lyndia Personnat helped organize the event. Students cycled through each topic spending about 10 minutes at each table.
