The Resident Roentgen File, June 2021

Volume 1, Issue 3: June 2021

A new monthly newsletter specifically for radiology residents, The Resident Roentgen File curates multimedia educational resources from our vast portfolio of benefits to help ARRS Resident Members prepare for exams, fellowship, and beyond.

One month removed from virtually hosting oral board certification exams in medical physics, interventional radiology, and radiation oncology, the American Board or Radiology (ABR) has announced “all computer-based and oral exams for 2022 will be remote.”

According to the 2022 dates for computer-based exams posted on the ABR’s website, the Radioisotope Safety Exam for both diagnostic and interventional radiologists is scheduled for Tuesday, January 10, 2022, as is the nuclear radiology subspecialty exam.

Dates have not yet been confirmed for the Oral Certifying Exams in interventional and diagnostic radiology, nor in medical physics and radiation oncology.

Also unconfirmed right now? Whether or not the ABR will continue remote administration of any exam—computer-based or oral—into 2023.

ABR Resources from ARRS

First presented by ABR’s own stakeholders during the 2021 ARRS Virtual Annual Meeting, we have since published the following four video presentations on our Roentgen University portal:
