Radiologists Desire More Work

There’s no shortage of radiologists in the employment market today, and radiologists want more work, a new study suggests. The findings appear in the March issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Using anonymous data from the American College of Radiology’s 2007 Survey of Diagnostic Radiologists, researchers from the American College of Radiology (ACR), Yale, Johns Hopkins, and the University of California at San Francisco looked at factors such as type and size of practice, radiology subspecialty, and geographic region. They also looked at probable links between desired workload change and characteristics of radiologists and the practices where they worked. The researchers compared responses to those in the ACR’s 2003 Survey of Radiologists.

Results showed the desired workload change increased by about 3 percent. Back in 2003, radiologists desired no signficant change in workload. The overall balance between supply and demand of radiologists also tipped toward a surplus. “According to our measure, we judge there was a close balance in 2003, but a 3 percent surplus in 2007,” the authors wrote in the study. They noted that the employment market usually seems to self-correct over a few years.
