Hello everyone, I am interested with radiology talaga, pero I want muna to read a book in radiology before applying for training. Some radiologist recommends the Essentials of Diagnostic Radiology. Am I doing the right move? Kasi feeling ko hindi ako masyadong expose sa radiology kaya need ko mag-basa muna, pero yun pa rin ang gusto ko, coz if ever, gusto ko rin interventional rad.

Help me... Thank you

Hi! I'm interested in training in Davao City in the field of Radiology. Although I'm from Batangas, I had my Internship in Dumaguete City and worked as Ship Physician based in Cebu so I can speak and write in Cebuano kaya medyo madali na ko maka-adjust dun. Dili na mabaligya sa Bangkerohan, hehehe.

I heard Davao Doctors and San Pedro Hospitals are good private hospitals with modern facilities at par with those found in most Metro Manila hospitals. And Davao Medical Center is such a big hospital, although government-run.

Can anyone please give me an idea on the following:
1. Salaries of 1st yr Res in the three hospitals
2. Toxicity level, e.g. attitude of consultants, seniority rule among residents, patient load, etc.
3. Cost of living in Davao City

I will appreciate very much if you can give me info. Treat ko kayo McDo pag nagkita tayo, hehehe. B)

hello,
i graduated from davao but about to start residency in manila this january. i'm not that exact with the figures but the salary in davao's private hospitals are the highest--most probably the highest in the country. they already range from 12-16T. they did that over the past three years because of the declining number of applicants. san pedro hosp has had no training in surg for 3-4 yrs now. yung toxicity i think is the same anywhere-we have our share of terror consultants. quality of life-- davao i think has the best quality among the 3 metropolitan areas. night life,food, nature, city amenities all at affordable rates. if i can get a number among some acquaintences in the hospitals i'll post the numbers.
kyuks

Thanks, Kyuks...

I inquired at Davao Doctors Radio Dept and the resident MD told me that they might have a slot by May 2006. I heard that the residency training in that hospital is good? Being an "insider", any advise? Thanks again....

By the way, where are you training this January? What specialty?

RON,

Paul & Juhl's is really the "bible" of Radiology... Andun na lahat ng basic info, especially sa New Edition. 7th na yata yun. Pero medyo makapal siya and reading it without reinforcement (lectures, seeing the actual films and the actual procedures) would be useless (in my experience, ha?)... Either di mo siya matapos basahin kasi tatamarin ka na sa pagbabasa na wala namang "hands-on" or pwede rin naman matapos mo siya pero para ka lang nagbasa ng pocketbook... Mahirap ma-retain without practice.

I suggest, kung gusto mo lang ma-boost ang interest mo sa field, buy Radiology Secrets or start with Radiologic Anatomy NMS... Yun muna maliliit na Radio books kasi concise ang information dun. Dun din usually kumukuha ng exams during your pre-res.

Anyway, when you start Radio training, mas masarap magbasa when everyone of you (in the department) are thinking the same and you have one common goal... And your peers can also teach you what part of the very thick books you should concentrate.

Again, it is still best to read the thick books rather than the "summarized/outlined" ones when you are still starting. But for pre-res, go for Radiology Secrets and Radio Anatomy NMS... You can never go wrong. Pag start mo na training, bitawan mo na sila o itago sa baul and read your Paul and Juhl's.

Ciao!

rockwin,
people here have two choices when they want to train in a private setting. davao doc--the main complain is the nuances of being iso certified. talagang the patient is boss. but when you are in radio i think there would not be that much patient interaction. san pedro hosp-residents say it is more relaxed-the atmoshere that is- as compared to davao doctors(DDH). DDH is a little more advanced. but the consultant staff is basically the same for both. i feel that there is not that much difference training in either bec the it is the same group of doctors making the rounds of both hosps.

Hello, I've been encouraged by a friend to apply in radiology. I've never thought i would enter this specialty one day pero now i'm seriously thinking about it. Sabi nga nila, not toxic, ofc hours, social life, no need to establish own clinic after residency... I've heard about the pro's... One thing lang nga no patient interaction. Pero can anyone give their opinions about this specialty? please help! kasi major life decision....

Its all up to you jiffy! Depende kung ano ang gusto mo. Remember this is a crossroad which would greatly affect your life. Weigh everything in terms of pros and cons.If you need to decide in a jiffy, do a checklist. What are your other options ba? From your post, it seems that you would like a bit more of a patient interaction. Sa radiology naman may patient interaction din, specifically in the field of Interventional radiology. Sometimes din, you can reduce an intussusception patient just by doing a radiologic study...My point is, choices are made with your heart but decisions are made with your gut. It helps a great deal to pray a lot. Good Luck!

Anybody from Makati Med? Is it true that they have CT/MRI/Interventional fellowship for 1.5 years? Can someone comment on the program, ok naman ang machines nila, I think they have 64 slice CT and a 1.5 Tesla MRI plus an angio suite. Tagal kasi ng interventional sa St Lukes 2 years! Thanks.

Thanks so much for the information! ( I'm off to look for books later, LOL)
I just passed the medical boards and radiology has been one of the top three choices for me since Internship.

Unfortunately, everyone seems to be discouraging me. my folks still want me to go into IM or Surgery, (kahit dermatology na lang daw wag lang mag-Radio!) My friends were surprised on my decision to enter radiology, mag- IM na lang daw me. Even my mentors were commenting on my choice. Why the hate towards the profession?

Haay, Kaya ngayon I'm having doubts on what to take. I know cliche na yung "listen to your heart" and all that stuff but It's really hard to decide what's good for you when everybody keeps on pointing out the negative side to the profession.

Anyway, It still is my priority though. regardless of what they say, I just hope I'm in the right path.

Tsaka po, A few more questions, Saan pong hospital maganda mag-training for radiology? I feel like I'm making this decision alone. I haven't even talked my folks into it. hehe

This thread has been very helpful to me.

Thanks : )

Radiology is one of the most competitive residency in the US (good lifestyle and income). However, in the Philippines there might be a lot of budget cutting and limited positions in hospitals. It is a hospital-based field and you cannot just hang your practice in a corner store. It might work out if you will go to subspecialization (Neuroradiology) or even Ultrasonography/Mammography (where you can open your own radiology center).

You can also check the radiology program at the Philippine Heart Centre.
They also have fellowship in Interventional Radiology.

SA PHC ko lang nakita ang awa ko sa Interventional Radiology, in my school they were so revered (siguro kasi walang interventional cardio samin), pero sa heart center, lahat ng dapat sakop nila, ginagawa ng interventional cardio. No offense to cardio peeps but it is historically only the coronaries ang kanilang territory, but during my rotation there I watched them do carotids, thoraric and abdominal aorta, renal and visceral arteries pati nga peripheral tinitira pa, circle of willis nalang ang natira sa rads people.

I dunno why this is a trend, pelvic ultrasound halos hawak na ng OB, and I even hear Ob people brag they are much better than radiologist doing it.

Why is radiology not fighting for its turf! They are the one who perfected this modalities tapos agagawin lang na walang kalaban laban.

I think the future in radiology is going to be less invasive. Ngayon all angiographies, can be done by CT and MRI pati coronaries. As the machines and technology get better unti unti ng maging gold standard ang non invasive angiography. Pero siyempre di parin mamatay and plasty pati stenting, pero atleast malaki ang mamabalik na patients sa rads kasi people will prefer non invasive na modality.

Before you know it, marunong narin magbasa ng CT/MRI angio ang mga cardiologist. Hahaha! Hay buhay...sorry for the rant. I just love radio..


P.S. Im just saying that kung gusto mo IR fellowsip you should also probably do also CT/MRI kasi thats the future. Peace!!

Hi there markfreak, it is really hard to say which hospital will really give you the best training in radiology, maybe because each hospital has its own strength and weaknesses. In radiology, make sure to choose a hospital that is fully equipt, so that when you finish the training which is 4 years then you can at least handle almost all imaging machines and interpret it as well. Remember radiology is from pediatric to geriatric, from head to toe using xray, ultrasound, MRI and CT scan. Radiology always go hand in hand with technology, so the more hightech ang training mo, mas maganda ang future ng iyong practice.

A good training ground for radiology residency depends on you if you want full exposure to various radio diagnostics X-ray, UTZ, CT scan MRI , etc and even Nuclear medicine (radiotherapy) I think that would be nice to be an efficient radio consultant later on so far and alam ko may radio residency Lourdes Hospital, UPHDMC (Las Pinas), OMMC, St Lukes?. Its your choice what hospital you want to be in (basta accredited no problem) :D its best you inquire personally to your target hospitals get to know more of their program. God bless

hello kei m.d., I believe that when you are going to choose a hospital for a training in radiology one of the most important factor to consider is the bulk of patients for your exposure (hindi yung puro theoretical lang), the machines that they are using, friendly co-residents and environment and of course the consultants. Now if your direction is towards a more hightech imaging technique, and you are a type of person who is independent, mapag-pasensya, and ready gumastos for your books na sobrang mahal at dami go to our hospital SLMC.
1. Kung exposure lang, baka sumuko ka sa sobrang dami ng patient. hundreds per day for xray, you have at least 5-8 special procedure per resident like UGIS, barium study of the colon, IVP, retrograde pyelography, hysterography etc, we have several rooms for that, 1 room per resident for the procedure.
CT scan patient 600-800 patient per month using tomogram, 16slice & 64slice CT, cases are brain CT, whole ab, coronary angio, calcium scoring, virtual bronchoscopy and colonoscopy, orbit, PNS etc etc.... MRI 20-30 patients per day we have 1.5 and 3 tesla MRI we do the usual neuro, MSK, breast MRI, MRA, MRCP etc
usually 1st year ka palang (usually sa ika-10th month) you have already rotated sa lahat even sa CT & MRI, so first ka palang nag-iinitial kana even CT-MRI.
Breast Center meron din, ultrasound department yun mas doble ang number of patients.
Vascular & interventional radiology we have it also at the cathlab, 5-6 patients per day like biopsy, TACE, angiography, insertion of pigtail, transhep colangioraphy and catheter insertions etc.
We are using Dicom PACS (picture archiving communication system) to read images of CT, MRI, Ultrasound and xray, you can read it even your outside of the hospital, kahit saan kapa pumunta you can have your own password to access the images via the internet.


2. Friendly co-residents mo hehehe at madami kayo (batch namin 9 kami)

3. Consultants mostly trained sa USA, per system sila, consultants who are specialized in chest radiology, pediatric radiology, neuroradiology, breast specialist, head & neck radiology, MSK etc.

But I know we have different considerations in life kaya siguro, you have to have at least 3-5 list of hospitals according to your priorities then stay there for pre-resendency training then choose the best ka nalang. Goodluck

But I haven't taken the PBRs yet :huh: I was hoping to take it this coming January...

kailangan ba board-certified radiologist ka muna before mag-apply?

Separate po ang residency program ng radiology and nuclear med dto sa SLMC (alam ko sa buong Pilipinas), unlike sa U.S. kasama ang nuclear medicine sa Radiology training. Pero may rotation kami sa nuclear med.

The ABR only requires 6 months of Nucs in the US curiculum. If you want to be boarded in Nucs as most US hospitals would want you to be in order for you to reimburse your readings, you have to undergo 1 year fellowship after your radiology residency. They call it Nuclear Radiology, bali CAQ siya (certificate of added qualification). After that you can challenge both ABR and ABNM boards.

Dito sa atin, UST offers nuclear medicine as a fellowship to radiology graduates. 2 years nalang siya instead of 3.

Ron, ganda ng equipments niyo me 3 tesla na pala ang St Lukes, daig pa mas maraming ospital sa ibang bansa. 3 years parin ba ang nuc med sa st lukes kahit rads graduate kana?

doc hindi kupo alam kung ilang years pa ang nuclear med after radiology residency, itatanong kupo. pero kung 3 years pa I think mag rad-onco nalang ako 4 years lang, so 1 year lang difference.

yes doc may 3 tesla na MRI sa SLMC, dumating narin yung PET-CT nila.

AFIK, PGH also offers Nuc Med as a fellowship, albeit straight program siya starting 1st year residency. Kinda like their TCVS and Plastic Surg programs.
