Administrative Services, within Diagnostic Imaging, consists of a team of dedicated and multidimensional support staff. They provide administrative and office support to medical and management staff, as well as academic/scientific support in the preparation of presentations, lectures, publications, book chapters and research grants. Staffing consists of an administrative assistants, who provide support to the radiologist-in-chief, the managing director, radiologists, scientists, fellows, residents and managers.
Administrative Services underwent a redesign to enhance services and to further streamline workflow processes:
- Our residency coordinator works with the Residency Program director to ensure that all criteria for the rotating residents coming to DI are met. From organizing their orientation and training to scheduling their daily shifts, she provides the residents with the administrative support they require to complete their rotation.
- Our Fellowship Program has evolved over the past year with a total of 70 applications for ten funded and ten self-funded fellowship positions. The administrative team processes all of the applications and coordinates all interviews for these candidates. Administration of the Paediatric Fellowship Program is focused on ensuring that each fellow’s program admission criteria and on-going regulatory criteria are met while maintaining our accreditation with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
We support conferences/courses within our Department by organizing all of the administrative aspects including cost management, pamphlet design, registration, organization of events, creation of symposium manuals and compilation of all evaluations post-conference.
In the next year, the focus of Administrative Services will be to continue to improve the already outstanding quantity and quality of services and administrative support provided throughout the department.
