To assess the hiring activities of radiology groups in 1994 and changes between 1991 and 1994 in the employment market for diagnostic radiologists and radiation oncologists.
Questionnaires about recruitment and hiring were mailed to a stratified random sample of radiology groups in the United States ; 92% (341 groups) responded.
Data were compared with a 1991 telephone survey that included responses from 150 radiology groups.
In 1994, radiology groups sought candidates for approximately 1,600 positions, a 29% decline from 1991.
Fifteen percent of positions were in radiation oncology, 52% in general diagnostic radiology, and 33% in diagnostic subspecialties.
As in 1991, groups filled three-fourths of their openings.
The percentage of openings filled did not differ statistically significantly from one field or subspecialty to another.
Available positions declined sharply.
However, approximately 400 positions remained vacant at the end of the hiring season, with groups still actively recruiting for 75% of them.
Employment is about equally difficult regardless of field.
