In light of concerns about the job market, the American College of Radiology studied the employment situation of 1998 graduates from diagnostic radiology training programs and the status and plans of the programs.

Ninety-one percent of those surveyed responded.
We compared findings from the 1998 survey with similar findings from the 1997 survey, with a p value less than or equal to. 05 representing statistical significance.
Similar to 1997,96% of residency graduates and 89% of fellowship graduates had commitments for posttraining jobs or fellowships as of the survey date.
Approximately 92% of graduates had positions that directors believed reasonably matched their training and personal employment goals.
The percentage of fellows with positions was similar across subspecialty fields.
Completed plus planned changes in program size for residents would gradually lead to a 21% reduction in the annual number of graduates within the next 4 years.
Much as in previous years, by late April to mid May 1998,94% of beginning-year residency slots were filled.
