What is the most rewarding moment of the radiology residency?

Aside from the great training we get at this institution, one of the best things about our program is the resident camaraderie. While it's a fairly big residency program, it feels like one big family. When things come up, the residents are there to support each other. Being friends with your co-residents on a level more than just being co-workers makes the day-to-day work that much more enjoyable. I could not have asked for a better group of co-residents.​
