  • Retirement and issues associated with the initiation of retirement have undergone extensive change in the past decade. Multiple factors, including economic conditions, have resulted in a delay in the initiation of retirement. Delayed retirement of senior radiologists is a factor contributing to a diminished job market for entering radiology graduates. These senior radiologists have extensive experience in operational issues and understanding complex relationships with other health professionals, hospitals, and often medical schools. In addition, although they may not be as facile with Mill or PET/CT, senior radiologists have a tremendous command of traditional imaging, which is lacking in recently trained radiologists. The authors examine many of the issues related to delayed retirement and propose some possible solutions.
