Family / medical leave, lactation & other adjacent topics - A Collection of Articles
Clinical Imaging occasionally pushes the envelope by publishing on topics that others may choose to pass on. This collection of peer-reviewed articles seeks to highlight normative or positive family-friendly policies from individual leaders, practices, and institutions in our field, with the hope that the collection will provide practical resources for individuals and organizations seeking to learn more about these important and adjoining topics.
How we do it: Family leave at Rose Imaging Specialists, a large specialized breast imaging practiceThere is no private practice more uniquely positioned to address family leave than Rose Imaging Specialists (RIS). We are one of the nation's largest groups of specialized breast radiologists, operating in multiple cities throughout Texas, Ohio and Arizona. RIS is a rapidly growing female-powered (76%, 29 of 38) private practice, serving an almost entirely female patient population and supported by an almost entirely female staff. With great power, comes great responsibility. Trailblazing a new paradigm for not only paid family leave, but also earnest ongoing support of work life balance, is critical to attracting and retaining talent, avoiding burnout and increasing diversity .
