- Paid family/medical leave in radiology: now is the time. At the 2020 American College of Radiology (ACR) annual meeting, a paid family/medical leave resolution was deferred due to uncertainty surrounding the emerging COVID-19 pandemic. At the 2021 ACR annual meeting, ACR councilors passed the American Association for Women in Radiology (AAWR) amendment to resolution 48 in strong support of 12 weeks of family/medical leave for diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, radiation oncology and nuclear medicine residents; the vote was 89.13% in the affirmative.
