Dr. Da Cheng Liu is a Radiology registrar at The Alfred hospital. In this podcast, he talks to us about the type of medical student he was and how he thinks that translated to the career he has now. We discuss the internship application and interview and ways to come across as a good candidate. Dr. Liu also provides advice on how to pursue your interest in radiology as a medical student as he decided quite early on that radiology was what he wanted to do.

Dr. Liu provides insight into how competitive the field of radiology is and ways to improve your CV if you are unsuccessful in attaining a training program position the first time around. The podcast also includes information on the day-to-day jobs of a registrar, the hours involved and the amount of study one is expected to complete after the day is done.

We discuss the subspecialties available in radiology and where the field might progress to in 5 to 10 years. There is a lot of variety in Radiology and this is something Dr. Liu really enjoys about his specialty.

Hope you guys enjoy this podcast. Feel free to leave us any feedback as always! And if you have any questions you want asked, we can send them to Dr. Liu for you.
