As in any field, radiologists may face a number of challenges as they navigate their early careers. Because with experience comes wisdom, early-career radiologists may find helpful the advice and perspectives of mid- and late-career radiologists. The Society of Abdominal Radiology recognizes the value of this pool of knowledge and experience, prompting the establishment of the Early Career Committee. This group is designed to support early-career radiologists by sharing the experiences and insights of leaders in the field. In this series, the authors interview trailblazers Matthew S. Davenport, MD; Jonathan B. Kruskal, MD, PhD; Katherine E. Maturen, MD, MS; David B. Larson, MD, MBA; and Desiree E. Morgan, MD. This perspective explores a wide range of subjects, including personal values in medicine, the role of teleradiology, diversity of backgrounds in radiology, how to navigate workplace conflict, and lifelong learning in medicine. Beyond conveying these pearls of wisdom, the aim of this perspective is to highlight for early-career radiologists the value that mid- and late-career mentors can provide in navigating careers in medicine.
