This year’s European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI) Annual Scientific Meeting held in Budapest started with the EUSOBI Young Club (EYC) Symposium on October 3rd, Thursday morning. This was an interactive workshop dedicated to young breast radiologists, focused on communication, leadership and career planning. European experts and leaders in the field, including Prof. Michael Fuchsjäger (ESR 1st Vice-President), Dr. Julia Camps-Herrero (EUSOBI President) and Prof. Christiane Kuhl, shared their experience on communication, leadership and research. The fruitful discussion with the experts provided us with leads and suggestions to read (1) in order to achieve our goals and balance clinical tasks, research and private life. The attendees participated actively and shared their thoughts, hopes and fears with the panel of experts, not hesitant to tell their stories and experiences. The youngest generation had the opportunity to get precious tips on how to succeed in the complex job of being a breast radiologist. The EYC Committee announced the launch of a series of monthly webinars focused on “Tricks and Treats of Breast MRI” starting November 2019. More information on dates and time-schedules will be forthcoming on the EUSOBI website.
