Welcome to the University of Cincinnati Radiology Residency Program. Our focus on resident education has been a foundation of this department since its inception and has continued under such luminary radiologists as Dr. Benjamin Felson and Dr. Jerome Wiot. We strive to provide our residents with the most comprehensive and innovative training program in a collegial atmosphere that will serve them throughout their fellowship and career. There are many unique features of our program that include:
- Curriculum: We profide comprehensive didactic and case based lectures utilizing a variety of teaching methods including "Diagnosis Live," a revolutionary teaching tool developed by the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA), to foster an ideal learning environment. Learn more at http://rsna.org/DiagnosisLive
- Schedule: Based on feedback from our residents we have instituted a unique curriculum that allows more flexibility for residents. First year radiology residents will spend more time (3-4 weeks) focusing in each section to learn fundamentals, with more senior residents having shorter 2-3 week rotations focusing on more advanced cases and concepts. This rotation allows for residents to rotate in any section more than once a year and reinforces knowledge acquired while rotating in each section.
- Meetings: Our residents are highly encouraged to become involved in numerous research endeavors underway in our department. Residents who become involved in submitting abstracts, posters, and presentations at national meetings will be supported by our program to attend these meetings. We also support residents attending state and national meetings of the ACR, AUR Radiology Resident Academic Leadership Development Program, and RSNA/AUR/ARRS Introduction to Academic Radiology.
- Technology: All of our first year residents receive an iPad at the beginning of their residency that can be loaded with lectures, journal articles, and textbooks to complement their education. This is also a valuable tool for our Diagnosis Live and interactive lecture series.
- Atmosphere: One of my primary goals as the residency Program Director is to provide the highest quality education experience for all our residents in an environment that is friendly and respectful of everyone.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our program. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions you may have at Rose.Alden@uchealth.com
