Curriculum/Schedule

Photo of January 2024 Resident

Radiology residents will spend their first year creating a strong foundation in all areas of radiology with rotations in most specialties.

The variety of patient care settings provides a wealth of experience with an outstanding case mix. It is upon this foundation that future years of education and growth are built.

We believe that the program is well-balanced with education in all areas of radiology. We continually assess the educational needs of the residents as the specialty of radiology evolves.

The educational structure of the residency is based upon learning through patient cases and didactic teaching, both in the formal conference setting and through patient care.

Our well-balanced series of rotations provides the resident with carefully structured progressive and graded responsibility in all nine of the subspecialty areas:

  • Neuroradiology
  • Musculoskeletal Radiology
  • Vascular and Interventional Radiology
  • Cardiothoracic Radiology
  • Breast Radiology
  • Abdominal Radiology
  • Pediatric Radiology
  • Ultrasonography (including obstetrical and vascular ultrasound)
  • Nuclear Radiology (including PET and nuclear cardiology)

Our residency program has adopted a "No-Pull" policy so residents can rest assured that they will have uninterrupted dedicated teaching during their block rotation.
