Resident Lecture Series, Rotations, and Call

The Department of Radiology at NYU Winthrop Hospital is fully committed to providing a rich educational environment for its trainees.

  • Educational Curriculum/Lecture Series
    • Two-year, all-encompassing curriculum with case-based and didactic lectures given by fellowship-trained faculty in all radiology subspecialties
      • “Summer series” of core lectures given each July through September, with the remaining lectures given on a rotating basis, every two years
      • Lecture schedule is distributed monthly so that residents have ample time to prepare for conferences
      • The robust educational program includes many types of sessions in addition to conventional didactic lectures and case conferences, including quality improvement, radiology-pathology conference, journal club, monthly Radiology Grand Rounds and case review sessions with visiting professors from around the U.S. and Canada, Wellness series, “Brant and Helms club”, radiology physics, and quarterly research meetings
    • Dedicated protected time from 12-1:30pm daily to attend lectures
  • All subspecialty rotations currently occur at NYU Winthrop, in a mix of 2- and 4-week blocks
    • The absence of fellowship programs in the NYU Winthrop Radiology Department results in all teaching and clinical volume being dedicated to and focused on the residents
    • Radiology residents are actively involved in all aspects of each service, including protocolling imaging examinations/procedures, presenting at multi-disciplinary conferences, interpreting imaging examinations in close conjunction with the attending radiology staff, and discussing and reporting findings to ordering clinicians
    • Dedicated research time is now built into the curriculum
  • NYU Winthrop radiology residents attend the four-week American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) course during the first half of their PGY-4/R-3 year, with tuition paid for by the department and a generous travel and living stipend per resident
