"We offer a busy, academically challenging residency in a supportive environment that fosters learning and professional development."


Message from the Program Director

Our residency training program has a stellar reputation for developing well-trained Radiologists. Residents are exposed to a unique foundation of education, research, clinical service, and citizenship. The strength of our program is the one on one educational interaction that occurs between radiology faculty and the residents. Graduated supervision provides the framework for the development of manual procedural skills and judgment. Residents and faculty have been recognized for their outstanding presentations at both national and international meetings.

The principal objective of our residency program is to provide comprehensive and flexible education in all aspects of Diagnostic Radiology. The four year program consists of carefully scheduled subspecialty rotations including abdominal (GI/GU), chest, breast, nuclear/molecular, neuroradiology, pediatric, cardiovascular, interventional, ultrasound, body CT/MR, musculoskeletal, and emergency radiology. In addition, Residents spend four weeks at the Air Force Institute of Pathology correlating Pathology and Radiology.

The Department prides itself on being able to offer a busy, academically challenging residency in a supportive environment, one that fosters learning and professional development. Our goal is to provide a nurturing educational experience where talented young physicians can maximize their potential and our close knit faculty and resident staff helps reduce some of the stress inherent in post graduate medical training. Strong emphasis is placed on the quality of teaching during clinical rotations and daily resident conferences. Residents review cases and present their findings and conclusions to the staff in a one-on-one teaching exchange. Interventional procedures are performed by residents under attending supervision. Department teaching conferences occur twice daily and include a balanced mix of both didactic and case discussion conferences. Medical physics and radiation safety are taught onsite by our staff physicists.

A consistent hallmark of our program has been the research and scholarly accomplishments of our residents. Faculty mentors facilitate resident participation and guide the resident, as they serve as primary investigators. By their fourth year, residents will have voluntarily completed several projects, including presentation at national meetings. Several of our residents have been selected to participate in highly competitive resident research symposiums sponsored by the RSNA and ARRS.

The success of any residency program is ultimately judged by the quality of its residents. The board performance, fellowship and job placement, interpersonal skills and professionalism of our graduates are the strongest endorsements for the training you will receive in our residency program.
