Program Strengths

Resident trainees have access to Strong Memorial Hospital, and several satellite clinics—including the only regional PET/CT scanner and cyclotron. The high volume and diversity of the cases our trainees are exposed to in this environment helps ensure a very rich clinical experience. A new free-standing 8 story children's hospital (Golisano Children’s Hospital) opened in July 2015 and a new Imaging Sciences/Pediatric Ambulatory Building will be opened in 2016.

Residents receive comprehensive training in a wide variety of radiological subspecialties, imaging modalities and advanced procedures. We were one of the first programs in the nation to implement PACS, and have remained at the forefront of imaging technology through research and collaboration with industry such as Carestream/Kodak.

The University of Rochester Medical Center employs accomplished, influential and nationally recognized faculty within the Department of Imaging Sciences furthermore residents meet and learn from distinguished visiting professors and board examiners.

The University as a whole has grown to be the greater Rochester region's largest employer with over 22,000 full-time equivalent jobs, making the University the seventh largest private employer in New York State.
