The Department of Imaging Sciences at the University of Rochester Medical Center encompasses outstanding education, research, and clinical excellence in a leading academic health sciences institution. Our faculty are nationally recognized authorities in their respective fields. Our clinical programs are primarily conducted at the University of Rochester Medical Center—Strong Memorial Hospital. This tertiary care center houses Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong, the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center, a Level I Trauma Center, and specialized referral services. Additional services are provided at Highland Hospital and two outpatient facilities: University Medical Imaging and PET-CT Center at Science Park. Ambulatory sites throughout the community and remote sites in the area are accessible by teleradiology.

Our residency program is highly competitive, attracting medical students from across the United States. Most of our residents pursue fellowship subspecialty training. The volume and diversity of our cases in conjunction with a dedication to teaching excellence provides our residents with the necessary training to equally pursue careers in academic medicine or private practice.

Our clinical and research fellowships are equally outstanding. Subspecialty fellowship training is available in interventional radiology, neuroradiology, emergency radiology, pediatric radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, and body imaging.

Welcome to the web site for the Radiology Residency Program at the University of Rochester Medical Center. For Resident candidates, I trust the information provided will be useful in making the important decision regarding your future post-graduate education.

The primary mission of our Residency Program is to provide an excellent and supportive environment for the training of our future colleagues in Radiology. This is accomplished by the combination of an outstanding clinical and research faculty, state-of-the-art technology, and wide range of diseases and disorders encountered in our referral population. The University of Rochester Medical Center is a leading academic medical institution which is ranked 15th in federal research funding among the 176 top funded research universities, with more than $400 million in total sponsored research during each of the prior two years and $348 million in 2012. Our Residency benefits from its association with other top-ranked Departments such as Neurology, Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Internal Medicine, Surgery, and Family Medicine.

The Department is seeking outstanding candidates interested in either academic or clinical careers. The Program will provide each Resident with a strong knowledge base in all areas of Radiology, as well guidance for acquiring skills necessary for efficient analysis, interpretation, and communication of results to referring physicians. Research during the Residency is also strongly encouraged and will be assisted by the Faculty Mentors.

Our Residency program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). We have 9 ACGME approved PGY-2 positions in Diagnostic Radiology. New Residents begin on July 1. The deadline for receipt of applications and all required documentation is December 1. Dean's letters and/or updated transcripts will be the only documentation accepted after the deadline. Required documentation includes USMLE Step 1 scores, medical school transcripts, three letters of recommendation from clinical faculty, a personal statement and curriculum vitae. Applications and documentation will only be accepted through ERAS.

Interviews are typically held from October through the beginning of January. Invitations for interviews will be via e-mail. If you have any questions about the Radiology Residency Program or application process, please send e-mail to Karen Pennington
