About the Program
The residency program extends from Post Graduate Year PGY-2 through PGY-5. Successful completion of an ACGME approved clinical PGY-1 is necessary before commencing radiology training.
- Residents learn diagnostic radiology through sub-specialty areas of pulmonary, abdominal, emergency, neurological, musculoskeletal, and pediatric radiology.
- Skilled interpretation of magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, ultrasonography, nuclear medicine, and computed radiography is an important focus of the program.
- Training in breast imaging, vascular and interventional procedures, and radiation physics round-out a comprehensive curriculum which meets or exceeds American Board of Radiology (ABR) requirements.
- Specialty rotations are assigned at levels of increasing sophistication and experience. Individual responsibilities for procedures, imaging interpretation, teaching, and consultation are expanded as the resident advances through the program.
- A faculty of full and part-time board-certified radiologists and Ph.D.s with subspecialty expertise in their respective areas participates in supervision, teaching, and research.
- The Department of Imaging Sciences performs over 900,000 examinations annually at Strong Memorial Hospital and its outpatient facilities.
- An additional 90,000 examinations are performed each year at nearby Highland Hospital.
