The diagnostic radiology residency program provides an opportunity for development of the knowledge and technical skill necessary for the practice of diagnostic radiology with emphasis on training in an environment that reflects the clinical practice of radiology. Providing the credentials, case material and didactic education necessary for certification by the American Board of Radiology are the paramount objectives of the program.
Based in a private practice atmosphere, the basic and physical sciences of radiology are also emphasized. Clinical and basic science research is also encouraged. This combination affords residents the opportunity to pursue academic fellowships and other academic positions in radiology, if desired.
Because radiologic diagnosis is important to essentially all physicians, the program provides an opportunity for medical students and residents in non-radiologic disciplines to learn the fundamentals of radiologic interpretation and to participate in the daily activity of a radiological practice.
