Welcome to Stanford Radiology Residency

The Stanford Diagnostic Radiology Residency program provides a supportive yet rigorous environment for you to learn from an internationally acclaimed faculty, known for superb teaching, outstanding patient care, and world-class research.

Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University fosters a culture of innovation and supports some of the most creative and productive scientists in the world. As a result, you will have the opportunity to work with these individuals to preview, and help develop, the imaging of tomorrow while mastering the techniques of today.

The goal of our radiology residency program is to train the future leaders of radiology by offering a rich clinical exposure through a wide variety of rotations that provide care to the diverse patient populations served by Stanford Health Care, Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital, VA Palo Alto Health Care System, and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.

Stanford’s curriculum affords residents the flexibility to pursue personal and professional endeavors about which they feel truly passionate. Most of our residents have devoted time during their four-year residency to perform cutting-edge researchadvance imaging informaticslaunch innovative companies, hone clinical skills through early clinical subspecialization, learn medical design innovation, and participate in hospital-wide quality improvement projects.

A healthy work-life balance is encouraged during residency training. Our residents enjoy the rich cultural and geographic diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area, which is within an easy drive from the Pacific Ocean, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, Monterey, Yosemite, and San Francisco. The Stanford campus and immediately adjacent Palo Alto offer many unique opportunities for outdoor activities, dining, sporting events, and the cultural benefits fostered by the world-class university and city at the heart of the technology industry.

I look forward to answering any questions you may have about our program.
