During the first three years of residency, trainees rotate through all clinical subspecialties of radiology. The first year is divided into thirteen 4-week blocks with a standard set of rotations focused on preparation for call, including abdominal radiology, ultrasound, thoracic and cardiovascular imaging, neuroradiology, and musculoskeletal radiology. The second and third years build on this foundation of knowledge with increasing experience with higher complexity cases and more advanced imaging technologies. During the third year, residents take a four-week subsidized elective at the ACR Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) with option for virtual or in-person attendance.
With an outstanding core radiology clinical training experience, we have been able to maximize flexibility for our fourth-year residents to tailor their final year of residency. Some residents have chosen to pursue early subspecialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) or the 16-month pathway to subspecialty certification in Nuclear Medicine. Other residents have chosen to enhance their clinical exposure through mini-fellowships or pursue endeavors in research, biodesign, quality improvement, or leadership. We are proud to be able to support our residents in their unique journeys of professional growth and development.
