Residents are exposed to a comprehensive curriculum and rotate through all subspecialties of radiology. To prepare resident for the ABR core exam we have revamped our core curriculum to encompass all subspecialties within radiology in the first 36 months of residency. The fourth year serves as an elective year, or "mini-fellowship" year. The first-year resident schedule is focused on mastering the core curriculum necessary to prepare for independent call. A complete list of resident rotations can be found here
Residents attend AIRP for one month. Research is strongly encouraged and there is no shortage of opportunities. Each resident is required to complete one research project prior to graduation. If a resident is presenting a poster or presentation at a conference, the department will pay for all expenses.
