Innovative educational programs for lifelong learning.

Medical Students

As medical imaging has become more central to the practice of medicine, it has become increasingly important for medical students to be familiar with the basic principles of radiology, the different imaging modalities available and how they can be best utilized, as well as the role imaging holds in the current medical system.



Our department offers two residencies: the Diagnostic Radiology Residency and the Interventional Radiology Residency. Within the Interventional Radiology Residency, trainees can choose to follow our integrated or independent tracks.



There are 10 fellowship opportunities designed for individuals looking to explore a subspecialty of our field. Explore our fellowship list to find out more about these educational, research and clinical opportunities.
