Our mission is to train compassionate highly competent radiologists who are leaders in the field of radiology through a collegial educational environment, interaction with world-class faculty, and access to advanced imaging equipment and techniques.
The Department of Radiology’s goal is to provide a well-rounded background in the radiological sciences to residents, medical and graduate students. While individual training programs are conducted by separate sections (diagnosis, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, physics and radiobiology), integrated didactic and practical work is offered to afford satisfactory development and correlation of knowledge.
There are eight residents per year in the radiology residency program. Applications for our residency program are accepted through ERAS, which can be reached at http://www.aamc.org/eras.
While the Department of Radiology offers a separate nuclear medicine residency, residents in the diagnostic radiology program are provided with six months of nuclear medicine training. Resident conferences are held every morning at 7:30 AM and 12:00 PM. These involve either case discussion or didactic lecture by a faculty radiologist. Radiology Grand Rounds lectures are held every Thursday at noon and are usually given by a visiting radiologist. A medical physics course is given every year, and there are additional interdepartmental conferences. Research opportunities are readily available for interested residents, ranging from MR software development to interventional radiology animal studies to clinical research. Up to three months can be taken as a research elective, and presentation of results at national meetings is financially supported.
The UW has a highly competitive compensation and benefits plan. For more information, you can visit the UW Health GME website.
