About the Program
The University of Wisconsin radiology residency is affiliated with the UW Hospital and the University of Wisconsin Medical School in Madison, Wisconsin. Madison has a population of 200,000 and is nestled between two lakes in south central Wisconsin. Madison is the state capital and home of the main campus of the University of Wisconsin and its 40,000 students.
There are 8 residents per year in the radiology residency program. We no longer offer the 7-year combined program (neurology/radiology/neuroradiology). Applications for our residency program are accepted through ERAS, which can be reached at http://www.aamc.org/eras (external link).
David Kim, MD is the current director for the residency program.

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, nuclear medicine, physics and radiobiology), integrated didactic and practical work is offered to afford satisfactory development and correlation of knowledge.
The Department of Radiology offers separate residencies in diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine. 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 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.
The department contains a learning center, which includes a laboratory with a computer-assisted learning program and the American College of Radiology (ACR) teaching discs, a film museum and extensive video tapes.
Research opportunities are readily available for interested residents, ranging from MR software development to interventional radiology animal studies to clinical research. Up to 3 months can be taken as a research elective, and presentation of results at national meetings is financially supported.
