We provide a solid curriculum of didactic and case-based conferences. All residents are expected to attend daily teaching conferences at 7am and 1pm, given by faculty radiologists, sometimes assisted by a resident. Radiology Grand Rounds, a monthly departmental Journal Club, subspecialty journal clubs, and a wide variety of interdepartmental and multidisciplinary conferences augment opportunities for learning and resident participation. M&M conferences are led monthly by the IR division for quality improvement and teaching. A systems-based practice curriculum prepares residents to identify and solve systems problems.
The department’s Visiting Professors Program enriches the teaching, clinical, and research experience of both residents and faculty through exchange with nationally renowned experts in the different radiological subspecialties. On average, 4 visiting professors are invited to the campus each year.
Physics education provides residents with an understanding of the physical principles and theories involved in diagnostic imaging modalities. Our curriculum includes structured didactic lectures and laboratories based on the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) curriculum and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) web modules. At all times we seek to provide clinical relevance for topics to aid each resident in preparing for the American Board of Radiology (ABR) core examination.
