The mission of the UAMS DR residency is to train excellent diagnostic radiologists who are capable of entering private practice immediately upon graduation and/or successfully completing fellowship training at the program of their choice.

Our graduates will be:
1. ABR eligible with skills and appreciation for lifelong learning
2. Team-players with a strong work ethic
3. Capable of handling high volumes with a positive attitude
4. Cognizant of scientific research methodology and its application to the practice of radiology

Our large volume of imaging studies (well over 500,000 per year), wide variety of pathology, cutting-edge technology, and dedicated faculty make this training program an exceptional educational opportunity for residents. Our program includes the clinical year followed by 4 years of diagnostic radiology training. We will offer 7 positions in the upcoming match.

Our goal is to prepare you for subspecialty fellowship and excellence in either private practice or academic radiology with emphasis on patient-focused care.

Our residents are directly involved with all imaging and image-guided procedures performed in the department. Faculty supervision and timely feedback are provided at all times. Residents assume more and more responsibility as they progress through the training program. Exposure to a large volume of cases and variety of pathology ensures that you will perform with confidence upon completion of your training.

Our Resident Education Center includes a newly renovated resident library, resident lounge, conference room, and computer-based learning center, all made possible by Dr. Wilma Diner, who was our program director from 1971-1989. The Diner Family Endowment for Radiology Residents and additional support from the radiology faculty provide annual allocations for continued support of resident education.
