Diagnostic Radiology Residency General Information

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our residency program. We currently train 8 diagnostic radiology residents per year in what we consider to be an outstanding educational program. Our program combines the academic vigor of a world-class medical center with an abundant and varied caseload, and camaraderie second to none.

The four-year residency program consists of a three-year block schedule through the subspecialties of radiology (see current curriculum). The fourth year is primarily elective time so that residents may engage in mini-fellowships and extraclinical training (see Senior Electives).

Each resident previews and dictates cases at his or her PACS viewing station, and then reviews the findings and impressions one-on-one with a radiology staff member in a personal teaching exchange. Interventional procedures are carried out by residents under the supervision of staff members. As each resident advances through the program, independence and responsibility increase in accordance with individual ability.

Brigham and Women’s Radiology is exceedingly fortunate to have rich resources in its faculty, staff and trainees. All faculty are subspecialty trained, bringing out the fine points of image interpretation and procedural skills that will serve the trainee well in clinical practice.

We accept applications through the ERAS program as part of the general admission process. Please refer to the frequently asked questions regarding applying to our residency program.
