Diagnostic Radiology Residency Teaching Opportunities

An important goal of this residency training program is the fostering of skilled physician educators. An effective radiologist is one who can communicate clearly to clinicians and who can impart knowledge succinctly to other physicians.

Accordingly, all residents act as mentors for the medical students helping them select cases for their assigned case presentations and many residents also provide medical students with monthly lectures.

Residents also participate in interdisciplinary conferences with the pathology and medicine departments, explaining the radiology behind autopsy cases or for many ICU or floor patients.
