Program Highlights

Close-knit program of residents and radiologists provides a warm and enjoyable interpersonal and professional experience

Excellent faculty-to-trainee ratio and immense resident opportunity for hands-on learning, with early and in-depth experience with procedures and advanced imaging

Advance experience with a competency-based curriculum means Queen’s faculty are uniquely familiar with competency-based medical education (CBME) tools and concepts, which will ensure a smooth transition to the new Royal College Competence by Design (CBD) curriculum; building on our experience with CBME and teaching excellence, including continual feedback for trainees, individual mentorship (each resident is assigned a faculty Academic Advisor), and clearly defined goals and objectives for competency

Located in Kingston, one of the most picturesque and livable small cities in Ontario; highlights including: waterfront properties and activities, historic downtown, short commute times, lower cost of living, a bustling restaurant and tourism scene, central location between numerous larger metropolitan areas (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Syracuse), and proximity to numerous beautiful leisure destinations (Prince Edward County/Sandbanks Provincial Park, the Thousand Islands)

Resident Experience

Cyrus Thomas
PGY-3
A major draw of Queen’s Radiology is the program’s unique ability to combine the highly engaging academic experience, associated with a tertiary care centre, with an intimate learning environment. With a catchment area of approximately 500 000 people, there are plenty of opportunities to learn from and get involved with rare/interesting cases. Our close knit community of residents and radiologists has helped us to create an environment that is supportive and collegial. Our high faculty-to-trainee ratio provides great opportunity for hands-on learning to our residents from early in their training, including with advanced imaging modalities and image-guided procedures.
