Program Highlights

We offer one-on-one rotations with preceptors, which allows time for non-service activities, such as research, education and leadership activities.

There is excellent work-life balance. Call is very light and there is no in-house call after the first year of training.

Residents are funded for four international conferences, two review courses, a radiologic anatomy course and a radiobiology course.

Career planning starts in PGY 1. The staff and program director have a network of connections to help you get the job or fellowship you want.
