General Information

Welcome to the Western University Radiology Residency Program website. I am pleased that you have shown an interest in the exciting radiology program at Western University.

London has three major teaching hospitals, including an integrated pediatric hospital and oncology center within the Victoria Hospital site. At University Hospital there is a renowned transplant program and Neurosciences program. St. Joseph’s Hospital boasts an internationally known Hand and Upper Limb Clinic. The training program encompasses a catchment area covering all of southwestern Ontario. London and Western University have an active research community that includes specialized imaging research groups at the world-renowned Robarts Research Institute and at the Lawson Health Research Institute. There are approximately 50 Radiologists within London and a separate Nuclear Medicine department with a residency program offering specialized training. The Radiology faculty at Western have fellowship subspecialty training in a wide variety of expertise resulting in excellent teaching by dedicated staff.

We are a medium sized program with approximately 20 residents and are a close, collegial group. The favorable resident-to-fellow ratio at Western University allows residents to have ample opportunities to gain valuable experience at performing image-guided procedures. Our residents participate in activities such as the annual resident retreat, a thriving visiting professor program and an active journal club. The residents also enjoy a relaxing welcome barbecue each summer, competing against the staff radiologists in the annual softball game and getting together for holiday events.

Western Radiology residents have a tradition of success in the Royal College qualifying exams and in obtaining competitive fellowship training positions throughout Canada and the United States. That a number of former residents have returned and accepted faculty positions at Western is a testament to the high level of satisfaction and loyalty of the graduates of our program.
