Our residency program is designed to give gradual increased responsibility to our residents in all of the many subspecialties of Diagnostic Radiology. It is important to undertake the multiple specialties gradually so that the acquired skills are maintained during the entire residency. With occasional minor variations, residents may expect the following rotations, which includes elective rotations at the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology, Yale New Haven Hospital for Pediatrics and Nuclear Medicine, and an off-site women’s imaging center.

As part of their training, residents in the Diagnostic Radiology residency are provided with free access to online educational systems, i.e. STATdx, RADPrimer and e-Anatomy. STATdx is a digital, clinical decision support system that helps physicians make fast, accurate diagnoses in complex cases. RADPrimer provides residents and program directors with tools to assess and track imaging knowledge in the core disciplines of Radiology, and E-Anatomy is an award-winning online atlas of the human anatomy.
