The Diagnostic Radiology residency training program at Bridgeport Hospital is an ACGME accredited four-year residency training program approved for 16 residents. We participate in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP) administrated by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) after application through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS).
Bridgeport Hospital is a member of the Yale New Haven Health System, and is a private, not-for profit acute care community hospital with 383 licensed beds, plus 42 beds licensed under Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital. Residents are exposed to a variety of patients from the community with a wide range of medical needs. Both the inpatient and outpatient population reflect the diseases of the diverse immigrant populations represented in the Greater Bridgeport area. In addition, the hospital serves a large middle and upper-middle class residential community from Fairfield County. The diversity of the patient population ensures that residents experience a wide range of disease entities.
With 31 subspecialty-trained faculty members, our residents receive the hands-on training skills necessary to become excellent radiologists. Our goal is to fulfill the ACGME core competencies, from medical knowledge to patient care, and prepare our residents for the American Board of Radiology exams. We strive to train our residents to be excellent radiologists and exceptional teachers.
We wish you all the best in your medical career. Please feel free to contact us at 203-384-3834 should you have any questions about our program.
