The Residency Program in Diagnostic Radiology is designed to provide an optimal, state-of-the-art environment in which our residents learn the diversities of diagnostic radiology at Yale New Haven Hospital. Resident education is guided by the most renowned faculty, who are dedicated to providing preceptorship in image interpretation, clinical problem solving, performance of procedures, teaching and consultation.
Our residents have exposure to a variety of research opportunities including the state-of art Magnetic Resonance Research Center and the Yale PET Research Center, which includes a medical cyclotron, radiochemistry laboratories and animal imaging resources.
Yale Diagnostic Radiology has an active Interventional Radiology Fellowship, training four Fellows annually in an ACGME accredited program. As the transition from Fellowship to Residency is rolled out, they will soon be offering a dual primary certification, with Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology Certificates awarded. A general year will start the post graduate training, followed by three years of focused diagnostic radiology, with the final two years concentrating on interventional radiology. Inpatient, outpatient, ICU and research time will be incorporated to round off a balanced six years of post graduate training.
The Yale Diagnostic Medical Physics Residency Program (YDMPR) in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging is a newly established program to start in January 2019. It is intended for candidates with an advanced degree in medical physics, physics, or a closely related field, who are interested in pursuing a career as a clinical diagnostic imaging Medical Physicist.
