Call Schedule

Approximately 6 weeks of night shifts (5:00 pm - 1:00am) during RII, RIII, and RIV years.


Procedural Training

Most procedures are performed by residents according to modality, rather than by interventional radiology. This allows the residents constant exposure to procedures throughout their training.  Also, there are no radiology fellowship positions, allowing the residents to have access to all procedures performed in the department.  Residents become proficient at all basic image guided procedures (biopsies (both US and CT guided), drainages (thoracentesis/paracentesis/drain catheter placement), lumbar puncture, thyroid FNA, fluoroscopy (GI/GU studies and arthrograms), etc. The Interventional Radiology block primarily focuses on vascular intervention with a large volume of AFR and venogram cases, along with residents performing IR lite procedures (PICC and HD catheter placement (tunneled and temporary)).


Didactics & Conferences

Daily noon conferences that consist of attending driven lectures and teleconference lectures. Monday noon conference the resident on nights from the prior week will review interesting cases from their week of nights with the residency. Tuesday and Wednesday lectures are given by onsite faculty and are usually a mixture of lecture and case conferences. Thursday's conference is given by one of our radiologists in their area of specialty, often through a zoom lecture. Friday noon conference is a book club given by our onsite radiologist to review the weekly scheduled reading. Inter-departmental conferences are done quarterly with Orthopedics, Internal Medicine, and General surgery. Weekly 7:30am Pediatrics lectures are on Mondays and 11am Physics lectures are on Wednesdays.


Medical Student Clerkship

This clerkship is conducted under the supervision of the Chairperson of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and the Associate Dean for Clinical Education. The Chairperson, or his/her designee, will assign the immediate supervisor(s) for each student or group of students. Student activities will be coordinated to combine didactic and practical instruction to optimize educational opportunities.


Rotating medical students will expand their radiology knowledge by working alongside residents and attending physicians daily, as well as completing assigned reading and participation in daily noon conferences. Students will also prepare a lecture to be given to the residents upon completion of the rotation.


Should there be questions regarding the conduct, objectives or content of the clerkship, please contact the Diagnostic Radiology Program Coordinator.
