Diagnostic Radiology Residency

The Department of Radiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin offers a comprehensive four-year residency in Diagnostic Radiology under the auspices of the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals. Eight positions are available each year, and are filled through the specialty match (PG-II level) through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Candidates must obtain and complete one year of clinical graduate medical education (transitional PG-I, preliminary medicine PG-I, preliminary surgery PG-I, or the equivalent) before beginning the residency in Diagnostic Radiology.

  Educational Objectives

The residency in Diagnostic Radiology provides a complete clinical and academic experience, which is fully compliant with the Program Requirements for Residency Education in Diagnostic Radiology, as accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The residency provides intensive clinical experience in all subspecialty areas of Diagnostic Radiology. Direct clinical training with graduated responsibility, a comprehensive didactic program, and excellent availability for participation in a wide variety of research activities provides a complete academic Radiology residency.

  Program Outline

The residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals is fully accredited and in complete compliance with the Program Requirements for Residency Education in Diagnostic Radiology of the ACGME. Specific requirements for nuclear medicine training and breast imaging are provided in the residency.

The program curriculum emphasizes strongly subspecialized rotations in all areas of Diagnostic Radiology. Specific rotations in thoracic radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, abdominal imaging, neuroradiology, interventional radiology, breast imaging, computed tomography, ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, and pediatric radiology form the basis of the curricular effort. Radiologic-pathologic correlation is emphasized throughout the residency, and enhanced by attendance at the American Institute of Radiologic Pathology four-week course in radiologic-pathologic correlation. (Tuition is provided for this course.)

The residency is based at Froedtert Hospital, a 500-bed academic tertiary-care hospital located on the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center's 115-acre suburban campus. Froedtert is the adult acute care medical center serving the Medical College of Wisconsin, and houses a Level One Trauma Center, the Froedtert & Medical College Cancer Center and active programs in many areas including organ transplantation, neurosciences, musculoskeletal disease, and a variety of other major programs, centers and institutes. Approximately 365,000 radiology and nuclear medicine examinations are performed annually at Froedtert Hospital.

Residents spend six curricular months at the Zablocki VA Medical Center, a tertiary-care, subspecialized, Dean's Committee medical center, which is located approximately three miles from the Froedtert campus (about six minutes by car).  VA rotations in digital imaging and vascular and interventional radiology are tightly integrated with similar rotations at Froedtert Hospital. Two rotations in general imaging provide the resident the opportunity to experience a mixed (rather than subspecialized) practice pattern in Radiology. The VAMC performs approximately 120,000 examinations per year.

Pediatric Radiology is taught at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, a major regional pediatric resource. Approximately 150,000 pediatric examinations are performed by the Radiology Department at CHW. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Radiology is accredited under the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals' core Diagnostic Radiology residency, and also provides fellowship training in Pediatric Radiology.

The faculty of the Department of Radiology of the Medical College of Wisconsin include recognized national and international leaders in radiology, radiologic physics, and magnetic resonance science. Faculty members hold national and international offices in many major radiologic societies and provide senior leadership to organized Radiology at many levels including educational organizations, accrediting bodies, and scientific organizations.

All affiliated hospitals and departments are well equipped with modern radiologic imaging equipment. The main department at Froedtert Hospital includes five state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging units as well as several research magnets, five General Electric multi-slice helical CT scanners including the most recently developed 64-slice unit, and advanced ultrasound units, digital angiography units, mobile fluoroscopic special procedures rooms, a hybrid PET/CT device, and modern SPECT capability on all nuclear medicine cameras. The Department has a fully functional PACS system with enterprise-wide image distribution. The Department of Radiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin serves as a developmental partner for several industrial collaborators with major partnerships in place with General Electric Healthcare.

The Radiology Department library contains pertinent Radiology journals and textbooks as well as other educational materials. The library is equipped with network workstations with appropriate software, access to the ACR Learning File, and other teaching collections in electronic format. Access to Medline, the Internet, STATDX and digital presentation facilities are available.

A resident may elect to use up to five days of educational leave annually to attend a scientific meeting or course. Two days may be spent to attend the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting in Chicago, which is not charged against educational leave time.

  Current Residents

Residents are drawn from around the country and have diverse personal backgrounds.  They consistently achieve certification in Diagnostic Radiology, and go on to outstanding subspecialty fellowship training programs both in our institution and in highly recognized academic institutions nationally, or enter excellent practice opportunities.
