Congratulations on your decision to pursue a career in the field of Radiology; you have chosen a dynamic, challenging, and rewarding specialty. In no other area of contemporary medicine has the impact of technology been so great. Multislice CT scanners can freeze a beating heart, high field MRI allows diagnosis based on the chemical composition of tissues, and tumor-specific radionucleotides offer new ways to diagnose, monitor and even treat cancer. Nearly all aspects of medical practice depend on some sort of imaging today.
Our goals and objectives (PDF download) are to provide you an opportunity to train with bright, enthusiastic colleagues in a friendly, supportive environment. To that end, we have assembled a faculty of experienced, talented, and dedicated subspecialists who not only enjoy their work but are committed to teaching and to excellence in patient care. The training programs are designed to obtain maximum benefit from the large volume of clinical material and the broad range of pathology encountered at the well-equipped hospital and outpatient centers affiliated with the program. Our conference curriculum is well organized and is aimed at preparing residents for the Core exam.
Combine our focus on education with the many attractions and amenities of a large southwestern city with a year-round temperate climate, and you have the formula for a successful and enjoyable residency experience. We hope this website conveys a sense of the quality and convivial atmosphere of our department, and we look forward to receiving your application.
We take pride in our diverse department and inclusive culture. We constantly strive to maintain an environment of open communication where diverse and creative ideas flourish. Having an inclusive environment has helped our residents experience a better learning experience, both during clinical rotations and while studying for exams.
