Our rotation schedule allows for all the required rotations, exposure to
necessary procedures, and includes a well-rounded didactic schedule. Quarterly
journal clubs and Grand Rounds are included in our schedule. Each resident
will participate in a scholarly activity/research curriculum in their
first year and will receive mentorship to complete a research project.
Our diagnostic radiology residents take call, on average, once per month
– including one holiday per year.
All the necessary equipment, such as IR glasses, lead aprons, thyroid protectors,
laptops and cell phones are provided. Our GME Reading Room includes 8
PACS trainers dedicated for radiology resident use.
Additionally, residents have access to a large amount of online educational
resources including HCA’s free online library. Radiology residents
belong to a number of committees which provide leadership skills and exposure
to non-clinical decision-making. We offer wellness activities several
times per year, and our work schedule is extremely reasonable.
As part of HCA Healthcare, we share one mission: Above all else, we are
committed to the care and improvement of human life. Our program's
