Yale Diagnostic Radiology offers an optimal, highly advanced and diverse environment in which medical students, residents, and fellows learn diagnostic and interventional radiology.
The residency program in Diagnostic Radiology is one of the most competitive and highly regarded in the nation, receiving more than 500 applications for the 9 to 10 positions yearly. A unique research opportunity is available to residents in Nuclear Medicine through the new state-of-the-art research PET center.
The Department offers fellowships in Breast Imaging, Body Imaging, Nuclear Medicine, Interventional Radiology, Pediatrics, Musculoskeletal Imaging, Neuroradiology and Administrative Leadership in Radiology.
The Bioimaging Sciences Division faculty teach a significant number of courses to Yale undergraduate students and graduate students in Biomedical Engineering and the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program, including Physics of Medical Imaging, Physical and Chemical Basis of Biosensing, and Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis. The faculty currently supervise 15 graduate students in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry and more than 20 postdoctoral fellows.
Resident research abounds with many residents presenting at national and international meetings as well as publishing their findings in peer-reviewed journals. Resident research has ranged from clinical investigations to bioimaging science studies, to medical management and public policy research.
Yale Diagnostic Radiology residents have routinely won nationally renown prestigious prizes and honors, including the top national prize in MRI sponsored by Bracco, a Fellowship sponsored by Amersham and The Body CT/MR Society, and a Magna Cum Laude Citation from the ASNM. Another recent honor was extended to one of our chief residents who authored a resolution regarding reimbursement rates for mammography and was passed at the recent AMA meeting.
In addition, Yale resident research is well represented at the annual radiology meetings every year since it's inception. One of our second year residents has been selected to attend the Introduction to Research Program sponsored by the RSNA/AUR/ARRS at either the RSNA or ARRS.
