Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program


Residents are given progressively greater responsibility as ability and experience warrant. It is our hope that not only will they be well prepared to take the American Board of Radiology (ABR) exams, but also that they will be lifelong learners who will be able to adapt well to future imaging methods in our ever-changing specialty.

YNHH's Residency Program in Diagnostic Radiology is offered through the NRMP and is approved by the ACGME for 55 residents. The program begins after a clinical internship in the United States, which may be done at Yale or elsewhere. There are several excellent internships in the greater New Haven area available separately through the NRMP.

After Graduation

We are extremely proud of Yale Diagnostic Radiology residency program and our residents - both current residents and past graduates. Our residents perform extremely well on the American Board of Radiology (ABR) exams. Another measure of our program is resident success obtaining desired fellowship training. Recent graduates secured fellowship positions at Yale Radiology, Duke, Massachusetts General Hospital, University of California San Francisco, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Hospital for Special Surgery, Cleveland Clinic, Stanford, Boston Children’s Hospital, University of Miami, Washington University, Beth Israel, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, University of California San Francisco, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Emery, and Cornell. Most recently, they have held faculty positions at Arizona-Barrow Neurological Institute and the Minnesota-Mayo Clinic.

Through the years about 30 percent of our graduates have joined academic practices and occupy faculty positions at some of the most prestigious institutions in the nation. The program director, Jamal Bokhari, MB, BS-MD, is very proud that several former residents have become residency program directors in academic institutions around the country.
