Dear prospective resident,
The Drexel University College of Medicine Radiology Residency program is a four-year ACGME-accredited training period in diagnostic radiology. The program extends from PGY-2 through PGY-5 levels. An ACGME-approved clinical PGY-1 is necessary before beginning radiology training. Please refer to the internal medicine residency program for further information on our preliminary year.
This program provides experience in general diagnostic radiology through subspecialty areas of pulmonary, abdominal, emergency, neurological, musculoskeletal, and pediatric radiology. There is focused training in general interventional radiology (IR) and neurointerventional (NIR) procedures. In addition, training in radiation physics is provided throughout the academic year.
All trainees are encouraged to participate in research activities, and time is provided for this purpose. Publication and presentation are also encouraged. The wide range of pathology encountered by trainees, as well as the input from research-oriented faculty, can provide valuable source material. Appropriate responsibilities are available for procedures, film interpretations, teaching and consultation as the resident progresses through the program. A faculty of full- and part-time radiologists with subspecialty expertise in their respective areas participates in supervision, teaching, and research.
Our diagnostic radiology program also offers a special pediatric radiology pathway administered jointly with St. Christopher's Hospital for Children. This track is designed for those trainees interested in concentrating on pediatric radiology long-term, adapted from our former PEDRAP curriculum. Our current pediatric radiology pathway allows one trainee per class, focused training in pediatric radiology, which includes 16 blocks of dedicated pediatric radiology during the course of their four-year residency.
