Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Lenox Hill Hospital
The Department of Radiology at Lenox Hill Hospital offers a four-year ACGME-accredited graduate training program in Diagnostic Radiology in a friendly and supportive environment. The residency program is accredited for 16 residency positions and accepts four residents per year. Educational training is primarily based at Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and Cohen Children’s Medical Center on Long Island. The Department of Radiology is affiliated with Northwell Health, New York state's largest healthcare provider, and the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. The department consists of 32 faculty members.
The educational program includes daily lectures from the attending radiology staff, monthly journal club and weekly interdisciplinary conferences with medicine, orthopedic surgery, pathology, nephrology, neurology, neurosurgery, ENT and surgery. There is also a yearly lecture series on radiation physics and radiobiology. Our departmental radiology library contains basic textbooks and computer facilities which supplement the extensive resources of the Health Sciences Library.
The first year of residency training introduces the core subspecialties of diagnostic radiology: neuroradiology, vascular and interventional radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, cardiothoracic radiology, abdominal imaging, pediatric radiology, ultrasonography, breast imaging and nuclear medicine. During the second and third years, residents are gradually given increased responsibilities in emergency radiology, advanced imaging and interventional procedures. The fourth year of residency allows the resident to pursue additional months of focused training or “mini- fellowships” in one or more of the subspecialties of particular interest. The resident will refine his or her skills as a diagnostic radiologist in preparation for fellowship or independent practice.
Scholarly activities are highly encouraged, and there is no shortage of opportunities. Each resident is required to complete one research project prior to graduation. Residents receive educational funding to attend and present at national meetings. All residents attend American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP).
The radiology department features 3.0 Tesla high field MRI, 64 and 256 channel CT, PET-CT, SPECT-CT, PACS, and separate inpatient and outpatient areas. The department currently performs nearly 200,000 exams annually and is growing. With our advanced technology and large case volumes, we offer an exceptional radiology educational experience between our radiology faculty and residents in a close setting.
A one-year ACGME-accredited internship is required prior to the four-year radiology residency.
