Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Staten Island University Hospital
At the Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Staten Island University Hospital, residents are exposed to a comprehensive curriculum and rotate through all subspecialties of radiology. To prepare residents for the American Board of Radiology (ABR) core exam, we have revamped our core curriculum to encompass all subspecialties within radiology in the first 36 months of residency. The fourth year serves as an elective year, or "mini-fellowship" year. The first-year resident schedule is focused on mastering the core curriculum necessary to prepare for independent call.
Residents attend American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) for one month. Research is strongly encouraged, and there is no shortage of opportunities. Each resident is required to complete one research project prior to graduation. If a resident is presenting a poster or presentation at a conference, the hospital will pay for all expenses.
