Radiology Residency Program at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine

Medical training is a period of rigorous development. Striking a balance between your personal and professional responsibilities is essential to your success. We encourage residents to take part in the many cultural and entertainment offerings in New York City and Long Island.

Housing

There is limited on-campus housing available and stipends for those who live off-campus. Housing is not available to Northwell Health fellows. There are many services to assist in finding apartments around your training hospital, including Street EasyCurbed, and Trulia.

Living in the New York-metro area is expensive. In considering a move to New York it is important to weight the cost of living against the many educational and cultural advantages of living here. The following lists average estimated monthly living expenses based upon reasonable expenditures. You may incur additional expenses that are not covered, such as the purchase of a computer, medical expenses not covered by insurance or conference expenses.

Benefits

We offer one of the most competitive benefits programs in the nation. Members of the house staff have a choice of plans under medical, dental, vision, supplemental short-term disability, long-term disability, supplemental life insurance/accidental death and dismemberment, and flexible spending accounts. All plans are eligible on the first date of employment, and the cost of coverage is largely employer-subsidized. In addition, the following are provided to members of the house staff:

  • Employer-paid Basic Life Insurance/AD&D at 1½ times pay up to $500,000
  • Salary continuation during disability for up to 12 weeks and 50 percent Short-Term Disability thereafter at no cost to the employee
  • 60 percent Long-Term Disability provided at no cost to the employee

Members of the house staff are entitled to 20 days of paid time off (PTO) each contract year. These 20 days must be used during the period covered by the contract and may not be carried into subsequent years.

Work-life balance

Maintaining a healthy balance between work, study, and non-radiology related activities is something we strive to achieve.

Residents routinely meet up outside the reading room, whether this involves informal events at local bars/restaurants, residency sponsored barbecues, or boot camp fitness hour versus the yearly annual first year welcome dinner, holiday party and graduation dinner.

About half of the residents live either in the Northwell Health housing or immediate local vicinity and the other half lives in the surrounding community and five boroughs.

Many of the residents have gone to medical school in the tristate area or have lived in the tristate area for a significant portion of their lives, but you will find the occasional Californian or Texan at the reading stations.

Current residents

The residents in the radiology program at Northwell Health come to us from a variety of medical schools. Following graduation, they have gone on to excellent fellowship positions.
