Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program
The American Board of Radiology requires five years of approved post-graduate training. The first year is a clinical year. The remaining four years must be spent in residency training in radiology or in one of its branches in an approved residency program.
The Texas A&M System Health Science Center College of Medicine - Scott & White Hospital Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We are unique in that we offer all five years in our program.
We accept seven new residents per year and currently have 33 residents on staff. Our faculty to resident ratio is greater than one to one, as residents and staff work closely together throughout the residency program.
Residents are allowed increasing independence as they advance through the residency. Active staff teaching and supervision are integrated throughout the program.
Residents participate in daily departmental conferences and also attend several interdepartmental conferences weekly. As residents gain experience and confidence, they present current cases during departmental conferences.
Clinically oriented research is also considered an integral part of training in diagnostic radiology at our institution. Ample opportunities are available for participation in clinical research and quality assurance/outcome studies. One or two months are dedicated toward this endeavor and there is abundant ancillary support and senior staff guidance on all research projects.
All PGY 2–4 residents participate in the American College of Radiology In-Training Examination each year during their residency education. At the conclusion of their training at Scott & White, residents are not only well-versed in all aspects of diagnostic radiology, but are also prepared to pursue fellowship training or begin private practice radiology. One hundred percent of our residents have passed the Board Examination of the American Board of Radiology for the past 23 years.
