Word from the Residency Program Director

The Diagnostic Radiology residency program at the University of North Carolina provides outstanding clinical radiology training and ample opportunities for residents to engage in academic research. Resident instruction is accomplished through supervised "hands-on" performance of radiologic procedures, PACS workstation teaching sessions, conference case presentations and discussion, and didactic lectures. Electronic teaching aids and computerized teaching files are also utilized. Our residents routinely perform well on the American Board of Radiology exams, and are successful in acquiring great fellowships and jobs. In our training, we seek the perfect balance between clinical and didactic teaching, between independent decision-making and supervision, and between serious clinical work and a fun, pleasant working environment. Our department has modern imaging equipment and completely electronic medical records and PACS system. The many clinical and research activities of the Department take place in a very friendly, collegial environment that is conducive to both personal and professional growth. We take great pride in making each resident an integral part of the radiology "family." I hope that you will take the time to visit our Department and meet our wonderful group of residents, faculty and staff.
