  • Call Information

    The Department of Radiology residency program uses a two-tier call system.

    • Completely resident managed, each class schedules their own call shifts.
    • Front-loaded call system allows our residents to get up to speed quickly with "bread and butter" type exams and also allows for a lighter call schedule during Core Exam preparation.
    • Most residents agree that our call system is one of our best attributes.
    • The call schedule for all residents taking the Core Exam is temporarily reduced about two months prior to the test date.
    • R4 call is less frequent, allowing for more elective time/mini-fellowships.
