  • 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. The call schedule for all residents taking the Core Exam is temporarily reduced in the months leading up to the test date. Call during the final year of residency is less frequent, allowing for more elective time/mini-fellowships. Most residents agree that our call system is one of our best attributes.
