  • 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 which allows our residents 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
    • All residents taking the Core Exam are temporarily removed from the call pool approximately two months prior to the test date
    • R4 call is less frequent, allowing for more¬†elective time/mini-fellowships

    First call

    • Five night modified float system.
    • The¬†initial four months of first call are split between the R1 and R2 classes, after which the R1 class covers all of the first call for 8 months
