Radiology Educational Programs

The University of Mississippi Medical Center Department of Radiology is committed to providing the highest quality education and training to all learners. From medical students to residents and fellows, our multidisciplinary and resource-rich curriculum helps us prepare future leaders in the field of Radiology and Radiological Sciences.

UMMC's Department of Radiology provides a comprehensive learning experience serving both the adult and pediatric populations. We work to achieve the goal of superior resident training in Radiology, as evidenced by faculty evaluations, excellent patient care, and exposure to 11 subspecialty areas coupled with an extensive physics curriculum.

The American Board of Radiology requires five (5) years of approved training with a minimum of four (4) years in diagnostic radiology.

The first year of training must be an accredited clinical year in internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery or surgical specialties, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology, family practice, emergency medicine, or any combination of these. No more than a total of two months may be spent in radiology, radiation oncology and/or pathology. All clinical training must be an ACGME, AOA, RCPSC or equivalent approved program.

There are opportunities for research, publication projects, and national conference presentations. With over 40 specialty-trained faculty, supported by hundreds of highly trained technologists and support employees, our graduates will tell you they leave here knowing they are fully prepared for their chosen area of medicine.
