Welcome from the director

We at the UMMC Department of Radiology's residency training program are dedicated to ensuring the best possible education for our residents.

Our large population base, sole Mississippi radiology training program status, modern equipment and supportive atmosphere are conducive to a well-balanced training experience. We encourage our residents and fellows to participate in a multitude of educational modalities, including funded AIRP course, on- and off-site research, journal publication, presentations and multi-specialty medical/surgical conference interaction.

Our training environment well prepares our graduating residents and fellows for any academic or private practice environment.

Welcome from the associate director

Welcome to the Department of Radiology at UMMC, the state's only academic health center.

Our departmental goals are threefold: education, patient care, and research. All residents are encouraged to participate in teaching, research, and educational activities, and time is provided for these purposes. Publications and presentations at university, state and national meetings are also encouraged. Our radiology program provides experience in general diagnostic radiology through multiple subspecialty areas and also includes focused training in general interventional radiology and neurointerventional procedures. In addition, training in radiation physics is provided throughout the academic year by our radiologic physics staff.

We take pride in the collaborative relationship between our faculty and residents. We enjoy where we work and what we do. Our residents graduate well prepared for any radiologic setting. If you have any questions regarding our program, please do not hesitate to contact us.
