Fellowship opportunities

The Department of Radiology offers a Neuroradiology fellowship program. Fellows rotate on 13 four-week blocks through clinical services at UMMC, home to Mississippi's only children's hospital and level 1 trauma center. There is dedicated exposure to all aspects of diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology, including: brain imaging, pediatric neuroimaging, head, neck and spine imaging, and interventional procedures. Visit Neuroradiology Fellowship for more information.

Call information

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.

Work-life balance scheduling

We offer scheduling that helps you maintain work-life balance, splitting your energy between work and other important aspects of your life. Even when our residents aren't working, they still like to spend time together. Click here to view the residents event page.

Away conference

Attendance at the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) four-week course in Silver Spring, MD, is expected of the radiology residents. The Department of Radiology provides registration, travel and lodging for the resident. The residency program coordinator arranges scheduling for this course. In most cases, residents attend this course during their R3 year.

Attendance of other conferences is encouraged. In an effort to promote resident research and academics and foster attendance and experience at national conferences, the program provides partial to full reimbursement for other conferences attended by residents
