Curriculum

Curriculum

The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at Case Western Reserve University is four years in length. Our curriculum is designed to offer comprehensive training in all radiology subspecialty divisions and help residents achieve their professional career goals.

All rotations are completed at either University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center (UHCMC) or the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center located less than one mile away from UHCMC. A diverse patient mix at these institutions provides residents with exposure to a variety of radiological pathologies and procedures.

The academic year is divided into 13 four-week rotations. Residents rotate through all diagnostic radiology subspecialties/board exam areas during the course of their residency including:

  • Neuroradiology
  • Musculoskeletal radiology
  • Chest/cardiac imaging
  • Body imaging (Gastroenterology/Genitourinary)
  • Ultrasound
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Breast/Mammography
  • Pediatric imaging
  • Angiography/Interventional
  • Outpatient imaging

Call Responsibilities

One junior and one senior resident are on call every night. We utilize a modified block call system which averages to 1 out of 10 nights. Junior call begins after one full year of radiology training and there is no call scheduled prior to board examinations. There is always a 24-hour in-house attending, 24-hour ultrasound technologist coverage, and sub-specialty attending backup overnight.
