There are 13 blocks in each academic year; each block is 4 weeks in length. The above is a representative of the rotations for each year of training.
One block during PGY-4 year is reserved for AIRP conference attendance.
With the exception of one required Emergency/Call rotation all rotations during PGY-5 year are elective and may be customized to the residents subspecialty interests as long as it does not interfere with rotation schedule of other resident class requirements.
We hold conferences daily at noon as well as morning conferences Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Most lectures are recorded and made available for viewing by residents unable to attend conference or for future reference by residents and attendings. Conference types include the following:
Didactic Lectures: Didactic lectures will be provided by subspecialized faculty members on a 24 month cycle. Subspecialties include Body Imaging (GI/GU), Cardiothoracic, Emergency Imaging, Interventional Radiology, Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology, Nuclear Medicine/PET, Pediatric Imaging, Ultrasound, and Women's Imaging.
Case Conference: Interesting and educational cases will be presented by residents and subspecialized faculty followed by interactive discussions on findings, differential diagnoses, and recommendations.
Medical Physics: Formal instruction in medical physics will be provided by dedicated, in-house medical physicist twice a week during morning lectures. Didactic training will include, but is not limited to, radiologic and nuclear medicine physics, radiation biology and protection, I-131 therapy requirements, as well as radiation and MRI safety. Additionally, residents will learn:
- Guidelines and effective communication concerning imaging appropriateness and safety issues
- Enhancement of patient safety and improvement of patient care quality through quality improvement projects
- Assessment, development and implementation imaging guidelines
- Protocol selection and optimizations of images
- Participation in identifying system errors through quality assessment projects and then implementing potential system solutions
Journal Club: Once a month, residents, along side an attending radiologist, will take turns presenting a recently published journal article of their choosing followed by a critical evaulation via interactvie discussion.
Grand Rounds: Several times each academic year we host visiting radiology professors from across the country to present conferences on topics specific to their field. It is a great opportunity for our residents to learn from and interact with some of the greatest minds radiology has to offer.

Jeopardy & Family Feud: Frequently, attending radiologists will present cases in a Jeopardy or Family Feud style format. Residents will split into teams with equal class representation and compete for the greatest prizes outside of a Starbucks gift card; family honor, peer recognition, and shame avoidance.
