About the Program

Diagnostic radiology encompasses a variety of diagnostic and image-guided therapeutic techniques, including all modalities for radiological diagnosis including nuclear radiology, diagnostic ultrasound, magnetic resonance, computed tomography and body and vascular interventional procedures. The residency program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center offers a quality graduate medical educational experience of adequate scope and depth in both the clinical and technical aspects of each of these modalities. Our environment encourages interchange of knowledge and experience among residents and faculty in the program and with residents and faculty in other major clinical specialties throughout the health system.

Our Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program accepts five residents per year and is a four-year training program preceded by a mandatory clinical internship in either internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery or its subspecialties, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology, family practice, emergency medicine or an ACGME- or equivalent accredited transitional year. Ohio State also has an accredited Interventional Radiology-Integrated Residency Program, which accepts two residents per year. Because the first three years of this program are identical to the Diagnostic Program, there will be 21 residents for the first three years (seven residents per class) rotating together through the same rotations.

  • Image Title
    “It can be challenging at times being a radiology resident, but the faculty and staff at OSU give you everything you need to succeed and become an excellent radiologist. The case pathology is diverse and the daily lectures are exceptional. On the personal side, you have enough time outside of the hospital to recharge and have a normal social life. This will help you immensely over the four-year residency to help maintain your sanity and happiness.” 
    - Cliff Raymond, MD, Resident, Class of 2021

Our Mission

The Diagnostic Radiology Residency at The Ohio State University is committed to providing a well-rounded educational experience to residents in every aspect of diagnostic radiology. The program’s primary training site is The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (including University Hospital, The Ross Heart Hospital, The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and OSU East Hospital), with pediatric radiology training provided at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. In addition, six ambulatory sites (CarePoint Gahanna, CarePoint Lewis Center, Carepoint East, The Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center, Stoneridge Radiology and The Martha Morehouse Medical Plaza) supplement the clinical experience at our inpatient sites to provide each resident with the fundamental tools for a well-rounded education in radiology.


Academic Experience

Academic Experience

Academic Experience

The Radiology Residency Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has five residents per year starting in July, 2018 for a total of 21 residents. This is complemented by the IR residency, which accepts two residents per year, whose residents complete the same core rotations during the first three years of residency. Our residents work with approximately 70 subspecialty trained radiologists throughout their residency on their radiology rotations. The rotations are organ based and are in accordance with the separate sections of the American Board of Radiology examination.

The residency curriculum is guided by our new innovative iBook based iPad curriculum. Residents are provided with an iPad at the beginning of their residency with an iBook based curriculum created by our faculty for each subspecialty rotation. For each rotation, the iBook curriculum provides a day by day didactic guide, as well as links to relevant articles and book chapters. This allows our residents to monitor their daily progress, and ensures that they cover all the relevant subspecialty topics by the end of each rotation.

Daily didactic lectures are held at noon with dedicated protected time (i.e. resident responsibilities are transferred to attendings and fellows) between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to allow for preparation for the day’s lecture, review of the day’s iBook curriculum and uninterrupted lecture time. The didactics are coordinated into a prescribed two-year curriculum so that each resident will be exposed to every lecture topic at least once prior to the ABR Core Examination and be exposed to every lecture topic twice prior to graduation.

Program Highlights

Highlights of our program include:

  • Innovative iPad curriculum with daily iBook based didactics and readings for each rotation

  • 24-hour in-house attending coverage, including our emergency radiology attending faculty who read alongside the emergency department and night float residents providing 24-hour support and final interpretations

  • Four-year curriculum that emphasizes broad exposure and education prior to the core exam at the end of the PGY-4 year. There is also significant flexibility including five elective blocks and a six-block mini-fellowship throughout the four years. This flexibility allows interested residents to pursue the Clinical Interventional Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology Pathway as a part of their training

  • Pairing of lower level residents with upper level residents on call and overnight shifts. This system allows for support and guidance of junior level residents on call as they become more proficient and comfortable during their residency. This also gives the upper level residents a chance to mentor and teach

  • High available volume of complex and interesting cases. This allows the residents to select and view the best and optimal cases to maximize learning for their level of training. The responsibility to complete the daily clinical work is on our attending faculty, not the resident staff

  • Research opportunities are plentiful and may be pursued with either our radiology faculty and/or through the Wright Center of Innovation in Biomedical Imaging

Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) Curriculum

The Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) curriculum at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has been approved by the ACGME, and takes the place of our previously existing Interventional Radiology Clinical Pathway. The purpose of this program is to develop expertise in clinical management, in addition to providing an enhanced procedural experience. Participation in this program allows the resident to receive credit for the first year of the Interventional Radiology-Independent Program, thereby completing training in six years.

ESIR is not a separate residency – it is a restructuring of the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at Ohio State. This program is for applicants who are interested in interventional radiology, but will not be completing a dedicated interventional radiology residency. In the latter half of the first year of diagnostic radiology training, applications for the ESIR program are solicited from the R1 (PGY-2) residents. Those who apply will be interviewed by at least two interventional radiology faculty members. As many as two residents will be selected per year to participate in this program.

ESIR designated trainees rotate through several non-interventional radiology clinical rotations, to enhance the clinical development of a future interventional radiology physician. These rotations are sponsored by Ohio State's Departments of Medicine and Surgery (Medical Oncology, Surgical Oncology, MICU and Hepatology). In addition to these clinical rotations, an ESIR trainee will complete as many as 13 interventional radiology and IR-related rotations, including a rotation in pediatric interventional radiology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and a vascular surgery rotation with an affiliated physician in private practice.

Applying to either the preliminary medicine or preliminary surgery internships is suggested, but not required.

If you have any further questions, please contact current resident, Dr. Mina Makary at Mina.Makary@osumc.edu.


Why choose Ohio State for your residency?

Why choose Ohio State for your residency?

Experience first hand the advantages of the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. There are several benefits within our residency program that separate us from other residency programs, including:

iPad Curriculum

Each resident receives an iPad when they enter our program. We have implemented a defined course of study to prepare residents for the ABR Core Exam through daily iBook assignments. There is a dedicated assignment each day of each rotation for the first two years of residency. These assignments address all medical knowledge elements in the ABR Core Exam Study Guide, through native content and links to web-based content.

View a short demonstration on YouTube.


We recognize the important of medical imaging informatics in Radiology. Our trainees will have access to elective rotations and research experiences with our dedicated Informatics faculty at Ohio State.

Supplemental Resources

We offer many supplemental resources to our residents to complement learning at the workstation, such as subscriptions to StatDx, RadPrimer, Titan Radiology, and e-Anatomy.

Virtual Radiology Library

We offer a virtual library to our current trainees for radiology texts. This library includes textbooks available on Clinical Key (over 100 texts) as well as textbooks recommended by our residents and faculty members.

30-minute Study Time Before Each Noon Conference

This was created to give residents the ability to work on their iBook assignment or to prepare for the upcoming noon conference. The residents are protected from clinical work during this time, and an attending physician from each specialty is designated each day to cover the section for any emergencies.

Resident Cabinet

The residents of each class choose a representative. The Resident Cabinet meets weekly with the program director to discuss any issues happening “on the ground” in the program. This is a problem-solving workgroup, and is an important conduit of information between the residents and the program director.

No-Pull Policy

Residents are assigned to certain specialties to meet the educational objectives of the training program, and not to satisfy service needs. This is enforced by the program director who supports changes in resident deployment for educational purposes, and not for service purposes except in situations of unusual duress.




Our curriculum is divided into rotations of four week blocks of time. The curriculum for each block is tailored to the resident’s level of training and experience. Residents rotate through the various radiology subspecialties and work one-on-one with subspecialty trained attending radiologists, integrating a curriculum geared towards the new ABR Core Examination.

The cases that the residents are expected to interpret correspond to their level of training – lower level residents read more basic cases and modalities and upper level residents select or are assigned more advanced cases. The case volume available is high, and the complexity of cases (as a transplant center, tertiary care referral center and comprehensive cancer center) provides an outstanding environment for learning. The residents’ responsibility also is to choose cases that commiserate with their experience and background to maximize their education, i.e. particularly with regards to interventional cases. The attending radiologists provide case-by-case teaching at the workstations and are responsible for ensuring all clinical work is completed.

Emergency Department Shift

Our Emergency Department shift covers the Emergency Department from 5 p.m. – 2 a.m. Monday through Friday. Our night float shift covers the Emergency Department from 8 p.m. – 8 a.m. Sunday through Friday. The Emergency Department and night float residents work closely with our in house dedicated Emergency Department attending faculty who provide support and supervision while providing final reads overnight.

Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR)

Those residents who are in the Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) will use some of their elective time and mini fellowship time to gain clinical exposure relevant to the practice of interventional radiology, including additional months of IR rotation and rotations through clinical services such as oncology, vascular surgery or hepatology, among others.

Research Days

Our residents are given 30 days of time for research projects that can be taken in one-day increments. While on a research day, the resident is excused from other clinical duties and these days can be taken at any time throughout the four year residency (and is in addition to our yearly conference time and vacation time). This allows our residents to take days to prepare and perform research projects as needed throughout their residency.

Work Hours

Typical daily resident work hours:

8 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. – Read and review cases with an attending with teaching at the workstation

11:30 a.m. – noon – Time for review and preparation for that day’s noon conference and review of that day’s iBook curriculum (using attending and fellow pager/clinical coverage to eliminate interruptions)

Noon – 1 p.m. – Noon conference taught by one of our faculty radiologists (using attending and fellow pager/clinical coverage to eliminate interruptions)

1 p.m. – 5 p.m. – Read and review cases with an attending with teaching at the workstation

Resident Research

Resident Research

Our residents are given 30 days of time for research projects that can be taken in one-day increments. While on a research day, the resident is excused from other clinical duties and these days can be taken at any time throughout the four year residency (and is in addition to our yearly conference time and vacation time). This allows our residents to take days to prepare and perform research projects as needed throughout their residency. As an example, if a resident is notified that revisions are needed to an IRB, that resident can request a research day to meet the time sensitive deadline as needed.
