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.

“One of the best parts of our program is that we can actually bring forth propositions for change and see them be implemented while we are still here.”

“We are a strong knit community here at OSU – both residents and faculty. When you’re being trained by the very best in the field, it’s a great feeling to know that faculty is always there for you.” 
- Priyanka Dubé, DO, Resident, Class of 2021

“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 Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute, the OSU Brain and Spine Hospital ,and OSU East Hospital), with pediatric radiology training provided at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. In addition, five ambulatory sites (CarePoint Gahanna, CarePoint Lewis Center, Carepoint East, The Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center, 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

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 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.

Didactic lectures are held on Tuesday mornings with dedicated protected time (i.e. resident responsibilities are transferred to attendings and fellows) between 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.. The didactic topics are coordinated into a prescribed 1.5 year curriculum so that each resident will be exposed to every lecture topic at least twice prior to the ABR Core Examination.

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:

Rotations

Rotations

Rotations

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.

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.

Application Process

How to Apply

How to Apply

Applications for the Interventional Radiology Residency Program are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service ERAS only. Please refer to ERAS or the contact person at your school to learn more about applying for residency.

ERAS is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and transmits residency applications, letters of recommendation, deans' letters, transcripts and other supporting credentials from medical schools to residency program directors. We do not require any additional documents beyond those required by the ERAS. The Department of Radiology participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). It is strongly encouraged to open an ERAS account as soon as possible and complete your application by the first of October.
