The UT Graduate School of Medicine four-year diagnostic radiology residency program accepts six PGY-2 residents per year. The Transitional Year Residency Program at UTGSM has four dedicated PGY-1 TY resident positions available to accepted diagnostic radiology residents interested in completing all five years of residency in Knoxville at UTGSM. One resident position is planned to become a dedicated six-year Interventional Radiology Residency, which will include a surgical intern year in partnership with the Department of Surgery at UTGSM.
The radiology residency program is structured to introduce each subdivision of radiology, with specific rotations in services dedicated to body, chest, musculoskeletal, and neuro-imaging, nuclear medicine, fluoroscopy, mammography, emergency medicine, and interventional radiology, along with pediatric rotations at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in partnership with the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital in Nashville. Basic understanding of individual techniques is emphasized, followed by hands-on experience designed to allow the resident increasingly greater responsibilities as the training program progresses.
In addition to conventional diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine, training is offered in computer science, related imaging technologies, angiography, and vascular and interventional radiology. A dedicated radiology physics course provides first year residents with the necessary physics foundation required of all radiologists, with topics specifically designed to prepare residents for the American Board of Radiology Core Exam.op
The Department of Radiology's equipment is housed in a 43,000-square-foot facility.
The department employs approximately 150 technical and support personnel.
