Total positions offered: 16

The Department of Radiology of Lenox Hill Hospital is accredited by the ACGME for a graduate training program in Diagnostic Radiology. Candidates are required to have five years of approved training with a minimum of four years in diagnostic radiology. The other year must be ACGME-accredited education in internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery or a surgical subspecialty, ob/gyn, neurology, family practice, emergency medicine, or any combination of these.

The Radiology Department features 3.0 Tesla High field MRI, 64 and 256 Channel CT, PET-CT, SPECT-CT, PACS, and separate inpatient and outpatient areas. The Department currently performs nearly 200,000 exams annually and is growing.

The educational program includes daily lectures from the Department of Radiology attending staff, combined lectures with other major departments at the Hospital (e.g., Medicine, Orthopaedic Surgery, Pathology, Nephrology and Surgery), a monthly journal club, and a departmental radiology library containing basic textbooks and computer facilities which supplements the extensive resources of the Health Sciences Library.

The first three years of residency training include rotations through the core subspecialties of radiology in preparation for the Core Exam. These core rotations include neuroradiology, vascular and interventional radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, cardiothoracic radiology, abdominal radiology, pediatric radiology, ultrasonography (including obstetric and vascular ultrasonography), breast imaging and nuclear radiology (including PET and nuclear cardiology).

The fourth year of residency will allow the resident to pursue additional months of focused training in one or more of the subspecialties of particular interest to them. The resident will refine his/her skills as a diagnostic radiologist in preparation for fellowship or independent practice and have the opportunity to participate in teaching and research activities.

In each of the four years there will be a series of lectures on radiation physics and radiobiology. In addition, a third or fourth-year resident is appointed chief resident, with the additional supervisory and administrative duties associated with the position.

Completion of the four-year graduate training program in Diagnostic Radiology meets the formal requirements of the American Board of Radiology for board eligibility in that specialty.
