Radiology Residency

 

Introduction

The Radiology Residency Program is a fully accredited program leading to eligibility by the American Board of Radiology. The ‎‎radiology residency is a four-year program. Residents are usually accepted via the Match in the Supplemental Position format. Current fourth-year medical students would apply to both our Supplemental positions (NRMP Program Code 298062) and to a Preliminary year of their choice. Special arrangements have been made to give priority to our applicants for entry into the Transitional Residency at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News, VA or the Internal Medicine Preliminary Program at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

History and General Description

Radiology residencies existed in Norfolk General Hospital and DePaul Hospital for many years before the creation of Eastern Virginia Medical School. In 1977, the programs were combined and became affiliated with the Medical School. Now, more than 20 years later, the residency is an integrated training program based at three major teaching hospitals:

  • Sentara Norfolk General Hospital,

  • Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters, and

  • Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center

Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters are the major tertiary referral and trauma centers for a metropolitan area of approximately 1.6 million people. Residents also rotate through Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center and Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital. These institutions perform a total of approximately 210,000 diagnostic examinations per year.

The combined faculty includes over sixty radiologists with sub-specialists in neuroradiology, angiography, pediatric radiology, ultrasound, nuclear medicine (including PET), chest, GU, GI, musculoskeletal radiology, mammography, body CT scanning, and MRI. Procedural experience includes interventional and neurointerventional radiology and a variety of guided biopsies, aspirations, and drainages. The opportunities for hands-on experience and direct faculty-resident contact are exceptional.
