Residents attend two conferences daily, from 7-8 AM and 12-1 PM. Every Thursday, the afternoon conference is 12-2 PM and covers important topics in radiology physics.

Residents also have scheduled conference time at the Simulation Center to practice procedural skills, communication skills, and management of contrast reactions under faculty supervision. BLS and ACLS review courses are offered annually.

In addition to scheduled conferences, residents participate in work rounds with the attending radiologists several times per day. Our residents have easy access to a department library. Dedicated learning funds are available to each resident to help cover books and away conferences.
