Education and research 

    ​

The curriculum for the four-year residency is tailored to provide the highest level of training and patient care.  The first year (PGY-1) lays the groundwork for the basics in general radiography and fluoroscopy. During the second, third and fourth years residents are given gradually increased responsibilities. Residents are encouraged to take on research projects in general radiography and fluoroscopy because of the high number of patients encountered.

The residents rotate in general radiography and fluoroscopy sections for one month during which they are assessed based on their knowledge and skills from the reports and the procedures done. Monthly assessment is additionally done using a mini image interpretation exercise and from the mast forms.
