Of primary importance in this program are the two daily teaching conferences provided by the Radiology faculty directed solely for radiology resident education. An 11:30 a.m. didactic conference which is conducted by faculty on a rotating basis covers all of the major subspecialties in Diagnostic Radiology. A 12:30 p.m. film review conference follows which is also conducted by the faculty. Physics, radiobiology and radiation protection are taught in the physics course which is a series of lectures/problem sessions conducted weekly from January through September. In addition, a daily conference is held in angiography at 7:30 a.m. at which time cases for the day are presented and the preceding day's cases are reviewed under the direction of faculty.
All residents attend the four week Radiology-Pathology Course at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington D.C., usually in their third year of residency. The department pays tuition, airfare, and a cost of living stipend.
