The residency maintains dedicated network storage of extensive review material, books, presentations, lectures, and other media.
Each resident attends the four-week American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) course in Silver Spring, MD. The course registration fees are fully funded by the program and residents receive a stipend that can fully cover their living expenses.
All of our residents participate in a Medical Student Teaching Program. We usually have four visiting medical students per month. Two dedicated student lectures are given per week, and students may attend all resident conference as well.
All talks are based upon current ACR appropriateness criteria, and provide training clinicians with the information to order appropriate studies and utilize our department effectively. We also provide all attendees with a "Pocket Guide to Radiology."
All Residents are required to participate in Research during their residency. They are encourage to enter the SJMO annual "Hospital Research Day," and are encouraged to participate in National Conferences (RSNA, RRSA) as well. R2-R4 residents receive a month of Academic / Research time each year where they may develop and work on a project.
