Joining Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas

Radiology Residency Program    

When you join our residency program, you will join a team of resident and attending radiologists at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas where the Radiology Imaging Department performs nearly 500,000 exams per year. You will see a mix of patients from tertiary referral, private insurance, indigent care and elite athletes, and you will have access to cutting-edge oncology care and nationally recognized transplant services.

 

You will train in the many outstanding aspects of clinical radiology in a medium-sized residency training program that is large enough to absorb the impact of night and weekend responsibilities but small enough to provide one-on-one attention for each resident in our training program.

 

You will be one of 28 residents from the national match for seven residents each year. Five residents match as categorical residents who perform their internship at Baylor Dallas in internal medicine, and two match as advanced residents who match for a clinical internship at another institution or with another program at Baylor Dallas.

 

You will be poised to begin an academic and/or private practice career after pursuing competitive local and/or national fellowships, like our previous Radiology residents.

 

Academics

You will thrive in a culture of very active scholarly pursuits including journal publications, presentations at national meetings and online content creation.

 

Opportunities for Quality Improvement projects and leadership roles in the hospital setting abound.

 

Our residents have achieved national accolades including: 

  • JT Rutherford Fellowship at the American College of Radiology Headquarters governmental relations office
  • Texas Radiological Society Legislative and Government Relations Fellowship
  • International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) Best Poster
  • American Institute of Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) Best Case Winners
  • RSNA Cum Laude
  • RSNA Excellence in Design
  • RSNA Certificate of Merit
  • Three-time winner of the Vydareny Imaging Interpretation Competition at the Association of University Radiologists Annual Meeting

 

We have a 100% pass rate on both the American Board of Radiology (ABR) CORE exam and the ABR Certifying exam with Authorized User Eligibility.

 

Radiology Fellowships offered at Baylor Dallas include:

  • Breast Imaging
  • Body Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Molecular Imaging
  • Vascular and Interventional Radiology

 

Training

You will train in a “Hands-on” and high volume practice setting.

 

Early experience in radiology rotations is built into the Internal Medicine internship year for the five Categorical Track residents who match into our program through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Two months of the intern year will be spent on radiology rotations.

 

The two Advanced Track residents will receive an introductory basic training rotation at the beginning of R1 to ease transition into the program.

  • Night float call system pairs an upper level resident (R3 or R4) with a lower level resident
  • Dedicated time is allotted for senior (R4) mini-fellowships
  • Faculty are fellowship-trained in all subspecialties of radiology
  • Faculty come from geographically diverse training backgrounds

 

Unique Experience

You will appreciate what makes Baylor Dallas special including:

  • Level 1 Trauma Center
  • Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute is an internationally renowned destination for transplant care performing lung, heart, pancreas, liver and kidney transplants
  • Baylor T. Boone Pickens Cancer Hospital and Sammons Outpatient Cancer Center
  • Comprehensive Stroke Certification
  • Generous funding for American Institute of Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) and first-authored scholarly activity/research presentations
  • Hybrid Practice setting that includes a quaternary academic medical center and robust subspecialty private practice allowing for a “best of both worlds” training experience
  • Large outpatient imaging volumes to allow for subspecialty radiology training and experience
  • Highly collaborative relationships with referring physicians and other health care professionals
  • Centralized PACS reading for state-wide outpatient coverage
  • Four-year Nuclear Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology Dual Certificate Program
  • Molecular Imaging with Precision Medicine fellowship
  • Access to STATdx and RADPrimer provided to all trainees
  • Business of Radiology curriculum

 

Interventional Experience

at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas

As a resident in our program, you will have the opportunity to enter the ACGME-approved pathway of early specialization in interventional radiology (ESIR). Our Interventional Radiologists drive a very busy service covering our main hospital at Baylor Dallas, and a growing service at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center – Waxahachie, which is approximately 30 miles south of Baylor Dallas. The case load will include both vascular and non-vascular work.

 

Highlights in case variety include:

  • Interventional oncology procedures, including:

o   Chemoembolization

o   Radioembolization

o   Radiofrequency ablations

o   Microwave ablations

  • Level 1 Trauma Center cases provide urgent trauma interventions experience
  • Comprehensive Stroke Certification status provides opportunity for neuro-interventional radiology procedures
  • Internationally renowned destination for transplant care offers opportunity for full spectrum of transplant hepatobiliary procedures
  • Arterial and venous angiography/intervention procedures
  • Venous access procedures
  • Non-vascular intervention procedures
  • CT, ultrasound and fluoro-guided biopsies

 

As an ESIR resident, you will perform well over 500 procedures during your four years.

 

Collaboration

You will be part of a collaborative team approach to advanced radiology training and patient care. Residents work at Baylor Dallas and other facilities alongside radiologists on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White, support staff and leadership.
