Residency Program Director
Assistant Program Director
As a Diagnostic Radiology resident at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, you will be part of a team of resident and attending radiologists who interpret nearly a million 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 match through the NRMP into our program as one of seven residents per year to be part of a program approved for 28 total residents. Five residents will enter the categorical track who perform their internship at Baylor Dallas in internal medicine. The other two enter the advanced track who must complete their clinical internship elsewhere prior to starting residency with us.
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.
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

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.

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:
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 interventions

venous access procedures
CT, ultrasound and fluoro-guided biopsies and drainage
As an ESIR resident, you will perform well over 500 procedures during your four years.
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.
