From the Program Director
The Diagnostic Radiology Residency program at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas is designed to provide outstanding training in the many aspects of the clinical practice of radiology. We are 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.
We offer a collaborative team approach to advanced radiology training and patient care. Residents work at Baylor University Medical Center and other facilities alongside radiologists on the medical staff at Baylor, support staff and leadership.
Radiology training at Baylor offers:
- Diverse subspecialty training in all nine subspecialty areas of diagnostic radiology:
- Musculoskeletal radiology
- Vascular and interventional radiology
- Cardiothoracic radiology
- Breast radiology
- Abdominal radiology
- Pediatric radiology
- Ultrasonography (including obstetrical and vascular ultrasound)
- Nuclear radiology (including PET and nuclear cardiology)
- A wide range of pathology to investigate and study
- Experience in all aspects of transplant imaging, multiphase MR and CT imaging and invasive and noninvasive vascular procedures
- Advanced oncologic imaging including PET-CT imaging
- Highly collaborative relationships with referring physicians and other health care professionals
The Diagnostic Radiology department at Baylor University Medical Center performs about 475,000 exams per year, and Radiology residents participate in many of these cases. Baylor’s patient population has a balance of tertiary referral, private insurance, indigent care and transplant-related services.
Residents are active in clinical research and have won national accolades. Access to STATdx and RADPrimer is provided to our Radiology residents.
Our Diagnostic Radiology Residency program is approved for 28 residents and matches for seven each year. Five residents match as categorical residents who perform their internship at Baylor University Medical Center in internal medicine, and two match as advanced residents who match for a clinical internship at another institution or with another program at Baylor University Medical Center.
