Diagnostic Radiology & Integrated IR Residency Programs

On behalf of the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, welcome to our radiology residency website. Thank you for your interest in our program.

We accept 13 residents per year, 10 residents in diagnostic radiology (DR) and 3 residents in the combined UT/MD Anderson Integrated IR residency which is sponsored by UT-Houston. Our main teaching hospitals include Memorial Hermann Hospital- Texas Medical Center (MHH-TMC), LBJ General Hospital (LBJ) and MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC). We are also affiliated with Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH). We have approximately 110 faculty members. Residents are exposed to a large variety of cases and experience imaging in the inpatient, outpatient and emergency settings. We have a Trauma Level 1 Emergency Department at MHH-TMC, and a top cancer center at MDACC. Our location in the Texas Medical Center, the largest in the world, provides a unique training experience with access to numerous faculty, resources, and research opportunities. Houston is a large metropolitan city and its diversity provides the opportunity for variety and ample volumes.

Teaching and a quality education are fundamental to our mission. Residents attend daily noon conferences, which are led by faculty in all radiologic subspecialties. We have a comprehensive Physics curriculum and didactic series. Residents participate in multidisciplinary conferences, receive one-on-one teaching from faculty, and learn how to teach others. Our first-year residents attend the Fundamentals of Radiology course, which occurs every Wednesday afternoon throughout the first year, to learn the basics of imaging and to prepare them for call. Under the guidance of a mentor, all residents participate in scholarly activities and quality assurance projects. The program subsidizes and provides a stipend for the 4-week elective at the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) in Washington DC. We offer an Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) program during the senior year.  Senior residents may also select the MDACC Resident Research Pathway to focus on a research project during their final year of residency.  We also offer the 16-month pathway for dual certification in Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology. Residents receive excellent preparation for the American Board of Radiology examinations.

We have a dynamic program. Our graduates are proficient in all areas of radiology, ready to work independently and have the skills to succeed in any fellowship or practice setting.
