Your call schedule is different for each rotation. Mayo Clinic follows the recommendations of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
Clinical conferences, formal courses, seminars, small discussion groups, journal clubs, and one-on-one instruction are all an integral part of the residency.
Opportunities are available for you to teach rotating residents and medical students through daily clinical work and formal didactic lectures.
To ensure that you acquire adequate knowledge and develop the appropriate technical skills to meet program expectations, your performance is monitored carefully during the Diagnostic Radiology Residency. You are formally evaluated by supervising faculty members after each clinical rotation. In addition, you regularly evaluate the faculty to confirm that your educational needs are being met.
