The four-year Diagnostic Radiology Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, is designed to prepare physicians for careers in academic radiology or private practice. The program offers:
- Ample, high-quality, hands-on clinical experience
- Solid academic instruction
- Multiple clinical research training options
- Gradually increasing independence and responsibility throughout the residency
Mayo's favorable faculty ratio, large patient population and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated educational experience. Our emphasis on education over service ensures that you have the finest teaching and the broadest patient care experience possible during your residency.
When you successfully complete the Diagnostic Radiology Residency, you will be a highly qualified radiologist ready for the demands of a subspecialty fellowship, private practice or academic practice.
In accordance with requirements submitted by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) for board eligibility, Mayo requires successful completion of a clinical year prior to commencing its four-year Diagnostic Radiology Residency. Matching to the specialty program includes a one-year Internal Medicine Preliminary Residency (PGY-1) available only for trainees who complete their residency training at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida.
The goal of the Internal Medicine Preliminary Residency is to provide a solid foundation for further training in anesthesiology, dermatology, neurology, radiation oncology and radiology advanced programs. The Internal Medicine Preliminary Residency is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Residents are included within the ACGME complement of the first year of the Internal Medicine Residency.
The Residency Review Committee for Diagnostic Radiology fully accredits the Diagnostic Radiology Residency.
Residents are required to pass the American Board of Radiology Core Exam in their third year of training. Resident graduates will then be eligible for the board's Certifying Exam approximately 15 months after completion of training.
The Diagnostic Radiology Residency began with the first class in 2001. There are four residents in each class for a total of 16 residents. It is anticipated that four residents will complete training in the program annually.
