Graduate medical education in radiology at Mayo Clinic

Page Content


The four-year Diagnostic Radiology Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, provides clinical training in a dynamic department where faculty members are passionate and recognized for teaching.

As a resident, you learn radiology working side by side with outstanding clinicians, allied health staff, and management professionals.

In addition to Mayo Clinic's favorable faculty ratio and solid academic instruction, state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, and tremendous educational resources, many unique aspects of the program are designed to prepare you for a career in academic radiology or private practice.

A specially designed curriculum and thorough conference schedule ensure that you are amply prepared for board examinations. In addition, ample elective time is allowed in the fourth year of training to pursue specific clinical and research interests.

One individual in each class can opt to complete their interventional radiology training within Mayo Clinic's Florida campus, since our program offers Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) during the R-4 year. The Interventional Radiology Independent Residency will prioritize internal candidates for advanced placement into the program, which enables interested individuals to receive additional certification in interventional radiology with just one extra year of training after finishing the Diagnostic Radiology Residency.

After successfully completing the program, you will have become a highly qualified radiologist ready for the demands of a subspecialty fellowship, private practice, or academic practice.

Internal Medicine Preliminary Residency

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.

Program history

The Diagnostic Radiology Residency began with the first class in 2001. There are five residents in each class for a total of 20 residents. It is anticipated that five residents will complete training in the program annually.
