Rotations

Resident rotations take place in three main hospitals: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital.

Clinical rotations are divided into two to six week blocks covering a wide range of radiology subspecialties. The first half of the first year is focused on core rotations, with the latter half of the year expanding to include procedural skills as part of the adult fluoroscopy and interventional radiology rotations. While the goal is to maximize exposure to as many subspecialty fields as possible, specific emphasis is placed in preparing first-year residents for independent call.

As residents progress through the program, advanced imaging techniques are introduced with the interpretation of: body, musculoskeletal, and cardiac MRI ; neuro MRI/MRA (including perfusion imaging); nuclear medicine (including PET, PET-CT, and cardiac); and breast imaging.

Residents in their their PGY-4 year attend the four-week American Institute for Radiographic Pathology (AIRP) course in Washington DC. The final PGY-5 year is tailored to be more subspecialized for individual resident goals, structured as 3-6 month "mini fellowships" within various specialties of choice and/or dedicated research time.
