The Residency Program in Diagnostic Radiology at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center is dedicated to providing comprehensive, in-depth, and hands-on experience in all aspects of radiologic technique and practice.
A broad range of cases are available at Illinois Masonic, a 408-bed tertiary care hospital located in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. The hospital is one of four Level 1 trauma centers in Chicago and residents are able to participate in the care of a wide variety of acutely injured patients. Over 100,000 annual exams are performed with our state-of-the-art equipment, including CT, MRI, PET/CT, SPECT, ultrasound and IR.
The Residency in Diagnostic Radiology is accredited by the ACGME for 12 residents (3 per class). As there are no fellows, the residents gain first-hand exposure to the best cases and techniques, including those typically reserved for fellows in university programs.
Our teaching faculty of 12 attending radiologists is dedicated to the education of the residents through didactic lectures, dedicated viewbox/PACS teaching sessions, and case-by-case readouts throughout the day.
Additional experience in pediatrics is provided by three months of training at Lurie Children's Hospital (associated with Northwestern University). Residents also spend one month at Loyola University’s Department of Nuclear Medicine.
Participation in research and policy is encouraged, with funding available for residents presenting papers and educational posters at conferences. Most residents participate in committees and quality improvement projects at Illinois Masonic and across all Advocate health care system.
Our four-year residency program includes extensive exposure to both the common and extraordinary cases; our residency graduates are thus ideal candidates for both clinical and academic practice settings.
