Training & Education
The Department fosters an innovative approach to education and research in state-of-the-art facilities
About Training & Education
Education at the Department of Radiology is superb at all levels. The department has clinical facilities at LAC+USC Medical Center, Keck Hospital of USC, Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as an on-campus outpatient imaging facility, a PET center, and a small animal imaging center for training in both clinical and research settings.
Educational opportunities include the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program and nine specialized fellowship programs supporting eighteen positions. The department also supports medical rotations, selectives, and clerkships for non-USC students, as well as individually tailored subspecialty elective rotations.
The department supports an elective for 3rd and 4th year medical students in diagnostic radiology, an elective in neuroradiology as well as in nuclear medicine, and a radiology clerkship for non-USC students. In addition, our department can support individually tailored subspecialty elective rotations. Approximately 80 – 100 medical students per year participate in these rotations.
The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program provides a breadth and depth of pathology that can only be found in a large culturally diverse urban university medical center. Residents are afforded autonomy and independence within the structure of a clinical care system. A multitude of research opportunities and financial support allow residents to present their work at major national radiology meetings.
The department supports eighteen fellowship positions. Fellowships offered include ACGME-approved one-year programs in Interventional Radiology and Neuroradiology. Other fellowships include Nuclear Medicine, PET, Musculoskeletal Radiology, Body Imaging and Intervention, Cardiothoracic Imaging and Intervention and Women’s Imaging.
