The University of Mississippi Medical Center Department of Radiology is committed to providing the highest quality education and training. From medical students to residents and fellows, learners follow a multidisciplinary and resource-rich curriculum that help them become future leaders in radiology and radiological sciences.
The department provides a comprehensive learning experience serving both adult and pediatric populations. We work to achieve the goal of superior resident training in radiology, as evidenced by faculty evaluations, excellent patient care, and exposure to 11 subspecialty areas coupled with an extensive physics curriculum.
In the School of Medicine, our faculty and residents take part in the training of medical students from the gross anatomy lab through their fourth year, with a clinical clerkship elective in radiology.
The American Board of Radiology requires five years of approved training with a minimum of four years in diagnostic radiology. The first must be an accredited clinical year in internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery or surgical specialties, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology, family practice, emergency medicine, or any combination of these. No more than two months may be spent in radiology, radiation oncology and/or pathology. All clinical training must be an ACGME, AOA, RCPSC or equivalent approved program.
There are opportunities for research, publication projects and national conference presentations. With access to more than 40 specialty-trained faculty supported by hundreds of highly trained technologists and support employees, our graduates will tell you they leave fully prepared for their chosen area of medicine.
