RESIDENCY IN RADIOLOGY
UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA
DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM
The Radiology residency is a three-year program that fulfills the training guidelines of the American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) and the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (ECVDI). The qualifying part of the examination will be taken at the end of the 2nd year of formal training and the certifying examination in September of 2014. The training includes formal course work and clinical experience in large and small animal diagnostic radiology, ultrasound and other modalities such as X-ray computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology. Following completion of the program, the resident should be qualified to take the ACVR and ECVDI certification examination.
For a more detailed description of the residency program:
The major responsibility of the resident is to assist in the imaging work-up and treatment of patients under the supervision of the radiology faculty. The resident also instructs the veterinary students and interns in the clinic. Residents will assume increasing responsibility for diagnostic and therapeutic services throughout the program. Residents participate in radiology and other rounds with faculty. Residents work with six faculty members: three are diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Radiology; two are diplomates of both the American College of Veterinary Radiology and the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (ECVDI); one additional radiology faculty is on the team.
Currently, there is no Pennsylvania State licensure requirement. Health and professional liability insurance are provided. The resident must be able to work in the hospital on all days and times of the week. There is a two-week vacation annually.
To be eligible for the program, a candidate must have satisfactorily completed one year of large or small animal internship or have other equivalent clinical experience. The applicant must submit a completed application form, curriculum vitae, personal statement of his/her background and reasons for applying for a radiology residency, a transcript of veterinary school record, and a minimum of three letters of recommendation from senior clinical instructors or veterinarians who are familiar with your clinical abilities and knowledgeable about your career interests and goals. While an interview is not required, it is recommended in order to become more fully informed about our program, and should be scheduled in the Fall.
