Program Description

“First and Finest”

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) is the U.S. Navy’s oldest continuously running hospital (since 1830). Located in the Tidewater region of southeastern Virginia, the area is home to the majority of the Atlantic Fleet ships, aircraft, and personnel. We are functionally organized under the Defense Health Agency (DHA) and Naval Medical Forces Atlantic (NMFL) which include several joint service military hospitals, clinics, and other assets throughout the East Coast and beyond. We provide direct clinical support to several local branch clinics and operational units. Our closest regional military partners include 633d Medical Group – Joint Base Langley-Eustis and McDonald Army Health Center. We have academic affiliation with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS).

With nearly 180,000 enrolled local beneficiaries and our extended teleradiology capabilities, we are proudly the Navy’s largest volume radiology department. In 2023, NMCP was designated by the Commonwealth of Virginia and American College of Surgeons as a Level II Trauma center which allowed us to expand critical services beyond our military family to the regional civilian community. We are the Navy’s only Level II Trauma Center. The radiology department at NMCP is American College of Radiology (ACR) accredited in ultrasound, CT (including pediatric CT), and mammography. We are a proud supporter of Image Gently®.

The NMCP Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program is a four-year training program (PGY2 – PGY5), fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We train competent general radiologists who are well prepared for any future clinical and military service requirements, overseas assignments, deployments, and fellowship training. Our residents have a strong record of academic and professional success.
