Program Description

The Naval Medical Center San Diego Diagnostic Radiology residency program is a four-year residency program, fully accredited by the ACGME. The mission of the program is to provide the highest quality medical care to the Navy community by developing and graduating broadly trained, clinically capable, board-eligible Diagnostic Radiologists who are prepared to serve in the diverse clinical environments of Navy Medicine.

The program consists of four years of radiology training under the mentorship of clinical experts with varied subspecialty backgrounds. Additionally, residents are afforded the opportunity to pursue clinical research and other academic interests in tandem with staff Radiologists.

Most of the clinical rotations are completed at Naval Medical Center San Diego, a premier military medical facility caring for a diverse patient base. These clinical experiences are supplemented with opportunities at other civilian institutions within the city. The broad training experience provides a case mix of appropriate complexity in the context of a supportive learning environment. Residents may also have opportunities to participate in global humanitarian medical experiences.

Our faculty is composed of both military and civilian Radiology experts with diverse specialty backgrounds. Faculty work in tandem with residents, allowing adequate time for teaching and mentoring, both with clinical work and with academic pursuits. Graduates of our residency proceed to a variety of renowned fellowship opportunities, positions at major academic centers, practice positions at a variety of military hospitals and are poised for a successful career in military and civilian Radiology.
