Program Structure

The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at Albany Medical Center is designed to provide a balance of supervised case interpretation, independent learning, didactic lectures, research opportunities, and patient care.  All this is done in the context of the six competencies mandated by the ACGME: patient care, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, practice-based learning and improvement, and systems-based practice. Ultimately, these competencies insure that we produce radiologists who are knowledgeable and compassionate care givers, who have developed the tools to continue learning and growing throughout their careers, and who are enthusiastic participants in the health care system.  Upon completion of our program, residents will have acquired substantial medical and radiologic knowledge and the skills to apply this knowledge to all aspects of the daily practice of radiology.
