Welcome to the University of Tennessee/Methodist Healthcare Radiology Residency website
Our residents work at 5 hospitals with over 50 subspecialty-trained radiologists. Faculty from non-radiology departments of the University of Tennessee and Methodist Healthcare contribute to our educational program by offering instruction in their particular disciplines.
While a medieval apprenticeship to become a craftsman typically lasted from seven to ten years, a radiology residency is only a four-year process. This is a challenge as the resident must learn the subspecialty knowledge to serve as a consultant to a broad range of physicians and patients. This translates into a very busy training program including twice daily conferences, required reading, and online learning activities. However, the most important aspect of learning to be a radiologist is accomplished in the reading room. A majority of each day is spent reading cases with a radiologist.
While there are many changes taking place in the national environment of residency education, our guiding principles include providing excellent patient care, developing comprehensive radiology education, and maintaining a satisfying work environment.
Thank you for visiting our program on the web. Please explore the website to find out more about our program, the residents, and Memphis.
