Department of Radiology Residency Program
Our radiology residents train at a vibrant, dynamic institution offering diverse pathology and dedicated caring faculty in a livable and family-friendly environment. Alumni from our well-rounded program are highly coveted, easily adapting to either academic or private practice.
The UC Davis Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program is located at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, the major teaching facility of the UC Davis School of Medicine. UC Davis Medical Center serves the healthcare needs of the Sacramento metropolitan area and is a referral center for patients throughout northern California, Oregon, and Nevada, along with providing level 1 trauma service to the community.
The 4-year Diagnostic Radiology program consists of rotations through the various divisions of Diagnostic Radiology (including Abdominal, Pediatric, Chest, Cardiovascular, Musculoskeletal, Breast, and Neuroimaging), Nuclear Medicine, and Interventional Radiology with daily teaching conferences, didactic lecture series, and participation in multiple interdisciplinary conferences.
Distinguished faculty members provide education in all subspecialty areas, in addition to a dedicated physics lecture series. A strong and established academic curriculum includes non-interpretative topics such as wellness, finance, and informatics. The residency program incorporates a balanced clinical rotation schedule and a graduated call based on resident level experience. Finally, our graduates often advance to prestigious fellowships in the sub-specialty of their choice and obtain desirable positions both in academics and private practice, mostly staying and serving California.
Well-situated in northern California, our program has proximity to the Bay Area, Napa Valley, and Lake Tahoe. The immediately adjacent Sacramento metropolitan area offers opportunities for various sporting events and concerts, fine dining in our “farm-to-fork capital,” and miles of biking and hiking trails. Many residents also take advantage of world-class snow sports in the Tahoe region.
