Welcome to the website for the Department of Radiology at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Our department is based on an entrepreneurial model utilizing experienced board-certified general and subspecialty trained university and private practice radiologists as physician-educators and academic partners within the USF Health outpatient imaging centers and at our primary teaching facility, Tampa General Hospital. The Department of Radiology prides itself on delivering high-quality diagnostic radiology services to our patients in a professional and compassionate manner utilizing advanced, fully digital imaging equipment.
The mission of the Department of Radiology is to advance the knowledge and practice of diagnostic imaging and radiation sciences by meeting the clinical needs of the patients we serve, through the education and training of medical students and residents, and through relevant state-of-the-art medical imaging research. Our goals are to provide exceptional clinical care for our patients, to teach residents and students excellence in medical imaging, and to create new knowledge through scholarly activities. Our educational objectives for medical students are to provide information about the appropriate utilization of diagnostic imaging and to inform them of the role of diagnostic radiology as a specialty. We are dedicated to providing quality education for future physicians by offering a fully accredited diagnostic radiology residency program as well as subspecialty fellowship programs in breast imaging, cardiothoracic imaging, body imaging, vascular and interventional radiology, and musculoskeletal imaging.
