Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program

Program Director's Welcome

Through our USF Health affiliated hospital partners, the diagnostic radiology residency program at USF Health, offers a diverse educational experience in a variety of clinical settings that prepares our graduating residents well for careers in either private practice or academic radiology. The central Florida climate, with its mild winters, offers an additional bonus for year-round recreational activities apart from residency training.
