COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE IN Education
The Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSOM) is the nation's second largest medical school, enrolling a class of approximately 325 first-year students annually. In addition, it boasts a very large post-graduate training program, with a house staff of over 1,000 interns, residents, and fellows. The IUSOM enjoys a reputation as a top academic health center.
The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program, currently one of the nation's largest, receives nearly 600 applications each year for its 15 positions. The program provides exceptional training in clinical practice, radiology education, and basic clinical imaging research. The department also boasts a large fellowship training program, with approximately 27 positions in all major radiological subspecialties.
We take seriously our responsibility to provide the optimum environment to accomplish learner goals. We provide a world-class clinical experience at five hospitals, capitalizing on the strengths of the Indiana University Health System, the Indiana University School of Medicine, and the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences.
In addition to our large residency and fellowship training programs, the School of Medicine curriculum includes a required radiology clerkship for all fourth year medical students. Faculty and residents collaborate in presenting a three-dimensional curriculum, including lectures given by faculty and residents, one-on-one workstation-based education, and self-driven learning through case presentations and small group sessions. With these opportunities, we hope to provide top-notch radiology education for a very large group of future physicians.
Lastly, the Radiologic Sciences program at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is yet another facet of the educational opportunities in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences. This program offers three degree programs, including an associate degree in Radiography, a bachelor degree in Medical Imaging Technology, and a bachelor degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology, as well as certificates of advanced qualifications offered for radiographers, including cardiovascular-interventional technology, computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound.
We doubt you'll find any department more committed to learning and service than the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Indiana University.
