Radiology and Imaging Sciences



The first three years of the Diagnostic/Interventional Radiology Residency program are nearly identical to those of the dedicated Diagnostic Residency program and will include one interventional radiology (IR) rotation per year. The final two years will focus on IR and IR-related rotations including an ICU month during the IR 4 (PGY 5) year. There are 13 rotations during each year designed to facilitate appropriate progression through the residency.

Call Responsibilities

Faculty, residents and advanced providers (nurse practitioners, physician assistants) share call responsibilities. Residents are always on call with two faculty members – primary and secondary. While on call, residents will cover University Hospital, IU Health Methodist Hospital, Eskenazi Hospital, Riley Hospital for Children, and IU North Hospital. IU West transfers emergent cases to Methodist Hospital during evenings and weekends. The Roudebush VA Medical Center and Ball Memorial Hospital are covered by faculty independent of residents.

Clinical Facilities

The patient population served by the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences is incredibly diverse and involves unique cases for residents to further gain expertise in their chosen subspecialties. Radiology residents train at the IU School of Medicine Indianapolis campus clinical facilities located downtown, as well as numerous off-site medical centers and clinics.
