Radiology Residency


The mission of the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at the University of Washington is to offer rich and diverse clinical experiences, an outstanding didactic curriculum, first-rate mentoring, and world-class research opportunities to train and educate residents to become:

    • experts in medical imaging, including its role in patient care and its cost-effective use;
    • compassionate providers of care who maintain the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in their interactions with patients and their families, medical center staff, and fellow physicians;
    • patient advocates who understand the social and economic implications of radiologic examinations;
    • practitioners at the forefront of discovery, teaching, and organizational leadership.

We strongly value applicants who come from diverse backgrounds, as we believe this enhances the educational experience for all residents and faculty.  It is important to us that our residency reflect the broad demographics of the WWAMI region we serve.  During training residents will be exposed to diverse racial and ethnic populations while learning to provide culturally responsive care.

Our residents are well-rounded with strong records of achievement and a deep interest in research, teaching, leadership, and volunteer activities.

We offer rigorous clinical training that ensures our residents graduate with a depth of knowledge that prepares them for successful careers.
