A central pillar of our mission is educating the next generation of radiologists and scientists.  Medical Imaging participates in medical training and education at all levels including medical students, radiology residents and fellows, undergraduate and graduate students from UArizona science disciplines and in the continuing education of radiologists.  Our programs offer nationally competitive curriculum distinguished by ample research opportunities, quality training and a demonstration of lifetime learning. 

The department supports four ACGME accredited Residency training pathways, a Diagnostic Radiology Residency program, a Diagnostic Radiology Residency with Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR), an Integrated IR Residency and an Independent IR Residency. We offer advanced subspecialty training in both ACGME accredited and non-ACGME fellowship programs. 

The Vice Chair of Education, Dorothy Gilbertson-Dahdal, MD, is responsible for oversight of the two (Diagnostic and ESIR) residency programs and 10 fellowship programs with the help of additional subspecialty specific fellowship directors. She also helps to oversee the education of medical students. Gregory Woodhead, MD, PhD, pictured with the Interventional Radiology Division Chief, Dr. Charles Hennemeyer, is responsible for oversight of the Integrated IR and Independent IR programs.

The Medical Student Radiology Electives Course Director is Sarah Desoky, MD, pictured with residents Grace Renshaw, MD and Miguel Craig, MD.  Kavitha Yaddanapudi, MD, is the Medical Imaging Discipline Director. 




The Radiology Residency Training Program is a four-year ACGME-accredited residency program which starts after completing a 1-year ACGME accredited clinical experience and occurs in a clinically-oriented teaching environment.  The program provides the foundation for careers in Diagnostic Radiology, both in academic and private practice sectors.



The University of Arizona, Department of Medical Imaging offers ten, 1-year fellowships, four of which are ACGME accredited.
