Residency ProgramLycia Champagne-Buckley - Program Manager


Residents are given a copy of "Fundamentals of Diagnostic Radiology" by Brant and Helms when they first arrive and receive a yearly book fund of $750. Residents also have access to our radiology library and are provided funds for board review courses. The department pays tuition for the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) course as well as a stipend for attendance. In addition, expenses are paid for residents who present papers or posters at national meetings. General items such as pay and vacation are listed at the UTMB Graduate Medical Education Site.


Residents obtain the full breadth of radiology education prior to the Core Exam. Focused electives are scheduled for the fourth year of training. Our curriculum is based on 4 week rotations including the following:

  • Body CT/MR 4

  • Neuroradiology 4
  • MSK MRI 2

Conferences include daily teaching conferences at noon, morning case review conferences, numerous multidisciplinary conferences, weekly Brant & Helms review sessions for first year residents, a physics lecture series, numerous board review sessions, and presentations by multiple nationally renowned speakers.

Moonlightling can provide a valuable opportunity for independent practice and is supported within ACGME guidelines.


Our aim is to produce excellent radiologists while fostering intellectual curiosity and supporting its transformation into new knowledge. Thus, resident research is encouraged, with many opportunities for investigation available. Expenses will be paid for residents who present papers or posters at national meetings.

UTMB's Department of Radiology is accredited by the American College of Radiology in: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI),
