The residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Duke University is a five year combined residency and fellowship program which accepts  10 residents per class. A one year preliminary or rotating internship is a prerequisite.

Duke Radiology serves the Duke University Medical Center (DUMC), which is recognized as one of the world’s great health care providers. The medical campus, located on Duke’s beautiful undergraduate campus includes Duke Hospital (a 1,000 bed tertiary and quaternary care hospital), as well as the Duke Medicine Pavilion (160 additional high-acuity beds, opened in 2013), the Duke Cancer (opened in 2012), Duke Children’s Hospital and the Duke Outpatient Clinics. Duke Radiology residents also rotate at the Durham VA Hospital, which is across the street.

Duke Radiology is a highly specialized, full-service department, committed to providing outstanding care 24 hours a day utilizing state-of-the-art technology and subspecialty expertise.

Duke Radiology places resident education among its highest priorities. We believe our residents are the best in the world. We maintain high expectations in an atmosphere which is congenial and supportive.

“I chose Duke Radiology because I wanted to be exposed to challenging cases and diverse pathology, and to be trained by expert faculty who value resident education. The residents at Duke are intelligent, driven, and supportive of each other. Being a part of this community has inspired me to work hard and do my best, and has fostered true friendships.
