Welcome to the Radiology Residency Program
Our Radiology Residency Program provides outstanding experience to trainees at utilizing all the various imaging modalities available for accurate and efficient diagnoses. The students confidently advance to assume the role of apprentice, mentor, and teacher.
Our leadership team directs a talented staff of 30 fellowship-trained, sub-specialized faculty with expertise in all areas of imaging. Radiology residents read over 3,000 cases per year.
We offer subspecialty experiences in the following areas:
- Advanced imaging (includes CT/MR angiography, cardiac CT/MR, Breast MR, virtual colonoscopy/bronchoscopy, and 3D imaging)
- Body imaging (including MRI, CT, and ultrasound)
- Breast imaging
- Chest radiology
- Musculoskeletal radiology
- Neuroradiology (including neuro-interventional)
- Nuclear medicine
- Pediatric radiology
- Vascular and interventional radiology
Radiology residents have daily access to high volumes of imaging examinations and procedures. We utilize the IDX radiology information system (RIS) within a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) environment, including teleradiology with voice recognition technology
Even though it’s only three weeks into this long journey, the collaborative effort and dedication that attendings have makes me feel at home. The teamwork here is truly phenomenal. I can't wait to see where this road leads me.

Maimonides is a wonderful place to become a radiologist. The core faculty can prioritize resident education rather than productivity alone. The camaraderie and team spirit of the department creates an environment you will enjoy while living, learning and working.
Steven Shankman, Chair
Maimonides is an excellent institution to learn Radiology. It is a unique experience with the diverse patient population, interesting cases, academic environment and truly amazing people. I highly recommend our program and am proud to have trained at Maimonides.
Isaac Boyack, Class of 2021
Maimonides prepared me exceptionally for fellowship and practice. The attendings were more than just instructors, they were mentors.
Tom Alberico, Class of 2019
There is a strong atmosphere of camaraderie among a motivated group of residents and attendings pursuing radiology excellence. The diverse patient population at Maimonides provides us with a unique practical learning environment that prepares us well to become radiologists.

Our mission is to produce highly qualified radiologists who are capable of accurate and efficient diagnosis, effective communication with referring physicians, and maintaining and enhancing their knowledge. We combine in-person and remote education to teach our residents the fundamentals of diagnostic and interventional radiology.
Residents achieve graded responsibility and independence over time and at the conclusion of 4 years of training, our graduates move on with confidence to advanced training at the fellowship level in the subspecialty of their choice! As a premier academic medical center, we are devoted to educating the next generation of stellar radiologists.
The Radiology Residency Program
The Radiology Residency experience
Our curriculum is based on an organ-system approach with an emphasis on numerous imaging modalities available for definitive diagnosis and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) core competencies.
During rotations under direct guidance, residents are responsible for:
- Determining the best examination for a given clinical situation
- Performing an examination when applicable
- Performing procedures on interventional rotations
- Reviewing exam results, dictating the examination report, and communicating findings to the referring physician
- Scholarly activities, including clinical research, review articles, and interdepartmental and national presentations
- Selecting the protocol for an examination to maximize diagnostic yield
All of these activities foster interaction with the clinical teaching staff and patients while promoting the residents as consultants. On-call responsibilities and hours comply with New York State and ACGME requirements.
We hold 2 conferences per day, frequently supplemented by grand rounds and symposia given by guest presenters. During the first 3 years of training, residents will complete the core rotations necessary to prepare for the American Board of Radiology (ABR) Core Exam. The 4th year of residency is flexible and individualized.
Residents are required to engage in research and other scholarly activities. Funding is provided for residents presenting at national meetings and a stipend for residents to attend the American Institute of Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) course in their 3rd year.
Residents are evaluated after every 4-week rotation and participate in individual meetings with the program director every 4 months. We give credentialing examinations before 1st-year residents are on-call, offer the yearly American College of Radiology in-service examination, and prepare students for the ABR Core exam. We provide lectures and conferences, including the physics of medical imaging, as well as funding for outside review courses.
We encourage our residents to participate in clinical research, and our Research Committee assigns and monitors progress throughout the academic year. Residents are required to complete and publish at least 1 project throughout the 4-year program.
We perform more than 200,000 procedures with cutting-edge diagnostic imaging equipment utilizing 3 interventional suites and 8 radiography rooms
You will have 4 years of training in all aspects of radiology. We teach a curriculum based on recommendations from the ABR and ACGME to produce radiologists with a skill set (both clinical and professional) that is desirable to future employers. To underpin and complement your experience and training in imaging we have organized training in Radiology Physics presented in a way that you will find engaging and interesting.
Our third-year residents spend 4 weeks at the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology consolidating their knowledge. We also supplement our own superb conferences, with nationally and internationally renowned Grand Rounds speakers and Lecture Series.
Residents are evaluated after every rotation and given feedback to help them further improve and develop. The Residents also evaluate the faculty, conferences, and rotations (anonymously). Research and quality improvement (QI) projects are required but the collaborative environment between our Residents and our Faculty has never made this a challenge for even the most research-averse Resident. Over the years, because they are so close to the action, our residents have identified, studied, and improved our workflow. In your 4 years, we promise to train you and we hope you will teach us as well.
As a Maimonides Radiology resident, I not only gained a deep academic exposure to the field, but I was also given the opportunity and responsibility to help clinicians in a very direct way not available at some larger institutions. And above all that, I became part of the Maimonides family. I hope to remain close to my mentors and friends from Maimo for years to come.
Jonathan Goldstein, Class of 2019
Maimonides radiology residency provides residents with a great balance of guidance and responsibility. The multidisciplinary conferences, call duties, and diverse pathology gave me the tools needed to practice comfortably as an attending. The department is filled with friendly knowledgeable attendings that love their jobs and have open doors. Obviously the residents change year to year but from my experience they’ve been great
Jose Concepcion, Class of 2018
Maimonides Radiology has provided me with the training to be highly proficient at interpreting complex studies from head to toe using multiple imaging modalities. The Program has given me the confidence and ability to pursue a neuroradiology fellowship at a top institution where I will be able to apply my background in ophthalmology to conduct orbital and globe imaging research and develop a high level of specialization and unique expertise.I think staff is approachable, kind, and all are similarly grateful to work in one of the world’s most diverse neighborhoods. I found lifelong friends here.
Marcela Marsiglia, Class of 2021
My experience in the Maimonides diagnostic radiology residency program has been very positive. With a total of 16 residents, we are a very close group and get to know all of our co-residents on a personal level during our time in the hospital and outside of work. During call, residents get experience covering multiple services and reading various modalities and subspecialty studies from the emergency room and inpatient wards.
David Vu, Class of 2023
When I started at Maimo, I quickly began to realize just how special of a place this was. Attendings are great at teaching, and I found myself graduating from plain films to cross-sectional imaging faster than my friends at nearby programs. The diversity of pathology makes every day interesting. Another bonus, we have a pretty social group of residents, so expect to have plenty of after-work activities.
