The educational mission of the UAB Department of Radiology Residency Program is to not only graduate well rounded radiologists with the capability of performing and interpreting a wide range of radiologic procedures but to also provide a framework for continued life-long learning.
Our vision is to continue to be one of the premier academic radiology programs in the country while adhering to the values of: always having patients well-being of primary concern; maintaining the highest ethical principles in our daily practice; treating patients, trainees, and colleagues with the utmost respect; continuing to seek to improve ourselves and our profession; to be good stewards of the resources of the state of Alabama and UAB; and to lead by example.
Our teaching faculty provides a progressive learning environment with graduated responsibility in an environment of collegiality and camaraderie lasting well beyond the residency training. Residents are provided the opportunity to explore roles in teaching, research, and leadership thus complimenting their imaging curriculum.
As a department, we strive to provide outstanding clinical care through expertise in medical imaging and interpretation, through innovation and advances in imaging research, and through excellence in teaching and mentoring.
Congratulations to our 2015 senior residents for passing their ABR Core Exam. This is a great achievement and reflection of their strong work, as well as the contributions of the many that assisted in their preparation.
Out of 184 accredited radiology residency programs in the nation, we were recently named as an Aunt Minnies 2014 semifinalist recognizing the “best and brightest in medical imaging”.
Dr. Desiree E. Morgan is the Vice Chair of Education for the Department of Radiology.
