More than 140 radiologists and 15 medical physicists cooperate with over 1,000 support staff to provide the highest quality diagnostic and interventional imaging services to patients in a caring and efficient manner. Mayo Clinic radiologists and physicists also sustain outstanding programs in research and education.
Equipment available in the Department of Radiology to support these activities includes: More than 200 X-ray tubes, 38 computed radiography and 6 flat panel detector radiography systems, 12 angiography systems, 21 CT scanners, 55 US scanners, 24 MR scanners, 24 gamma cameras, 4 PET scanners, , a cyclotron facility and 2 radiology research laboratories.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are recognized leaders in their field. You will have direct access to these individuals throughout your training program.
The program director will serve as a consistent advisor throughout the residency. In addition, the faculty in each rotation area will serve as your advisor during those rotations. During specialized rotations, the faculty in those areas will provide you with day-to-day direction.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You will be encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
