Radiology Residency (Florida)
The four-year Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville is designed to prepare physicians for a career in academic radiology or private practice. The program offers:
- Ample, high-quality, hands-on clinical experience
- Solid academic instruction
- Multiple clinical research training options
- Gradually increasing independence and responsibility throughout the residency
Mayo's favorable faculty ratio, large patient population and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated educational experience. Our emphasis on education over service ensures that you will have the finest teaching and the broadest patient care experience possible during your residency.
When you successfully complete the program, you will be a highly-qualified radiologist ready for the demands of a subspecialty fellowship, private practice, or academic practice. In accordance with requirements submitted by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) for board eligibility, Mayo requires successful completion of a clinical year prior to commencing its four-year Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program.
All applicants to this program apply through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Senior medical students match for a residency position at Mayo Clinic through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). No appointments are made outside the NRMP.
Matching to the specialty program includes a one-year Preliminary Internal Medicine Residency (PGY-1) that is available only for trainees who complete all of their residency training at Mayo Clinic in Florida. The goal of the one-year Preliminary Internal Medicine (PGY-1) residency is to provide a solid foundation for further training in: anesthesiology, dermatology, neurology, radiation oncology and radiology advanced programs.
Our programs are accredited by the ACGME and residents are included within the ACGME complement of the first year of the Internal Medicine Residency.
The Residency Review Committee (RRC) for Diagnostic Radiology fully accredits the Radiology Residency at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.
Residents are required to pass their diagnostic radiology core exam in their third year of training. Resident graduates will then be eligible for their diagnostic radiology certifying exam, approximately 15 months after completion of training.
The Radiology Residency Program in Jacksonville began with the first class in 2001. There are four residents in each class for a total of 16 residents. It is anticipated that four residents will complete training in the program annually.
