Welcome to the Cooper University Hospital Department of Radiology! The Diagnostic Radiology Residency is an accredited four year program commencing at the PGY-2 level with the option of an included transitional PGY-1 year. Each year through the ERAS match program we welcome four new residents. The principal objective of our program is to educate clinically oriented general diagnostic radiologists who are equally qualified to practice in an academic university or community setting. In addition, our faculty engender in our residents the skills and enthusiasm required to maintain a lifelong commitment to continuing education in the field of radiology. Upon completion of the program our residents are being selected to outstanding fellowships throughout the country.
We are dedicated to enforcing the ACGME, ACR and ABR teaching requirements. This includes attending the National AUR conferences for maintaining updated and accurate information. A dedicated conference room with AV equipment and ample space for daily resident conferences is provided. A minimum of ten hours protected time weekly is designated to these conferences. A full onsite course in the physics of radiology and radiobiology is integrated into the conference schedule. Through the Gilbert Endowment, educational funding is provided for additional guest lectures, board reviews and various courses.
As a result of our close proximity to Philadelphia, residents are encouraged to take advantage of the many city-wide conferences and lectures sponsored by the Philadelphia Roentgen Ray Society and other area Radiology societies. The department maintains a PACS teaching file, ACR teaching files, and an extensive digital library including CD-ROMs, DVD lectures and online tools such as STATdx and RadPrimer.
Outside rotations include attendance at the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP™) four-week Radiologic Pathology Correlation Course in Silver Spring, MD, and a four week rotation at the St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. The mammography rotations are attended at our Voorhees, NJ outpatient facility under the supervision of fellowship trained women’s imaging subspecialists, the site of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the state’s first and only NIH-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
