Mission and Aims

Mission Statement

The primary mission of our Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program is to provide an excellent and supportive environment for the training of our future colleagues in Radiology.

This is accomplished by the combination of an outstanding clinical and research faculty, state-of-the-art technology in clinical practice and utilization of novel educational tools, and exposure to a range of diseases and disorders encountered in our referral population.

We share and foster the broader mission statement of the University of Florida College of Medicine and UF Health.

Program Aims

  • Produce competent, independent practicing residents who have the ability to care for patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings comprehensively.
  • Prepare residents to be competitive applicants for fellowship, and have the opportunity to pursue other clinical, educational, and research interests beyond their daily practice. This includes scholarship, education, advocacy, and physician leadership.
  • Train residents to have a basic understanding of quality improvement and patient safety, and have them serve as active contributors to our departmental quality initiatives.
  • Train residents who will serve the local community through their practice of primary care, hospital medicine, and radiology subspecialties. These practitioners should have expertise in treating the variety of patient populations in our community.
  • Recognize and aid the medically underserved. Foster our programs in sharing education and clinical care locally and internationally through our active service programs.
