We use a float month system of call. Each resident has one month of night float in years 2-4, limited to call responsibilities. There is some additional weekend coverage. Teleradiology is used during this rotation.
Residents work one-on-one with attending physicians and patients for a personalized education with hands-on experience. There are currently no radiology fellows at UTMC. Residents have an excellent record of obtaining fellowships both in their subspecialty of interest and in the location they want.
