At the MU School of Medicine Department of Radiology, we have an exemplary faculty with subspecialists in all areas of radiology.

Diagnostic Radiology Residency

The Diagnostic Radiology residency program at the University of Missouri School of Medicine offers premier graduate training in all areas of diagnostic radiology, including neuroradiology, interventional radiology, MSK, chest, body, mammography, nuclear medicine, and pediatric imaging. We currently accept five residents into our program each year.

  • We strive to foster collaboration among colleagues at all levels while creating a conducive learning environment.
  • Residents are exposed to wide variety of cases throughout their training, bolstering their confidence and assisting in the transition to becoming independent practitioners.
  • There is ample opportunity to hone teaching skills as undergraduates and medical students frequently shadow in the department, completing clinical rotations, or working on research projects.
  • The program offers a wide array of research opportunities making it an excellent place to develop a career in academic medicine, in addition to becoming well prepared to enter private practice.
  • Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology Residency (ESIR)
    • We offer the ESIR pathway through our diagnostic radiology residency program. The ESIR track allows residents the opportunity to receive additional procedural and clinical training during their 4-year diagnostic radiology residency.
    • We have one ESIR position in each of the R2, R3, and R4 classes.
    • Interested residents should submit a letter of intent by August 1 of their R2 year.
    • Completion of an ESIR residency allows advance placement into the second year of an independent IR residency, decreases total training for IR from 7 to 6 years.
    • More information about the ESIR program can be found online at Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR).

Coming Soon: Independent Interventional Radiology Residency

By July 2021, we expect to offer the new Independent Interventional Radiology Residency. This will be open to residents in diagnostic radiology who wish to do additional training in Interventional Radiology. Preference will be given to our diagnostic radiology residents who complete the ESIR pathway. Please check back for updates.
