Many describe our residency program in diagnostic radiology as one of the finest in the country by virtue of the quality of the applicants and their preparation and training, their performance on the American Board of Radiology (ABR) examinations, and the quality of fellowship and employment opportunities which are routinely available for physicians completing their residency training. This statement is supported by the fact that for the past 14 years, 100% of our residents have passed the American Board of Radiology oral qualifying examinations. In addition, we offer numerous clinical post-doctoral training opportunities in the department, including ACGME accredited fellowships in neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, pediatric radiology, and vascular and interventional radiology. Fellowships also exist in body imaging, musculoskeletal radiology, ultrasound, neuro-interventional radiology, and women’s imaging.

The American Board of Radiology recently ranked Vanderbilt's residency program in Diagnostic Radiology No. 1 in the nation for the sixth consecutive year, and Vanderbilt's resident performance on the certifying oral examination continues to rank first out of 187 programs nationwide.
“Education, in particular resident education, is one of three major roles of this department, with the other two being patient care and research,” Kaye said. “Patient care and teaching go pretty much hand-in-hand, and we have particularly outstanding faculty who are committed to those three roles.” (March 2007)
