Residency and Fellowship Training

Our radiologists prepare graduating residents for careers in private-practice or academic radiology.

RAF is one of only a few private radiology groups in the country to provide postgraduate residency and fellowship training. RAF’s physicians are the primary teaching faculty of the University of South Florida. Our physicians are the program directors of the Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology residency programs and maintain the standards set forth by the American Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  They also serve as education directors, site directors and rotation directors in their roles as professors in teaching all of the 11 radiology sub-specialties. Our radiologists also work closely with other academic departments and participate in multi-disciplinary conferences, grand rounds and tumor boards.

In addition to the diagnostic radiology (DR) and interventional radiology (IR) residency programs, our physicians provide fellowship training in the following subspecialties:

Dedicated Faculty

While most of RAF’s radiologists work with residents in some capacity, we also have a dedicated core faculty with specific responsibilities for teaching residents and fellows in their subspecialty. The core faculty maintains full accreditation with the University of South Florida radiology training programs according to requirements of the American Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Training Students for Over 4 Decades

After 40 years of training physicians, RAF began overseeing the USF radiology residency and fellowship programs in 2009. In total, RAF trains 34 radiology residents and 10 fellows under the auspices of USF. Our residents are trained primarily at Tampa General Hospital, with residents from other sites such as the Moffitt Cancer Center, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and Veteran’s Hospitals rotating through our program as well. In addition to our residency program, we provide advanced training for fellows in vascular and interventional radiology, body imaging, musculoskeletal radiology and cardiothoracic imaging. Our faculty continuously updates the curriculum and technologies to meet evolving medical education needs.

RAF is also involved in the education of medical students at Florida State University. Our physicians introduce FSU medical students to diagnostic imaging through rotations at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Here our radiologists provide the overview of radiology principles and practices that students planning to go into fields such as emergency medicine or family practice will need, as well as lay the groundwork for students embarking on a residency in radiology.
