The Radiology Residency Program at Botsford Hospital is a four-year program incorporating didactic and clinical components. The overall approach is to develop the resident's ability to evaluate and interpret various imaging modalities as they relate to the patient's clinical presentation and be proficient in various radiologic interventional procedures.
The two main goals of this program are to provide:
These goals are accomplished by interdepartmental exposure, integrating the training program with other departments within the institution and by affiliation with the Statewide Campus System of Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSUCOM).
The didactic component is ongoing throughout the four years. A combination of the more usual general diagnostic problems and subspecialty topics are scheduled daily. Each discipline (chest, musculoskeletal, neuroradiology, mammography, GI, nuclear, etc.) is reviewed and integrated in conjunction with the multitude of imaging procedures available. Some lectures are given in a formal manner while others are given as case studies with resident participation.
In those areas where Botsford Hospital cannot provide excellent training opportunities, outside rotations are arranged to comply with the basic requirements of the American Osteopathic College of Radiology (AOCR).
The resident is instructed in the practice of radiology and also tutored in the art of teaching radiology. He or she achieves radiologic teaching skills by preparing and presenting lectures and functioning as a consultant to the house staff at the viewbox.
All procedures and theories relative to osteopathic principles and practices are integrated into the Radiology Residency Program. Consultations with referring physicians are emphasized in an attempt to achieve the holistic approach to individual patient care.
Diagnostic Radiology is planning to submit their ACGME application in July 2015 under the Single Accreditation System agreement. Once the application is submitted, the program will receive pre-accreditation status and a site visit will be scheduled. Once the site visit is over and the ACGME Residency Committee for Diagnostic Radiology has met, an accreditation decision will be made. Botsford’s Diagnostic Radiology program is committed to meeting program requirements, as specified by the ACGME, to ensure accreditation is granted.
