Learn about our general Programs and Benefits
The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Diagnostic Radiology Residency program provides a number of additional benefits to support their residents with respect to personal and career development. Below is a summary of these additional benefits:
In addition to the vacation benefit allotted by GME, radiology residents are given time off during the Holiday Season. Residents are allowed up to five days for interviews in their third or fourth year. They are also allowed relocation time if needed to start a fellowship at the end of the program.
Residents who have their research accepted for presentation at an academic conference will have their conference attendance funded by the program. This includes reimbursed airfare, hotel, and a meal allowance per conference. Residents may attend multiple conferences if their work is accepted for presentation.
Residents are funded to attend one conference of their choice during residency, where they are not presenting. Board review courses are popular with our current senior residence.
The department pays tuition, travel, lodging, and food expenses for the rotation at AIRP (American Institute for Radiologic Pathology).
Radiology Residents complete their Pediatric Radiology rotation at Boston Children's Hospital. The department provides accommodations in the Longwood Area, including gated parking and a travel allowance.
Radiology Residents registration is paid by the department to attend Huda Physics courses. These courses range from Foundations of Radiological Physics for first and second year residents, X-Ray Imaging Physics and Medical Imaging Physics directed towards second and third year residents. Courses take place in Boston, MA and New Haven, CT. In addition, residents register for and complete the AAPM/RSNA web based physics modules.
The department will purchase a subscription to STAT dx and the ACR Online Learning Files for each resident. Along with these nationally acclaimed tools, residents have access to extensive department case files, notably in neuroradiology and nuclear medicine.
Residents are encouraged to become actively involved in organized radiology, by becoming resident members of and attending the meetings of the New England Roentgen Ray Society as well as the American College of Radiology (ACR). The NERRS holds monthly conferences at the Harvard Conference Center in Boston. NERRS Membership for residents is paid by the department, as well as a travel stipend to attend the monthly meetings.
The New Hampshire Radiological Society funds two residents each year to attend the annual ACR Annual Meeting and Chapter Leaders' Conference in Washington, D.C. Dartmouth-Hitchcock radiology residents represent the State at this meeting.
Chief Residents are funded to attend the AUR Annual Conference and represent Dartmouth-Hitchcock at the American Alliance of Academic Chief Residents in Radiology (A3CR2) meeting. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to discuss matters of mutual interest and engage in scientific presentations and other interactions with their peers and teachers.
