The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program encompasses a comprehensive four-year training program that covers all sections of diagnostic radiology to include abdominal, breast, cardiac, informatics, musculoskeletal, neuro, nuclear, thoracic, ultrasonography, and vascular and interventional radiology.

The Diagnostic Imaging Medical Physics Residency Program encompasses a comprehensive two-year training program that covers all sections of diagnostic medical physics, including diagnostic medical physics fundamentals, practicum in all clinical modalities of radiological imaging including nuclear medicine, diagnostic physics instrumentation, patient and personnel dosimetry, and radiation safety.

The Fellowship Program encompasses two Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) sub-specialty programs: the Neuroradiology Fellowship Program and the Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellowship Program; and a non-ACMGE approved fellowship program in Musculoskeletal Radiology.

The Medical Physics Graduate Program is academically housed in the Department of Radiology and includes courses taught by faculty in UF Departments of Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Neurosurgery and Biomedical Engineering. The program is CAMPEP accredited for both MS and PhD graduate degrees.

The Physician Assistant Program is part of the College of Medicine’s Physician Assistant Program.  The Department of Radiology offers four one-hour lectures (accompanied by four three-hour labs) to 1st year physician assistant students.
