Committed to education:

Residents are treated well, with an emphasis on learning, not grinding out the maximum number of studies.

  1. Nine scheduled conferences per week, including case conferences and didactic lectures. Lecture time is protected for residents (12-1pm and 4-5pm)
  2. Paid conferences for all residents.
  3. AIRP course and lodging is paid.
  4. Participation in in-house radiology pathology conferences and tumor board conferences.
  5. Monthly journal club conference.

There is extensive MRI experience for residents, in which the resident gets one-on-one teaching with fellowship-trained staff in MSK, Neuro and Body imaging. Five to six months are allotted per resident, with the fist month occurring before call begins.

Residents get 2 months of biopsy experience in the first year (CT and Ultrasound guided).

Well-established transplant service at INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center provides experience with liver and kidney transplant imaging. Transplant conferences occur once a month.

We have a filmless department with the exception of mammography that evaluates a portion of screeners utilizing film. Our PACS system has been in place since 2003 and continues to be upgraded. It is completely integrated with voice recognition software.
