Why Mallinckrodt?

Mallinckrodt Physicians Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology serves as the Department of Radiology for Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Our training programs offer a comprehensive learning experience based on diverse clinical investigation and strong biomedical research. For more than seven decades, the residency and clinical fellowship training programs at Mallinckrodt have been among the highest-rated in the country.

Our faculty, fellows, and residents provide radiological services to a growing community of hospitals affiliated with BJC HealthCare, a regional integrated health care delivery system in Missouri and southern Illinois and one of the largest academically linked health care providers in the nation. The affiliation between Washington University School of Medicine and BJC HealthCare provides for a wellspring of cases from which residents can learn more about the detection and healing of disease.

Mallinckrodt welcomes residents and fellows with keen minds and the ability to perceive and serve their patients’ best interests. Our trainees develop strong analytic approaches to the interpretation of radiographic images, aided by their exposure to a wide variety of procedures and cases provided by the hospitals and clinics within Washington University Medical Center.

As one of the best-equipped multidisciplinary facilities worldwide, Mallinckrodt is dedicated to research in PET, MRI, and related sciences. Its Imaging Center, which opened in 1994, provides centralized resources for the scientific evaluation of imaging technology and for the development and application of advanced imaging systems.

An unparalleled network of former Mallinckrodt residents and clinical fellows exists worldwide, many of whom hold leadership positions in clinical care, research, and teaching. At last tally, more than 50 chairs of academic radiology departments in the United States received their training or taught at Mallinckrodt.

For these reasons and more, our training programs are among the most sought after in the nation. At Mallinckrodt, we remain committed to providing the highest quality education for our residents and fellows — the future leaders in radiology.
