Diagnostic Residency

At MIR, you’ll train alongside globally recognized radiologists who are dedicated to clinical care, education and your personal success. And that’s just one reason why our diagnostic radiology residency is a national standout.

Our 1-to-1 faculty to resident ratio provides unmatched clinical training in interpreting imaging studies and performing image-guided procedures. Face-to-face readout is used on all services, so residents get personal feedback on all reviewed cases. And with an average class size of 16, residents have flexibility with vacation time, rotations and on-call scheduling.

We provide hands-on training to build graduated competence. Residents rotate through three hospitals during training: Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, training alongside attending radiologists.

Daily Noon Conference

The noon-hour conference, given by a subspecialty-trained faculty radiologist, is designed specifically for resident education. Each conference is recorded and available for review by trainees. Audience response is increasingly used by lecturers to enhance the learning experience.

Teaching Conference

Often case-based, a daily teaching conference is given on nearly every rotation, providing residents with additional didactic teaching and the opportunity to practice taking cases in an unknown format. Residents in all years participate. For example, a first-year might identify the findings in a case, followed by a more senior resident synthesizing those findings into a differential diagnosis. A faculty member rounds out the discussion with additional findings, diagnoses and teaching points.

Review Conferences

MIR prepares residents for the American Board of Radiology Core Examination and independent practice by hosting its own internal core exam review conference series.

MIR offers countless opportunities to participate in mentored radiology research that results in national meeting presentations and publication in major journals. First and second year residents are reimbursed for one meeting each academic year, up to a maximum of $1,500. MIR will reimburse third and fourth year residents for more than one meeting each academic year, up to a maximum of $2,000.

Residents who obtain full Missouri medical licensure and are ACLS certified are eligible to participate in moonlighting opportunities within the Department of Radiology by providing physician coverage of contrast injections at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Moonlighting opportunities may be performed by residents in good standing with program director approval beginning their R2 year. (All liscensure costs incurred are paid by the resident; the department will not reimburse these expenses.)
