Where You'll Spend Your Time
About This Program
This is a question you will ask until you visit The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. How would I know? I had the same experience. I grew up in Miami, FL, and did my fellowship in San Diego; so I have lived in some “desirable” environments. I can tell you from my own personal experience: Columbus is a gem, and The Ohio State University is an exciting, dynamic, and stimulating place to begin your career.
Residency is difficult. It is important to live in a place you enjoy, and to work at an institution that gives you the experience and opportunity to be successful in your field. Further, it is important to work with a resident group and faculty who are supportive, knowledgeable, and approachable. We stress that in our department. You will find a level of collegiality among residents, fellows, and faculty members that is unusual for an institution of this size. We have a supportive, experienced, and strong leadership team. We have a no-pull policy: you will rarely find that in a residency program. The clinical services are education-oriented, rather than the education being service-oriented. We have a daily curriculum assignment for the first two years of residency that is iPad-based, and links to articles and textbooks in the Radiology Virtual Library, accessible anytime from anywhere in the world.
The “User Experience” is very important to us here at OSU. We hope you will strongly consider training at this incredible institution.
