Creighton University School of Medicine – Phoenix’s residency program in Diagnostic Radiology is ready to welcome you to the desert southwest.

Our fully accredited four-year program currently recruits eight radiology positions each year with training beginning after the successful completion of an ACGME approved clinical PGY-1 year. We are also approved for ESIR and have two available positions for any residents interested in pursuing this track who are matched within our program.

Our radiology residency program provides residents a comprehensive and solid foundation in general diagnostic radiology, yet is flexible, allowing additional areas of interest in the curriculum. We believe diversity enhances the educational experience of our residents and faculty while strengthening our specialty and profession; we highly value applicants from diverse backgrounds.

Our program is a well-rounded hybrid type program with academic affiliations with Creighton University and the University of Arizona. We have excellent, well-trained faculty who are passionate about teaching residents.

Mission: To educate, train and inspire all Creighton University Phoenix School of Medicine residents so that each graduate is a board-certified radiologist committed to:

  1. Improving patient care through diagnostic imaging
  2. Continuing professional education throughout their career as a radiologist
  3. Lifelong commitment of selfless service to the community as an educator

Our program is combined between two sites.St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and Valleywise Health (formerly Maricopa Medical Center) are the primary clinical sites. We are dedicated to the growth and education of young radiologists who will serve as leaders in their field. We educate, train, and inspire our residents so that each graduate, as a board-certified radiologist, is committed to improving patient care through diagnostic imaging.

We provide a quality educational experience with excellent volume and diverse cases in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology. Both sites are home to a busy Level I Trauma Center and Emergency Department. The residents also have exposure during rotations to complex imaging interpretation and procedures through Barrow Neurological Institute, Norton Thoracic Institute and Center for Liver/Hepatobiliary Disease, Phoenix Children's Hospital and Phoenix Veteran's Administration Medical Center. We offer a team approach to patient care with interdepartmental collegiality. Our program offers state-of-the art imaging centers housing the latest digital technologies and PACS integration.

We offer a strong educational environment with dedicated faculty who are passionate about educating future leaders in radiology. We are a well-rounded, hybrid type program affiliated with Creighton University. Continued active participation of residents and faculty in Scholarly Activities and Quality improvement and Patient Safety projects has given the residents experience to foster lifelong research participation. We inspire to lead by example, having numerous dedicated faculty who mentor the residents and serve as role models. We feel one of the measures of success in our program is excelling in faculty recruitment with retention of several former residents to promote our teaching model.

Ultimately, we aim to develop balanced radiologists who are committed to selfless service as an educator. Residents achieve individual success and their top choices for fellowship in competitive sub-specialties and prestigious programs. We encourage continued professional education and lifelong research participation through our superb educational and professional environment.
