All of the clinical training in our program takes place at the Winthrop-University Hospital (WUH) medical campus, a major clinical campus of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, located in Mineola, in Nassau County, Long Island, New York, just 20 miles outside of New York City. Additionally, the hospital is located immediately adjacent to the Mineola train station, a major stop on the Long Island Rail Road. This provides ready access to Manhattan’s Penn Station within 35 minutes.
WUH is a 591 bed academic medical center which provides diagnostic and therapeutic care in virtually every specialty and subspecialty of medicine and surgery. It is a major regional healthcare resource and a level I trauma center with deep involvement in both clinical care and major research endeavors. We have modern imaging equipment in all modalities including MRI, CT, ultrasound, mammography, radiography and fluoroscopy.

The WUH hospital radiology residency curriculum is based on 2-4 week rotations that span the core subspecialties of modern radiology. These subspecialties include chest, bone/ER, pediatric radiology, body CT/MR/US, nuclear medicine, interventional radiology, GI/GU, Neuroradiology, breast imaging, and musculoskeletal radiology. The general curriculum, which is organ system based, is supplemented by a rotation specific program of study that details both the educational objectives as well as the resident responsibilities for each rotation. A major portion of the curriculum is the daily morning and afternoon educational conferences, monthly journal club meetings, departmental Brant and Helms text reviews, and numerous research activities. The curriculum is also augmented by grand rounds with distinguished visiting professors from various institutions around the nation.
At the conclusion of your four years of training you will attain an average of 4-5 months of exposure to each of the above disciplines of radiology and ample exposure to innovative research projects. This will not only ensure that you graduate with a high level of proficiency, but afford you the opportunity to confidently pursue your subspecialty of choice.
