Residency Programs

The UVA Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging offers two residency programs:  A four-year ACGME-accredited program in Diagnostic Radiology—one of the most diverse disciplines in the field of medicine—and a six-year Interventional Radiology (integrated) program.

Our residency programs are considered two of the best in the country and admission is highly competitive for the resident positions available each year. There are eight positions available in the diagnostic program. Two positions are available for applicants who want to pursue a career in our Interventional Radiology (Integrated) program.

We’re proud that our Diagnostic Radiology Residency program is ranked in the top 20 diagnostic radiology programs in the United States by the Doximity Residency Navigator.

In 2023, our program ranked #19 among all diagnostic radiology residencies in the U.S., per the Doximity Residency Navigator.
