Message from the Director
Thank you for your interest in the Cleveland Clinic Diagnostic Radiology Residency program! Our large, subspecialized radiology department performs and interprets almost 3 million exams across our enterprise each year. We have well over 100 staff radiologists on our main campus alone, trained in all subspecialties, who teach and mentor our 33 current residents. Many of our staff radiologists are active in research at the national and international level with numerous contributions to the literature. They welcome residents to participate in their research.
Cleveland Clinic is one of the top hospitals in the United States and is nationally ranked in many medical specialties. As a national and international referral center, we see patients with a variety of complex medical problems from around the country and around the world. In addition, we serve as the primary care center for thousands of people in our neighboring counties in Northeast Ohio. Our varied patient population allows our trainees to learn radiology through patients with a mix of both complex and bread-and-butter pathology.
Our residents receive a comprehensive radiology education that allows them to effectively navigate the competitive and demanding world of diagnostic radiology. They are trained in each of the subspecialty areas, including cardiothoracic radiology, abdominal imaging, neuroradiology, pediatrics, nuclear radiology, breast imaging, and interventional radiology. In their final year of residency, our trainees can take advantage of up to eight electives in advanced subspecialty areas-of-concentration. This could be used for additional experience in their fellowship subspecialty, additional preparation for private practice or even preparation for the American Board of Radiology (ABR) Certifying Exam. Alternatively, we offer the opportunity to participate in the Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology program or the ABR Pathway to Dual Certification in Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Radiology. Our residents have completed fellowships all over the country in all radiology subspecialties and they are successfully employed in both academia and private practice.
Guiding our residents through the training process are myself and three associate program directors, as well as our program manager and program administrator, who handle the day-to-day operations of the residency. The program director works closely with the Cleveland Clinic Graduate Medical Education Department and the Cleveland Clinic Imaging Institute Education Committee which is comprised of education liaisons from each of the subspecialty areas and upper-level radiology administration. This solid relationship shows the strong support for trainee education throughout the entire Cleveland Clinic system.
When selecting our residents, we examine applications holistically. While a record of strong academic performance benefits any applicant looking for professional success, we also look for potential residents who have significant interests and skills outside of Radiology and medicine. We take pride in our diverse and interesting group of highly competent residents. We will continue working hard to make our program the best possible training experience for them and for our future trainees!

Message from the Chiefs
We are thrilled by your interest in our program. The radiology training offered by Cleveland Clinic incorporates every aspect a developing radiologist needs to succeed throughout the fellowship and beyond into their career, all while being a part of a supportive and welcoming environment in a diverse, affordable city.
The teaching begins with daily morning didactics. These lectures are given by our esteemed radiology faculty members encompassing all subspecialties, including physics. Teaching continues each day at the workstation where residents dictate all their own cases which are then reviewed in person by faculty. This transitions from going over each study as a junior resident to gradually covering finer details and more advanced diagnostic decisions as residents progress in their training.
As a quaternary treatment center, the volume and case variety at Cleveland Clinic is truly second to none. We have a referral base that encompasses patients local to Cleveland, throughout the United States, and internationally. This provides excellent exposure to both the bread-and-butter diagnoses as well as the zebras that ultimately become familiar.
In addition to the superb clinical training, there are a myriad of opportunities to enrich our education. Many of our residents engage in research with faculty, which has resulted in numerous presentations at national conferences and publications in prominent journals. For those wishing to gain even more exposure to research, we offer a research track that provides dedicated research time. Other dedicated tracks are also available including education and informatics. For those interested in nuclear radiology, we also offer the ability to complete sub-specialization during the fourth year of training.
Here at Cleveland Clinic, we strive to keep a healthy work-life balance for the residents. Every resident gets placed in one of four radiology teams, akin to the Harry Potter houses, which allows us to have numerous friendly competitions throughout the year including cases of the week, trivia events, and more. All residents are invited to a monthly happy hour event at a local Cleveland bar or restaurant which provides a chance to bond between classes. Plus, our Social Committee, which is designed to host even more resident lead events, is covered by department-provided funding. As a city overall, Cleveland is remarkably affordable with an incredible variety of things to do ranging from a national park, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, art museums, a zoo, an aquarium, a science center, multiple concert venues, multicultural restaurants, a major airport, and so much more.
Whether you want to end up in academia or private practice, our radiology residency has the resources and mentorship to help you reach your goals while being part of a tight knit collegial environment. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We love our program, and we would be happy to share why we think it is an excellent choice for any aspiring radiologist.

Diversity and Inclusion
The Cleveland Clinic Diagnostic Radiology Residency is committed to actively seeking and promoting the inclusion of all aspects of diversity in residency positions and promoting an environment of equity and respect for all cultures in our program.
Women are underrepresented in radiology at all levels, from residency applicants to faculty and beyond. Since formalized mentorship has proven key to recruiting women in other specialties such as surgery, a Women in Radiology group was established at Cleveland Clinic in 2021. This department-sponsored group’s mission is three-fold:
- Enabling mentorship and networking resources in our department
- Discussing career development topics such as leadership and work/life balance
- Reaching out to medical students to show them relatable role models in the field of radiology
Events, including social gatherings, guest speakers, and medical student outreach, will be held throughout the year. We hope this group contributes to the improved representation of women in radiology at Cleveland Clinic and beyond!
