Meet the Residents - Diagnostic Radiology Residency
In the Department of Radiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center, fun is always a part of our daily activities. We enjoy our work, and we do a great job supporting each other. The first year residents can rely on more senior residents for mentoring and guidance. The upper year residents “have each other’s back” for call duties. The fourth year residents enjoy a flexible schedule with their choice of electives or mini-fellowships and a lot of time for research.

Salary and Benefits
We have a large state-of-the-art conference room with three overhead HD projectors. Across from the conference room is the resident learning center (RLC) equipped with computers, desks, conference table, and textbooks. There is also a resident lounge with a kitchen area, lockers, and couches. Each resident receives a $2,000 educational stipend. These funds can be spent at the discretion of the resident for educational tools including but not limited to electronics and textbooks. Residents also receive free access to STATdx and RADPrimer, and fees for the American Board of Radiology (ABR) are paid by the department. Funding is available for residents presenting at national conferences such as RSNA (Radiological Society of North America ), AUR (Association of University Radiologists), ARRS (American Roentgen Ray Society), SPR (Society for Pediatric Radiology), SIR (Society Of Interventional Radiology ), and ASHNR (American Society of Head and Neck Radiology), among others.
RAD-AID International is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase radiology’s contribution to global public health initiatives by optimizing access to medical imaging in developing regions of the world. In 2013, our radiology residents and faculty founded a RAD-AID chapter at the University of Maryland Medical Center. So far, we have focused our efforts in Lagos, Nigeria and Johannesburg, South Africa. For more information about the University of Maryland RAD-AID chapter.
Additionally, there is a yearly RAD-AID conference attended by several of our residents as well as individuals from multiple medical specialties and government sectors. Conference topics range from global community service to international, economic development strategies. For more information about the annual RADAID conference, visit the RAD-AID website.
Increasing Diversity in Radiology
It is a well-known fact that women remain under-represented in the field of radiology, despite much remarkable advancement in our field. The American College of Radiology has made it their goal to increase and promote diversity in Radiology, and we here at UMMC, have made it our goal as well. Each year, we hold a “Women in Radiology” meeting, which is a gathering of women who serve as resident, fellow and attending physicians in the state of Maryland. During this meeting, we discuss ways to increase the presence of women in radiology, establish mentoring relationships and flourish in our field.
