Radiology Residency Rotations

Get comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic radiological training during your residency at Mount Auburn Hospital. Enjoy a wide range of experiences during two- to four-week block rotations on our Cambridge campus and at off-site locations.

Mount Auburn Hospital Rotations

Build confidence in your clinical skills as you collaborate with Mount Auburn Hospital’s attending radiologists in areas such as:

  • Breast imaging – Including mammography, ultrasound and MRI procedures
  • Cardiac radiology and carotid ultrasound – Taught in conjunction with the departments of cardiology and vascular surgery
  • Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – Includes neurology, head and neck, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal (GI), genitourinary (GU) and musculoskeletal
  • Fluoroscopy – Includes GI, GU, and musculoskeletal procedures
  • Interventional radiology – Including peripheral and central vascular imaging and interventions (including endovascular aortic aneurysm repair), thoracic procedures, abdominal procedures and cancer treatment
  • Nuclear medicine — Includes cardiac and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT)
  • Plain films (X-ray)
  • Ultrasound – Includes obstetric (all trimesters), vascular and hands-on scanning

Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR)

Three Fellowship trained Subspecialty Certified Interventional Radiologists lead a busy Interventional Radiology section that offers our trainees an exceptional opportunity to learn high level interventional techniques. The absence of Fellows ensures that our Residents get unparalleled hands-on experience in all vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures including peripheral vascular disease, aortic endografts, dialysis access, TIPS, tumor embolization (including chemoembolization and radioembolization), tumor ablation, fibroid embolization, vascular malformation embolization, vertebroplasty, GI/biliary interventions, genitourinary interventions, vascular access, biopsies, and drain placements.  The ESIR track focuses training on IR with additional rotations in oncology, intensive care, the vascular lab, and dedicated time to learn MSK interventions.  The Mount Auburn ESIR Residents also rotate to the Massachusetts General Hospital for additional interventional experience. Directed by Dr. Donald Romanelli, the Mount Auburn Hospital ESIR program will offer 1-2 positions per resident class and will accept applications from diagnostic radiology residents in the fall of the PGY3 (R2) year. 

Off-site Rotations

Expand your network, perspective and knowledge with clinical rotations at other Harvard Medical School affiliates, such as:

  • Head and neck radiology – Massachusetts Eye and Ear
  • Emergency radiology – Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Pediatric radiology – Boston Children's Hospital
  • Neuroradiology – Massachusetts General Hospital

American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP™)

During your third year, attend the American Institute for Radiological Pathology (AIRP™) in Silver Spring, Maryland. You’ll spend four weeks training with other residents, fellows and radiologists from around the world in the Radiologic Pathology Correlation Course. Your fees are covered by our program. Learn more about AIRP.

Global Outreach Program

Assist developing nations and underserved populations by providing expert image interpretation.

Share your expertise without leaving the Boston area by providing volunteer teleradiology services through International Radiology Exchange (iRadX), a nonprofit organization providing radiology interpretation to medical organizations and physicians in the developing world.

Or pursue your own global outreach project. Examples of past resident projects include:

  • Training physicians in Tanzania in ultrasound techniques and interpretation
  • Co-founding iRadX
