Welcome from the Director
J. Pierre Sasson, MD, Program Director
One of the oldest hospitals in the nation, Mount Auburn sits on the banks of the Charles River, just minutes from Harvard University, Harvard Square and downtown Boston. Our location and our affiliation with Harvard Medical School create outstanding educational and social opportunities.
Our department is anchored in standards of excellence set by Richard Schatzki, MD, who founded our program in 1947. Dr. Schatzki described many radiologic signs that are now considered fundamental to the practice of radiology.
Today, Michael Shortsleeve, MD, chair of the Department of Radiology, fosters a culture of respect, curiosity, compassionate care and passion for work. The Association of Program Directors in Radiology (APDR) recently recognized his contributions to the advancement of education in radiology with the APDR Achievement Award.
As a radiology resident at Mount Auburn, you’ll enjoy a supportive environment that encourages professional and personal growth. We love coming to work every day; we look forward to learning and teaching in a fun, supportive and academically stimulating environment.
During rotations, you’ll get broad exposure to a high volume of diverse pathology using state-of-the-art equipment. Your hands-on procedural experience is supplemented by daily dedicated conference time. In addition, you’ll participate in research and quality improvement projects; teach medical students, fellow residents and faculty; and provide care to underserved populations through our global outreach program.
And what can you expect at the end of your four years here? For more than a decade, every single one of our graduates has passed the American Board of Radiology (ABR) certification exam. The majority of our graduates pursue fellowship training and about half end up in academia. You’ll benefit from our wonderful network of alumni who frequently return to teach and advise current residents.
