Welcome from our Program Director

Welcome to the Riverside Community Hospital Radiology Residency Program! On behalf of the Department of Radiology, I am excited to introduce you to our outstanding southern California program.

About our program

The Riverside Community Hospital four-year radiology residency is a training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The residency program combines the best of the academic medical center’s subspecialty teaching with the supportive and friendly environment of a community hospital.

Our four-year program has 4 residents at each training level, for a total complement of 16 residents. All of our radiology faculty are fellowship trained and demonstrate strong academic track records. As a relatively young group of radiologists, we are eager to teach and are familiar with the recent revolution in radiology residency training, including the new board exam and curriculum. Our goal is to produce strong general radiologists with exposure to the many subspecialties that radiology has to offer.

Research is a major portion of our Internal Medicine residency training program. Our residents are active participants of regional and national events that foster research and scholarly activities. Our faculty members work very closely with residents to encourage publications and research according to the residents’ area of interest. Our residents receive an annual stipend to participate in activities that promote research and scholarly activity and are required to complete one research project at the time of graduation. A minimum of one Quality Improvement Project is expected from residents graduating from the program. The program also organizes a research week during the month of September to promote and acknowledge the research results within the Internal Medicine Residency Training Program.
