Rajul Pandit, MD
Residency Program Director
Welcome to the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC) Radiology Residency Website.
Our department consists of 18 residents and 21 faculty members dedicated to promoting a rich environment of learning, teaching and practicing clinical radiology in a busy, yet friendly county hospital. There is a wealth of training opportunity at SCVMC related to the diverse pathology offered by a level-1 trauma center. We take pride in the fact that our residents are thoroughly exposed to the breadth and depth of Radiology during their training and that at the end of the four years have gained expertise in becoming confident, highly competent, independent radiologists. Our residency curriculum includes rotations at UCSF and Stanford University, with whom we are affiliated. Many of our residents obtain fellowships at these nearby institutions after finishing their training.
We boast a modern, spacious department with a state-of-the-art PACS system that is completely digital. Computer terminals with instant access to the Internet, including PubMed, Medline, etc. are positioned next to the PACS workstations throughout the department.
The salaries and benefits
for the residents are extremely competitive and are commensurate with the high cost of living in the San Francisco bay area. The tuition and housing for the four-week AIRP course are entirely paid for by the institution.
A one-year clinical internship is required prior to residency. All applicants must be eligible for medical licensure in the State of California. All positions are offered through the National Resident Matching Program
