Radiology Residency


Radiology at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center provides excellent prospects for research, both in clinical research as well as in quality and workflow improvement projects. Radiology residents have opportunities to start and join projects both within the Radiology department as well as joint projects with clinicians. A robust web portal available to our residents allows quick access to available projects from faculty. Our residents frequently attend and present at conferences.
