Radiology ResidencyProgram Facts

Comprehensive Training in All Facets of Radiology

The Radiology Residency is a five-year residency offered by Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center. The program is approved by the American Board of Radiology, the American College of Radiology and the American Medical Association. It has full ACGME accreditation.

Five candidates are accepted to the Radiology Residency each year.


The Aurora Radiology Residency program consists of one year of clinical medicine (Transitional Year) and four years in Radiology.

Aurora St. Luke’s Department of Radiology annually performs:

  • 220,00 diagnostic procedures
  • 11,000 interventional procedures using four angio rooms, including two rooms with biplane functionality along with body, CT and neuro capabilities
  • Over 22,000 nuclear medicine procedures

The department provides access to the latest equipment and services, including:

  • Five CT scanners, including two state-of-the art GE Revolution scanners and three 64-detector scanners.
  • Six ultrasound units and six MRI units, including three 3T magnets and three 1.5T magnets, which may be used for research projects in addition to routine clinical imaging.
  • An active Mammography Center with three digital mammography units, two ultrasound units and two stereo units. The department performs 259 stereotactic biopsies and 385 needle core biopsies a year.

The Aurora Medical Group Imaging Services Division consists of over 80 board-certified radiologists and two board-certified radiation physicists.


The goal of Aurora St. Luke's Department of Radiology is to maintain a strong Radiology Residency program, and to assure that each resident receives ample exposure and training in all facets of radiology.

We want our Diagnostic Radiology residents to be competent in the pursuit of academic fellowships as well as private practice positions, and to leave our program as outstanding clinical radiologists.

It’s also our intention that our residents are appropriately prepared to take and pass their core and certifying board examinations.


The first year of the Radiology Residency Program consists of a clinical year. If you’re accepted to the program, a position in our Transitional Year Residency Program will automatically be made available to you. Completion of the ACGME clinical year will meet your preliminary year requirement.

The next four years include rotations in Body Imaging, Thoracic Imaging, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, MSK, Women’s Imaging, Cardiovascular, Emergency Radiology and Interventional Radiology. There is also a three-month rotation at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Pediatric Radiology.

Throughout the five-year program, residents benefit from many educational opportunities both within and outside of the hospital.
