The Residency Program in Diagnostic Radiology is a fully accredited four-year program leading to specialty certification by the American Board of Radiology. Established in 1991, it is one of 23 physician training programs sponsored by Madigan Army Medical Center, a 200 plus bed hospital and multi-specialty outpatient medical facility at Joint Base Lewis McChord, Washington. The program is affiliated with the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital in Seattle, Washington and provides a comprehensive clinical experience in all imaging modalities and radiology subspecialties. The didactic curriculum includes teaching conferences at Madigan and at the University of Washington Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program. Participation in clinical research or other scholarly activity is a requirement for graduation. Over the previous twelve-year period, 100% of the program’s graduates have passed initial board certification testing during residency and have gone on to serve successfully as general radiologists and fellowship-trained subspecialists in other Army Medicine hospitals and in private practice.

At any given time, there are approximately 17 residents-in-training and the program admits up to five new residents to PGY-2 training each year; three to four are typically PGY-1 transitional interns proceeding directly into residency under continuous five-year contracts.

The Department of Radiology performs more than 182,000 examinations annually, serving a diverse patient population of more than approximately 100,000 military beneficiaries; active duty service members, retirees and families. Interpretation and review of all modalities is supported by GE Centricity, a completely integrated Picture Archiving & Communications System (PACS) utilizing an optical memory archive storing nearly 20 years’ worth of image data.
