About Our Radiology Residency Programs


Dr. KruskalThank you for your interest in our Harvard-affiliated BIDMC Radiology Residency Programs, located in the exciting Longwood Medical and Academic Area of Boston. For over 60 years, we have trained exceptional clinical radiologists who comprise our national and international network of active and engaged alumni.

Our education mission expands well beyond developing current and future clinical, research, and educational leaders in our field. Our graduates are also trained to be effective leaders and confidently to lead their own practice’s quality and safety programs.

Education is lifelong and continuous, and our residencies are a core component of this continuum. We seek to recruit and retain our future practice partners and hope that you will visit us so we can share our programs with you and show you the many exciting opportunities that await you here at BIDMC.
