Radiology Residency

About the Program

Monmouth Medical Center Department of Radiology Residency Program

Physicians in Monmouth Medical Center's four-year diagnostic radiology residency program become skilled practitioners in the latest imaging techniques and technology, preparing them to secure competitive post-residency fellowships or enter private practice.

For more than 40 years, Monmouth has been training radiologists to further the field. Through a well-established post-graduate educational and research institution, residents can expect to reach their goals.

About the Faculty

Residents are instructed by a medical team that consists of 11 board-certified radiologists, two of whom are double-board certified in nuclear medicine, and a board-certified medical imaging physicist. All faculty members are fellowship trained from leading university programs.
