DIRECTOR’S LETTER

Welcome to the Rochester General Hospital Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program! Our radiology residency offers a unique mix of private practice and academic radiology–one of only a handful of hybrid programs in the country. We offer a balanced dichotomy between fast-paced private practice and a methodical academic program. Education is always at the forefront with a dedicated Core Curriculum enriched by real-world view box teaching. Our residents have gone on to pursue fellowships and attending positions at the top institutions throughout the country. Simply put, we are radiologists who train radiologists.

Thank you for your interest in our residency program!

Kevin A. Lightner, MD
Program Director
