Residents rotate between the radiology, ultrasound and advanced imaging services in accordance with ACVR/ECVDI requirements. Residents evaluate images under the direct supervision of senior faculty. Daily faculty backup will be present during these times and dictated reports will be evaluated by these faculties. The residents will be compensated for after-hours emergency cases. Periods of off-clinic time will be assigned according to residency program. Applicant is required to pursue a Master’s degree graduate program as well as study for the qualifying examination of both the ACVR and ECVDI. Diagnostic Imaging residents will participate in known case conference rounds, diagnostic imaging journal clubs, and daily diagnostic imaging rounds. Diagnostic Imaging residents will have opportunities to attend conferences related to the field of diagnostic imaging.
Residents are required to enroll in the Department’s Clinical and Translational Research Master of Science degree program (http://www.vet.purdue.edu/vcs/vcsgradprogram/index.php) unless non-enrolment is approved by the Department Head. The M.S. graduate program (thesis or non-thesis option) is designed to develop the resident's ability to conduct clinical and translational research and augments the residency program.
The diagnostic imaging section at Purdue University currently employs four full time board-certified radiologists. All radiologists have training in all modalities and diverse research interests. The section also employs five veterinary technicians with training in diagnostic imaging and one certified MRI/CT technician. The section currently has three small animal DR rooms, a large animal DR room, a 64-slice CT scanner, a digital fluoroscope, 2 ultrasound machines, a gamma camera for nuclear imaging and a 1.5T MRI scanner.
In addition to clinical training and responsibilities, residents will have the opportunity to develop clinical research techniques, writing skills and lecture preparation/delivery skills. Involvement in a clinical, translational, or fundamental research project under the supervision of a senior faculty member is required. Publication of the research findings in a refereed scientific journal is expected, and the manuscript must be accepted for publication before a residency certificate will be granted. Residents are expected to present one seminar each year to the department and may also be required to present a small number of didactic lectures. Residents are expected to participate in the clinical teaching of interns, veterinary students and veterinary nursing students and a commitment to further development of their teaching skills is expected.
