Our department is legally authorized to offer the full residency program required to become a board-certified radiologist. Basic training in all areas of radiology is provided in 4-month rotations. An exception is angiography, where interested residents may complete two or three 4-month rotations. Residents are required to do on-call duties once they have completed their basic rotations in chest and skeletal radiography, in ultrasound, and in computed tomography.
Advanced 4-month rotations can be taken in areas such as magnetic resonance imaging and mammography or in neuroradiology. Special interests can be pursued by choosing rotations in such areas as diagnostic rheumatology, image-guided interventions, or cardiovascular imaging.
With the wide range of clinical specialties available in a large university hospital, our department can offer residents a broad spectrum of radiology rotations.
At the Charité with its three campuses, residents can choose to switch to another campus for individual rotations. After each 4 month rotation, residents will be evaluated by a supervising senior physician/board-certified radiologist. In this way, residents get regular feedback on where they stand in terms of knowledge and skills.
Practical residency training is supplemented by several formal teaching events for all residents, among them a regular morning session with the presentation of clinical cases from the different areas. Two days per week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, there are 30-min teaching sessions for residents. Once a week, there is a scientific session covering topics involving the different imaging modalities. In these sessions, speakers present their current experimental and clinical research and discuss the results with participants. Morbidity and Mortality (M&M) conferences with case examples take place once a month.
Our residency program as just outlined ensures that, in the course of five to six years, all residents can acquire good to excellent knowledge, experience, and skills and are qualified to take the board exam.
Finally, our residency program includes full digital access to SatDx as well as journals, books, and catalogues via the homepage of the Charité’s library. The following is a list of the most relevant radiology journals that can be accessed by clicking on the respective link.
