Our radiologists are highly trained specialist physicians who are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology. Becoming a radiologist requires at least 13 years of education after high school: 4 years of undergraduate study, 4 years of medical school, 1 year of a general medical internship, and 4 years of radiology residency. Many of our physicians have also gained further subspecialty expertise through optional fellowship training after residency. All of our radiologists maintain their certification through continuing medical education and attendance at national scientific meetings.
