University of Saskatchewan - Diagnostic Radiology - Saskatoon
- There are opportunities for off-site electives while training in the Radiology program. This is handled on a case-by-case basis through discussions at the Postgraduate Education Committee. We have been very open to electives proposed by the residents.
- Ratio of residents varies by the location, but overall within Saskatoon the ratio of faculty to residents is approximately 2:1. This includes all training sites in Saskatoon.
- The program includes weekly academic half day for which the residents are excused from clinical duties. All PGY 2-5 residents are expected to attend these training sessions. PGY1 residents are encouraged to attend the lectures based on availability from their off service rotations.
We offer a collegial work environment and there has always been an excellent relationship between residents and faculty. Many residents have ended up as a staff Radiologist at the University of Saskatchewan after they finished their residency/fellowship training. There is excellent resident representation on the Residency Program Committee and we are and have been always open to any feedback from our residents.
