We continue to attract residents who graduate at the top of their medical school classes and are recruited to some of the most competitive fellowships and medical practices upon completion of their residency. In addition to VCU Medical Center, the program is also associated with the Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center, one of the VA’s flagship hospitals.

Our Department sponsors eight fellowships each year in a number of subspecialties, including MRI, abdominal imaging, breast imaging, chest and noninvasive cardiovascular imaging, and musculoskeletal radiology. Our Department also oversees two ACGME accredited fellowships in vascular and interventional radiology.
