Residency Applicants – Welcome
Welcome Letter from the Program Director
Asim Mian MD
Thank you very much for applying to the Diagnostic Radiology Residency at Boston Medical Center (BMC), the principal teaching hospital for Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), located in downtown Boston. “Exceptional care without exception”, that is the BMC motto and is the ethos we strive for everyday as we serve our patients regardless of their socioeconomic status. We pride ourselves in serving a diverse adult and pediatric population and provide primary care and specialty care in all medical and surgical specialties, pediatrics, and obstetrics/gynecology. BMC operates the largest and busiest Level I trauma center in Boston and is a comprehensive stroke care center. The clinical departments are robust, helping establish BMC as a tertiary care facility recognized regionally, nationally, and internationally for excellence in patient care and research. BMC’s motto is “exceptional care without exception”.
The VA Boston Healthcare System (VABHS) provides complementary clinical experiences at its two campuses in Jamaica Plain (outpatient) and West Roxbury (inpatient) on the outskirts of the city of Boston. We also recently started sending our residents for a 3 month pediatric radiology rotation at Boston Children’s Hospital, the premiere pediatric hospital in the U.S for a robust and unparalleled pediatric radiology experience.
We recruit 10 residents per year and provide all our residents educational opportunities which include: one-on-one supervision and teaching by dedicated faculty radiologists, didactic lectures and case conferences, and extracurricular scholarly activities including research projects. The academic curriculum is structured to blend rigorous formal teaching conferences, twice daily, with a progressive, balanced clinical rotation schedule.
We have more than 40 radiologists on the combined BMC/Veterans Affairs faculty. At BMC, 1-year fellowships are available in Abdominal Imaging, Breast Imaging, Neuroradiology, and Musculoskeletal Imaging. We currently have relatively few fellows in the Department, fostering a resident-centered training environment.
Thank you very much for your consideration.
