Message from Dr. Jeffrey Chankowsky, Associate Chair of Education:
The Department of Radiology at McGill University is steeped in history and clinical/teaching excellence. We are committed to providing valuable and trend-setting educational experiences at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
At the undergraduate level, our faculty are involved with the teaching of medical students at all levels; from the lecture hall in M1, to the anatomy lab in M1 and M2, and in the clinical departments during the TCP experience. It is our goal to provide the undergraduate student with the education necessary to understand and appreciate the basics of Medical Imaging in the era of highly specialized medicine.
At the postgraduate level, McGill has a strong reputation in the realm of residency and fellowship training. Our residency program has a longstanding reputation for one-on-one teaching as well as a complete academic curriculum. A medium sized program such as ours (9 trainees per academic year) merges the strengths of personal interactions with experienced attending staff along with the benefits of a large faculty and enormous clinical exposure.
Our Department offers over 10 different fellowship programs to both Canadian and International applicants. The cohort of fellows is between 25-30 per academic year. All major sub specialties of Diagnostic Radiology are offered, as well as unique Clinical/Research fellowships that provide more experienced trainees with the opportunity to focus on research while maintaining their clinical skills.
In my role as Associate Chair Education, I am responsible for the constant renewal of educational objectives of all our academic programs.The graduates of our residency program are highly sought after candidates for fellowships in Canada, USA and worldwide. The reputation of a McGill residency graduate is second to none. On behalf of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology at McGill University, I invite you to peruse our website and learn more about us.
