Program Summaries

Pennsylvania - Philadelphia
University of Pennsylvania Health System Program
Overall: top 10 in country (Doximity reputation)
Aunt Minnie Best Radiologist Training Program 2019 semifinalist
Hospital: U.S. News 2019-20 Best Hospitals Honor Roll
Program size: 12 positions per class (6 DR clinical, 3 DR research, 3 IR/DR, ESIR available)
Diagnostic Radiology NIH funding FY 2018: $43 million (#3 rank)
Residents continue to fail the CORE here including 2 this past year. Makes you wonder about the quality of training. - is this true? Embarrassing for such a "prestigious" program.

Program is jumping to 17 per class because of the PAH merger & IR/Dr integrated
Yes, all contrast starting in r2. Apparently lots to go around. Can also submit cases to Aunt Minnie (I think 200$ for each?)
J-1 and H-1B
