Madigan Army Medical Center's radiology residents excelled alongside many of their national peers in the recent American Board of Radiology In-Training examination. Eight of the residents scored better than 85 percent of their peers, with five of them scoring in the top 5 percent nationally. Madigan's highest scorer was Capt. Matt Grant, who scored in the 100th percentile nationally for the second year in a row. Their stellar scores reflect the radiology residents' commitment to their profession as well as the excellence of their teaching faculty.
The Residency Program in Diagnostic Radiology is a fully accredited four-year program leading to specialty certification by the American Board of Radiology. Established in 1991, it is one of 23 physician training programs sponsored by Madigan, a 200-plus bed hospital and multi-specialty outpatient medical facility at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. The program is affiliated with the University of Washington and Seattle Children's Hospital in Seattle, and provides a comprehensive clinical experience in all imaging modalities and radiology subspecialties. The didactic curriculum includes teaching conferences at Madigan and at the University of Washington Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program. Participation in clinical research or other scholarly activity is a requirement for graduation. Over the previous twelve-year period, 100 percent of the program's graduates have passed initial board certification testing during residency and have gone on to serve successfully as general radiologists and fellowship-trained subspecialists in other Army Medicine hospitals and in private practice.
