Rotations

Each rotation is four weeks long, with 13 rotations per year. The majority of rotations occur at Virginia Mason, with several at other local institutions. This is the approximate breakdown of time spent on each rotation:

  • Seattle Children's Hospital — Each resident devotes four rotations to training in Pediatric Radiology at this academic hospital that is one of the teaching hospitals of the University of Washington.
  • University of Washington Medical Center — Residents attend didactic conferences on Thursday afternoons at the University of Washington. The Radiologic Physics and Case Review courses are also taken at the University of Washington.
  • Harborview Medical Center — Each resident devotes two-and-a-half rotations to training in Emergency and Trauma Radiology at this regional Level I trauma center, which includes one night float rotation. Harborview is a major teaching hospital of the University of Washington.
