Residency Program




The Gustavus C. Bird Library is one of the Department's most valuable ancillary resources. Included in the collection are a large number of textbooks, journal subscriptions, and videotapes. The library also houses the departmental teaching file (over 60,000 envelopes collected over the past 50 years) as well as the complete American College of Radiology Learning File.


Our library computer network brings reference text and images to radiology reporting stations, affording access to reference materials where they can have the greatest impact on patient care and resident education. Multiple CD-ROMs are simultaneously active on this innovative network at all times, affording ample opportunities for group or self study. Residents are encouraged to become fully computer literate, since this skill is essential in preparing them for their role as diagnosticians for the future. Our full-time librarian, is extremely knowledgeable referable to radiology source materials and offers invaluable study assistance in performing MEDLINE literature searches via the library's direct computer link with the National Library of Medicine, and can routinely provide the most current information to supplement research or teaching activities.
