Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium is proud to announce the accreditation of the new Radiology-Diagnostic Residency Program at Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program is now accepting applications for the inaugural class of radiology residents to join Sunrise Health at the MountainView Hospital campus beginning July 2020.
The program aims to provide residents with quality clinical training that emphasizes clinical excellence, teamwork, leadership, and career development. Its goal is to train well-rounded, clinically competent physicians that are capable of balancing the demands of medical practice with healthy personal lifestyles.
Diagnostic radiology can be used to identify a wide range of problems such as broken bones, heart conditions, blood clots and gastrointestinal conditions. Examples of diagnostic radiology include X-rays, ultrasound, CT scans and MRI scans.
The ACGME-accredited residency program for diagnostic radiology takes four years to complete. Sunrise Health GME Consortium also has accredited residency programs in Anesthesiology, Emergency Medicine, Endocrinology, Family Medicine, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, OBGYN, Internal Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Psychiatry, as well as two fellowship programs: Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, and Gastroenterology.
The Sunrise Health GME Consortium currently has 187 residents based at MountainView and Southern Hills Hospital.
"Our residents will be met with diverse opportunities to train and grow as they rotate through three HCA campuses in Las Vegas, all with uniquely different dynamics," says Dr. Ferenc Puskas, Sunrise Health GME Consortium Designated Institutional Official.
ACGME is a private, non-profit organization that evaluates and accredits graduate medical education programs. Residency is the final phase of a long educational process, required for a physician to practice medicine, and is most influential in determining where a physician eventually practices.
