Welcome to the Department of Radiology

Dr. Rao

One of the major strengths of the Department of Radiology of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital is its strong and balanced underpinning in all three of the traditional missions of academic medicine – clinical practice, education, and research.  Because of the solid expertise and national reputation of many of its faculty members, the department has been able to build a huge practice, encompassing over 300,000 studies per year.  Our residency program is recognized nationally as one of the best, and our fellowship programs are also highly desirable.  We regularly compete successfully with other top academic departments in the country for the best applicants at both the residency and fellowship levels.  Extensive research programs cover virtually all aspects of radiology and lead every year to a large number of publications and presentations at major national radiology meetings.
