The teaching programs at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital are among the major strengths of the Radiology department, and the Radiology faculty members highly value their educational mission. Education occurs at multiple levels: providing medical students with their first exposure to Radiology, training Radiology residents and fellows, and giving continuing medical education courses designed for practicing radiologists and other physicians.
The Department of Radiology is a subspecialty based department that is divided into nine divisions, based on either anatomic system or imaging modality. Divisions function as a group to provide expertise in all imaging modalities and techniques, and the highest possible quality of medical care.
Jefferson Ultrasound Radiology Education Institute
The Jefferson Ultrasound Radiology Education Institute (JUREI) is dedicated to advancing research and education activities in the field of diagnostic ultrasound on a national and international level, in keeping with the University's increased emphasis on global involvement.
Along with patient care and education, imaging research constitutes an integral component of the mission of the Department of Radiology. Collaborative translational research projects, including both clinicians and non-clinician scientists, are encouraged to advance the science of medical imaging.
