Diagnostic Imaging Residency

The Diagnostic Imaging residency program is full-time and 3 calendar years in length. Concurrent enrollment in National University's Master of Science (MS) degree program Diagnostic Imaging is an integral and mandatory part of the residency. The cost of the Masters program is waived for the resident.


We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2017. We accept one Diagnostic Imaging resident per year with the program commencing on or around September 1st of each year.

The on-campus interviews take place later in May. There will be a Diagnostic Imaging entrance examination on the same day as the interviews. We like to notify the selected applicant early June to give them 3 months notice prior to beginning the program.
