Radiology: First Year Residents Recommended Readings

First Year Textbook Reading List

The following is a VERY STRONGLY RECOMMENDED textbook reading list for incoming first year residents. These textbooks cover the core first year rotations and will help prepare you for the in-service exam and end-of-year OSCE exam.  Residents need to cover the main chapters of these textbooks as they go through the respective rotation. You can see more specific reading recommendations (chapters, papers, etc.) and additional textbook recommendations from each division (via the residency website intranet) and discuss reading topics with attendings on service.
