Diagnostic Radiology Overview

The aim of this NHG Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program is to train and nurture the next generation of radiologists who will excel in the practice of clinical and academic radiology by providing a well-rounded and challenging training program. It is the vision of the faculty to produce a graduate that will be ready for any consultant post with the necessary leadership qualities and skills in quality and improvement, research, teaching and administration.

DDROLD 

Our radiology department has a long history and reputation for having a strong and rigorous training program and a wide resource of clinical material for teaching. We are currently the only radiology department with a full complement of staff radiologists and together with our visiting consultants provide the complete range of expertise.

The Residency offered is a 5-year post-graduate program leading up to specialist accreditation in Diagnostic Radiology. As a resident, you will be closely supervised with continual feedback provided for self-improvement. There will be ample opportunities for self-study and self-reflection. There will also be weekly team-based sessions for practice and discussion. Selected residents can look forward to sponsorships to overseas courses such as the 4-week Rad-Path course run by the American College of Radiologists. There will be ample opportunities to participate in both clinical and pre-clinical (animal) trials, as well as participate in quality improvement projects.

Structure of Program     

A) Medical Knowledge       

  • The core didactic lecture curriculum will be organised at a national level under the auspices of the College of Radiology and the Singapore Radiological Society. These will cover topic in preparation for the following FRCR modules:
    • 1) Radiological Anatomy: September in Year 1
    • 2) Physics: March in Year 1
    • 3) FRCR 2A theory papers (6 modules) : Year 2 & 3
    • 4) FRCR 2B vivas and film reporting: End Year 3 / Year 4
  • In addition to these core lectures, there will be intense teaching and practice sessions in preparation for the anatomy module in September.
  • Weekly team-based and 1-on-1 learning sessions will compliment the FRCR 2A lectures in Year 2 & 3.
  • Weekly 1-on-1 viva sessions will be conducted from the 2nd year onward in preparation for the FRCR Part 2B (viva and film reporting).
  • Throughout the years of training, the resident will be required to participate in annual in-service exams.
  • All residents are required to participate in the department’s Case of the Week discussions.

B) Skills TrainingThe aim of the clinical rotations will be teach the proper planning, conduct and interpretation of basic and advanced radiological examinations. Both the resident and faculty will be given a common set of competency outcome goals to be achieved for each rotation.

  • Year 1: There will be 2-monthly rotations through IVU, Bariums and Basic Ultrasound (body, pelvis, kidneys) with some exposure to basic CT, MRI and Mammography. Plain film reading will be taught throughout the first year. In January, there will be national-level film reporting test. Candidates who are successful will be allowed to commence supervised calls, reading ED films. Residents will be rotated through KTPH for some of these basic rotations.
  • Year 2: There will be 3-monthly rotations through CT (basic chest and body), MRI (body, some MSK), US (advanced, including doppler, contrast, thryoid FNA, prostate and penile doppler) and CT (advanced, including coronary, vascular, colono, some H&N). Residents will be rotated through KTPH for some of these advanced rotations.
  • Years 3-4: There will be 3-monthly rotations with our subspecialty teams in Mammography, Head & Neck, Musculo-Skeletal (including MSK interventions) and Vascular & Interventional Radiology. There will also be clinical rotations out of TTSH to NNI (Neuroradiology – 3 months), KKMCH (Paeds – 3 months, OBGY – 3 months, SGH or NUH (Nuclear Medicine – 4 months).
