Teaching Activities

Regular Courses

The department runs the following courses 

  • MD (Radiodiagnosis)
  • One-year Post-Doctoral Certificate Course (PDCC) in Neuroradiology
  • PhD 

In addition, the department has three-year rotating post-MD senior residency programme. The resident in this program are exposed to a wide variety of diagnostic and interventional radiological procedures. The department proposes to start a Post-Doctoral Certificate (PDCC) in gastrointestinal radiology in near future. 

Short Term Training

The department provides short-term training in the following areas to the post graduate students and MD radiologists from various medical colleges and district hospitals of Uttar Pradesh as well as other organizations/institutions. Interested persons may contact the Dean’s office. 

  • Computed tomography
  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic resonance imaging
  • Digital subtraction angiography
