We offer a residency education program that is designed to produce well-trained, competent radiologists who are committed to continued excellence in the field of Radiology. Upon completion of the program our residents are able to function in the academic or private practice of radiology. The broad based exposure to both normal anatomy and a broad spectrum of pathologic findings assists the residents in their learning. We offer a personalized educational program that allows residents to excel in whichever area of radiology they decide to pursue.
Three community teaching hospitals are involved in the GRMEP/MSU Diagnostic Radiology residency: Spectrum Health Butterworth, Spectrum Health Blodgett, and Mercy Health Saint Mary's .
