Since 1950, the Department of Radiology at AUBMC has been contributing to advancements in the field of radiology while serving the healthcare needs of patients and physicians. Today, the Radiology Department offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art diagnostic and image-guided interventional services for AUBMC, a patient-centered and academic institution, accredited by the ACGME-I, and considered as one of the top medical centers in the MENA region for excellence in healthcare, research, and medical education.
The wealth of the Radiology Department is derived from the mix of young enthusiast subspecialty radiologists and senior experienced radiologists, where some faculty members are founders of the Pan Arab Association of Radiological Societies (PAARS) and currently examiners at the Arab Board of Radiology and Medical Imaging (ABRMI), while others have authored radiology text books and multiple book chapters. Additionally, the department provides the residents with a wide spectrum of studies ranging from routine to high end complex modalities demanded by our tertiary center patients. Not failing to mention the collegial atmosphere that is shared between the residents themselves and their respective faculty. All these factors contribute to the foundation of a diverse culture and ongoing innovative ideas and research that attract our applicants.
Our program meets the requirements of the Royal College of Radiologists in the UK, which grants our residents the privilege of sitting for the FRCR Examinations. In addition, most of our graduates have obtained their desired fellowship at reputable American Academic Institutions where the majority of them have continued their journey to obtain the American Board of Radiology (ABR).
Our mission in the Radiology Department is to advance the field of radiology by enabling early disease detection and providing more effective treatment using the most advanced and modern equipment and to always adopt new innovative techniques and approaches that can improve our daily practice.
I take pride in being a part in a program that provides rigorous, and comprehensive training for future leaders in the field, and maintains an environment of learning that will last for years to come.
