Our History

SLU SOM's Department of Radiology dates back to the turn of the 20th century at the old St. Louis City Hospital. With its closure in 1985, the primary location of the radiology residency training program moved to Saint Louis University.

Since then, the department has expanded to include at least 25 full-time radiologists in addition to part-time and clinical faculty. The Division of Nuclear Medicine joined the department in March 2007 with an ACGME-accredited residency program and a fellowship position in PET/CT.

Our educational programs also include a four-year residency in diagnostic radiology, which has a long-standing reputation as a strong clinical training program. It provides residents with a diverse and comprehensive educational experience, enabling them to obtain top-notch fellowship positions in various subspecialties and preparing them for successful future careers in academic radiology and private practice.
