Residency Program Director's Welcome

Welcome and thanks very much for visiting the website for the Radiology Residency at Westchester Medical Center. For ‌those of you who are unfamiliar with our program I encourage you to explore our site which contains information on the program and will give you some insight into resident life here at WMC.

‌As program director, I am completely focused on creating a supportive environment that optimizes resident education and enhances patient care. The program at WMC offers a close-knit group of residents and attendings, with an abundant sense of teamwork and camaraderie within the department. We are fortunate to have an extremely collegial working environment with a faculty:resident ratio of 1:1, something that allows for personalized attention, close supervision and focused teaching. Our residents are an integral part of workflow and patient care on the diagnostic and interventional radiology services, with the residents fully immersed and engaged on all rotations.

Our faculty is fully board certified and subspecialty trained, and provide continuous education both at the workstation and during our noon conferences. Daily conferences are a mixture of case-based and didactic lectures designed to prepare the residents for clinical practice and the American Board of Radiology examination series, of which we have maintained a 100% five-year pass rate. Additionally, there are nearly 20 interdisciplinary conferences weekly that residents attend and present at, providing a comprehensive educational experience that reaches beyond the radiology department to provide further clinical perspective. We also provide a robust Grand Rounds Series, where leading radiologists in all subspecialties share their expertise through didactic and case conferences.

All rotations take place at Westchester Medical Center, which includes the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital and our outpatient facility. All of our residents match and enter into the top fellowship programs in the country, and graduate the program with the knowledge, confidence and ability to succeed in the ‘real-world’ of clinical practice.

While there is certainly a ‘not too big, not too small’ feel to the department, the diversity of cases that residents get to experience at Westchester Medical Center is unmatched anywhere, and the hospital is geographically situated close to all of the resources of Manhattan while maintaining the conveniences of a suburban hospital.

Additionally, research opportunities are abundant within the department, with a great many resident presentations at all of the major national meetings.

For applicants to the program I commend you on making the wisest decision in medicine, to enter the field of radiology. I wish you the best of luck in your future career as a radiologist. Feel free to contact me directly at Anthony.Gilet@wmchealth.org.

Anthony Gilet, M.D.
