|Descripción||Mount Auburn radiology is dedicated to the provision of outstanding patient care as well as to educate future radiologists as life-long learners. The radiology residency program at Mount Auburn Hospital was first established by Dr. Richard Schatzki when he became department chair in 1947. After World War II, Richard Schatzki left the Massachusetts General Hospital to become Chief of Radiology at the Mount Auburn Hospital where he set the standard of excellence in patient care and academic advancement. Dr. Schatzki was responsible for many fundamental contributions to radiology including the first descriptions of erosive gastritis, esophageal and gastric varices, tuberculosis of the adrenal glands, the imaging appearance of scleroderma as well as describing the lower esophageal ring—which is now known as the “Schatzki ring”. Dr. Schatzki retired from the practice of radiology in 1983 and died in 1992, yet the current members of MAH radiology strive each day to preserve his legacy. The radiology team at MAH uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide the highest quality care possible through diagnostic and image-guided therapeutic means. All radiology faculty are specialty fellowship trained and hold appointments at Harvard Medical School. Each year, the radiology residency graduates outstanding radiologists—many of whom pursue academic careers and become leaders in the field. Mount Auburn radiology faculty also teach radiology residents from Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical students, MIT Health Science and Technology students as well as medical students from around the world.|
Welcome to the Mount Auburn Hospital Radiology Residency Program!
As one of the oldest hospitals in the nation and the first hospital in Cambridge, Mount Auburn sits on the banks of the Charles just minutes from Harvard University, Harvard Square and downtown Boston. Our ideal location and affiliation with Harvard Medical School provides our residents with outstanding educational and social opportunities. Whether it’s attending a specialty course at the medical school, rotating at other Harvard affiliated hospitals or cheering from the bleachers at Fenway, our residents graduate as outstanding radiologists and develop lifelong bonds with their colleagues and the depart-ment.
Rich in history, the radiology residency program at Mount Auburn has been educating radiology resi-dents since 1947. Founded by Dr. Richard Schatzki, the department is anchored in setting the standard for excellence in patient care and academic advancement. While at Mount Auburn, Dr. Schatzki de-scribed many radiologic signs that are now considered fundamental to the practice of radiology. Dr. Michael Shortsleeve now leads the department as Chair and continues the department’s dedication to resident education. Dr. Shortsleeve is responsible for setting the cultural standards of respect, curiosity, passion for our work and compassionate patient care. Last year, I was given the honor of presenting Dr. Shortsleeve with the Association of Program Directors in Radiology’s highest award, the APDR Achieve-ment Award, for excellence in and dedication to resident education.
