Nowadays, all health institutions are unable to meet the demand for Radiology and Imaging specialists trained to work successfully in this context. Apart from the lack of available qualified specialists there are very few institutions that offer this type of graduate training. This was one of the reasons for the creation of the Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the Hospital San José de Monterrey in 1976, and as one of the medical residencies of Tecnológico de Monterrey since 1983. At present, this Multicentric Program operates in conjunction with the Nuevo León State Ministry of Health.

Knowledge of the theory and procedures of this specialty, as well as the technology and diversity of new imaging methods, make our residency one of the most dynamic in medicine. The Residency in Radiology is a four-year academic program, thus ensuring the nationally and internationally competitive quality of our graduates.

This program is continuously being updated and maintains a balance between the latest and the basic knowledge of this specialty, so that graduates will be able to work, modify and innovate in any healthcare system. The operative programs and evaluation methods are constantly adjusted so as to be congruent with the program in the diverse hospitals of our Multicentric Program, which also teaches, monitors and assesses the attitudes, values and behavior of our students in accordance with the Mission 2015 of Tecnológico de Monterrey.

The aim of the Residency in Radiology and Imaging of Tecnológico de Monterrey is to train exceptional Radiologists, who attend to the health requirements of patients, according to the highest quality and safety standards, in both inpatient and outpatient settings. It also seeks to prepare individuals with integrity and a humanistic outlook in their clinical, teaching and research practice, while strictly adhering to ethical principles and the standards of professional practice. Radiologists who graduate from this institution are outstanding leaders in both local and international settings and remain at the forefront of their specialty, generating healthcare models based on research and innovation that enable them to compete in a globalized economy.

This program targets academically outstanding Physicians and Surgeons who graduated from national and international universities that are recognized by Tecnológico de Monterrey, who have leadership capabilities, an interest in being educators and researchers, and a psychological profile for adaptation to change and innovation.

For admission to the Residency in Radiology of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences of Tecnológico de Monterrey, candidates must satisfactorily meet all the graduate admissions requirements of Tecnológico de Monterrey and of the Ministry of Health.
