NYU Grossman School of Medicine is one of the nation's top-ranked medical schools. For 175 years, NYU Grossman School of Medicine has trained thousands of physicians and scientists who have helped to shape the course of medical history and enrich the lives of countless people. An integral part of NYU Langone Health, the Grossman School of Medicine at its core is committed to improving the human condition through medical education, scientific research, and direct patient care.
The NYULH Department of Radiology consists of 230 clinical faculty who interpret approximately two million examinations each year from six hospitals, including several Level 1 Trauma Centers, and more than 50 outpatient imaging centers throughout New York City and Long Island. At the same time, we strive to uphold a culture that promotes diversity and inclusion and a positive work–life balance for our staff, all while providing world-class imaging care in the most patient-centric manner.
As leaders in the development and use of digital health platforms in radiology, our patients are able to schedule imaging exams online, fill out necessary forms before each appointment, utilize “contactless” registration and check-in, and view and share their imaging findings. We are also committed to following the principles of a high-reliability organization (HRO), which include approaching mistakes as opportunities for improvement and prioritizing emergency training for unlikely situations. These tools have been especially important to ensure patient safety during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
We are home to a team of approximately 150 researchers, including 33 research faculty. We are consistently one of the highest-ranked radiology departments in the nation, receiving more than $20 million in National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant funding in 2020. Our research and clinical care teams are integrated to enable the rapid translation of imaging innovations into clinical practice. At NYU Langone’s Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R), a National Center for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering funded by the NIH, we’ve successfully established a new model of collaboration between basic scientists, clinical radiologists, clinicians from various medical specialties, and industry partners. These efforts focus on the following research areas:
Reimagining the future of imaging with intelligent image acquisition, reconstruction, and analysis
Developing the scanners of the future, which we envision as flexible, self-correcting, multi-sensor machines
Using imaging to reveal tissue microstructure and function
Radiology education remains a priority for our department and is exemplified by our outstanding radiology residencies and subspecialty fellowships. It is a testament to our success that each year we hire several of our graduates to join our imaging team. Working collaboratively within NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s innovative MD curriculum, we have developed novel methods to introduce diagnostic imaging into medical student education, most recently using imaging to replace cadavers for our anatomy courses.
Our most valuable resource is our faculty, trainees, and staff. They are an incredibly talented, caring, and dedicated group of professionals committed to providing our patients with the best imaging care.
