Want to be a part of this department.. ?

You can join this department beginning as a resident or as staff member.
The hierarchy is as follows.

  1. Resident
  2. Lecturer
  3. Associate professor
  4. Professor

Resident:

The residencies start twice a year in February and August.

To apply, you have to collect the forms from the college office about a month prior to the commencement of the residency. These forms are not sent by mail.

The residency program is of three years. As a rule, to be a resident you must have admission to one of the radiology post graduate courses conducted by the University of Mumbai/Maharashtra University of Health Sciences. These include a 2 year diploma course (D.M.R.D.) and a 3 year degree course (M.D.). The details of the number of seats available for these courses is available at http://www.kem.edu/courses.htm . As per the new directives issued by the National Board of Examinations, we are, as a rule, no longer able to provide admissions for the D.N.B. course for those who have completed their MBBS/DMRD courses.

Thus if you are admitted (registered) for the DMRD course, you automatically get a 2 year residency and similarly a 3 year residency is given to those registered for the MD course.

From time to time, depending upon the needs of the department supernumerary third year residents and occasionally fourth year residents are appointed. Those applying for these posts need not be registered for any post graduate courses and may be doing this simply as an additional experience. We do not admit students for The DNB course and no posts will be given on this account.

Depending upon the year of residency, residents are paid between Rs.13,000 and Rs.14,000 per month as stipend.
