    ACVR Residency Training Program Application Form: ACVR Residency Training Program Application Form: Document Transcript

    • ACVR Residency Training Program Application Form:This document is to act as a guide for institutions desiring ACVR accreditation of their residency trainingprogram. It should be used in concert with the requirements set out in the ACVR Essentials of ResidencyTraining document and it follows the headings of that document. It is intended to streamline the applicationprocess and help define what information the RSEC needs to evaluate the program. All terms used in thisapplication have same definitions as defined in the Essentials.II. Objectives: University of Wisconsin Radiology Residency Program Succinctly state the objectives of the training program. The objectives of this training program are to prepare the resident for the ACVR board examination and subsequent academic appointment or private specialty practice. Program is also in compliance with requirements for the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging examination. Training is provided in small, large and exotic animal species and in research and publication.III. Training period: What is the total length of the training program in months? 48 If this is a 4 year program, during what year will the resident be eligible to take the ACVR Preliminary Exam? If the resident is not eligible to take the exam during the beginning of the 3rd year (September), please state the reason. September year 3. What is the total duration of supervised clinical training in the program? 174 weeks What are the responsibilities of the resident in the remaining non-clinical portion of the program? Research, study and vacationIV. Direction and Supervision: Program Director: Who is the Director of Residency training? Chess Adams What percentage of this individual’s time is committed to clinical service and teaching of residents? 65 Faculty: Please list the faculty member of the program accepting PRIMARY responsibility for training in each of the following core areas:
    • Roentgen diagnosis: Faculty: Adams Percentage clinical service: 65 Diagnostic ultrasound: Faculty: Forrest Percentage clinical service: 65 Computed Tomography Faculty: Schwarz Percentage clinical service: 70 Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Faculty: Schwarz Percentage clinical service: 70 Nuclear Medicine: Faculty: Forrest Percentage clinical service: 65 List the names and percentage clinical commitment of additional imaging faculty in the program, and their area(s) of instructional responsibility. For each imaging faculty in the program please provide a one page CV documenting their expertise in the area(s) of assigned responsibility. For each of the specialty colleges listed below please list at least two Diplomates of these colleges who can be expected to regularly interact with radiology residents: ACVIM Dr. Rosemary Henik // ACVIM - Cardiology Dr. David Vail // ACVIM - Oncology ACVS Dr. Michael Livesey // ACVS - LA Dr. Paul Manley // ACVS - SA ACVP Dr. Richard R. Dubielzig // ACVP Dr. Howard Steinberg // ACVPV. Affiliation agreement: If all of the training will not be accomplished on-site, please attach a copy of the affiliations agreement(s). Include the scope of the training and amount of time the resident will be away from the home institution.VI. Facilities: Briefly describe how the program meets the facility requirements. The section of radiology has 3 small animal diagnostic radiology rooms. One of these rooms has an 800 mA tube with video fluoroscopy. The second has a 600 mA tube for routine radiography, plus a mobile C-arm for digital fluoroscopy and subtraction; suitable
    • for angiocardiography. Our third small animal room for routine thorax and abdomen studies is equipped with a floating table and 500 mA tube. Separate rooms are dedicated to large animal diagnostic radiology and diagnostic ultrasonography. The large animal room has an 800 mA high frequency generator with a ceiling mounted motorized tube stand and integrated ceiling mounted cassette stand. A portable x-ray machine is available for in-stall and distal extremity radiography. Both small and large animal rooms are digital (DR), with PACS and RIS, integrated with the HIS. Ultrasonography equipment includes real-time B-mode imaging with harmonics, all digital beam formers, 10 MHz transducer and pulsed, power and color Doppler. Helical computed tomography and nuclear imaging suites are located adjacent to the rest of the imaging department. Nuclear imaging equipment consists of a 20” x 4.5” rectangular field of view gamma camera mounted on a specialized stand. The imaging equipment is connected to a computer, allowing dynamic imaging studies and analysis. Our 1.0 tesla MRI unit is in a modular building adjacent to the VMTH. Radiotherapy is provided by a cobalt isocentric teletherapy facility located in our hospital. Radioactive iodine therapy for hyperthyroid cats is also provided.VII. Clinical resources: Indicate the approximate number of patients seen annually by the home institution? 21,351 What is the annual imaging caseload? 8695 Indicate the approximate breakdown of the patient population according to species.

Training content: What percentage of imaging reports are typically available within 48 hours after the examination is conducted in typewritten or electronic form? 95 If your answer is less than 75% please explain how reports are generated and how long it takes for the report to be available for review in typewritten form. Of the preliminary reports generated from the imaging caseload what percentage are initially produced by the resident? 80 What percentage of resident reports are reviewed by the imaging faculty prior to finalization of the report? 35 When preliminary resident reports are reviewed and edited by the imaging faculty responsible for training, what percentage of the time are two or more faculty present? 5 Please complete the table belowClinical Assignment Estimated number of cases each resident experiences during 40 months of clinical assignmentsSmall Animal Radiology: Annual caseload/12 x mo. assigned = 5990Large Animal Radiology: 269Abdominal Ultrasound: 1776Computed Tomography: 165Nuclear Medicine: 6Magnetic Resonance Imaging: 50Elective (any of above) RO 9Required elective (specify): Echo 30

The coding system is conventional (by body part and condition). Seminar and lecture presentations are stored electronically. How is it maintained/updated? First year resident assists in maintenance of this file. All residents contribute to the teaching file by recording teaching quality studies daily, which are maintained in an indexed digital file on the PACS. Resident seminars are filed in a share file on computer.XIII. Conferences: On average how many Known Case Conferences are conducted annually? 48XIV. Literature resources: What is the geographic relationship between the nearest medical library and the training program? 4 blocksXV.
