Is a radiologist actually a doctor?
You'd be surprised how often this question gets asked. The answer is a resounding YES! Radiologists are trained physicians, the same as cardiologists, pediatricians, urologists, and other doctors.
What does it take to become a radiologist?
Many, many years of education and training, including:
- Four years of college to get an undergraduate degree
- Four years of medical school
- One year internship
- Four years in a diagnostic radiology residency
- One to two years of advanced subspecialty training (a fellowship)
- Certified by the American Board of Radiology
Radiologists have four to six years of unique, post-medical school training in radiation safety to ensure optimal performance of radiological procedures and interpretation of medical images. Other medical specialties receive far less imaging education, ranging from a few days to a maximum of 10 months.
Radiologists are not just doctors, they are experts in diagnosing and treating disease and injury by using medical imaging techniques.
