While primarily associated with the University of Toronto, radiology residents also rotate through the department from Queen's University and McMaster University. The department maintains an active fellowship program with approximately five general Pediatric fellowship positions, one cardiac fellowship position, one Angio/Interventional fellowship position and accepts rotating Neuroradiology fellows from the University of Toronto. As well, the department is well recognised internationally, accepting observers, fellows and visiting professors from around the world for further training.
