The UTCVM offers a four year structured program designed to prepare the resident to qualify for and pass the certifying examination in diagnostic radiology of the American College of Veterinary Radiology. An advanced degree program is not offered in conjunction with the residency.

One residency position is offered per year, which is filled through the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program.
