The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education approved the University of Buffalo (N.Y.) Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences' plan to reintroduce a medical residency program in radiology, according to Buffalo Business First.

With the council’s approval, the medical school will recruit 16 residents into the program over the next four years, beginning with four enrollees in March 2019.

The school voluntarily withdrew its radiology residency program in 2006, citing a limited number of radiology faculty members and a regionwide reorganization of hospital radiology departments. The medical school initiated plans to reintroduce the program about two years ago, according to the report.

The residency program is a collaboration between the University of Buffalo's physician group; the VA Western New York Healthcare System, which maintains locations in Buffalo and Batavia, N.Y.; Kaleida Health and Erie County Medical Center, both in Buffalo.

The program will be led by Jonathan Marshall, DO, chief of service of radiology and imaging at Erie County Medical Center.
