    is it possible to do your intern year in psych and then switch to radiology?

    what are all options for intern year? path, family med and what else besides med and surg?

    It has to be something with a clinical component, so path is not listed as one of the options. As far as I remember, 1 year of surgery, medicine, family, ob, peds, or transitional are the options for first year studies prior to rads residency.

    "Resident education in diagnostic radiology must include 5 years of clinically
    oriented graduate medical education, of which 4 years must be in diagnostic
    radiology. The clinical year must consist of Accreditation Council for
    Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), Royal College of Physicians and
    Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), or equivalent accredited training in internal
    medicine, pediatrics, surgery or surgical specialties, obstetrics and
    gynecology, neurology, family practice, emergency medicine, or any
    combination of these, or an ACGME or equivalent accredited transitional
    year​
    ."
