The Department of Radiology both encourages and facilitates research by residents. Research training is offered as an integrated part of the curriculum. Residents are sponsored for various training programs offered by national societies. Presenting residents are routinely given time off to attend scientific conferences, which are paid for by the department.
Resident involvement in research is facilitated in the following ways:
- Dedicated research blocks in the second- and third-year curriculum
- Fourth-year research electives, including up to six months as part of a dedicated research track
- Opportunities to participate in research at the Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center
- Statistical support through the Division of Biostatistics in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health at our Albert Einstein College of Medicine
- Monthly “Works-in-Progress” meeting, which features mentored feedback, guidance and training in applied research methodology from faculty, a departmental research mentor and program directors
- Annual department research day (with cash prizes)
- Funded travel to ALL conferences at which research is presented
- RSNA Resident Research Prize
Our residents have produced an impressive list of scholarly publications, presentations and book chapters.
