Resident Research Education

The Department of Radiology is committed to providing quality research education for our residents. We do this in a number of ways:

Journal Clubs

The department conducts eight journal clubs each year co-led by residents and fellows. Journal club leaders (3-4 each month) are responsible for presenting the chosen article and facilitating discussion with colleagues under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Recent articles discussed include:

Introduction to Clinical Research for Radiologists Course

This course is taught for R1s each fall. The main delivery for the course is to write a research protocol. Topics include:

  • Understanding study design
  • Developing research ideas
  • Search tips
  • Biostatistics
  • IRB processes and ethical considerations
  • Obtaining data
  • Data capture tools
  • How to write a research protocol, abstract, poster, and manuscript

Scholarly Projects

Each resident must complete a scholarly project before graduating. Fulfilling this requirement involves presenting a first-authored scholarly activity (for example, research, QI/RITE project or other educational projects or activities) at an institutional, national, or international professional conference. Most residents choose to also submit a full manuscript to a journal. Some recent resident publications include:

Grand Rounds
