Resident Research

Our program and faculty are committed to supporting resident research. While both the ACGME and the program require residents to complete one scholarly project during their residency, we encourage our residents to do as much research as they desire.

Conference time is given to residents who have research accepted to local, regional or national academic conferences; travel and lodging is paid for.

Below is sampling of research that our current and recently graduated residents have conducted. The vast majority of our resident have had their research accepted and presented at national meetings such as the Association of University Radiologists (AUR), Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS), Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), American Society of Neuroradiology, among many other national, regional, and local associations.
