Radiology Resident Research Requirement

Each resident is expected to complete at least one research project during the residency. Residents should identify a faculty preceptor and select a research topic during the first or second radiology year. The final project will be presented to the Department at the Annual Academic Radiology Symposium during February of the resident's third radiology year. This project should represent scholarly activity suitable for publication.

Each resident is additionally required to either present at national meeting or publish in peer reviewed journal one research paper. This may or may not represent the topic presented in the third year symposium.

SIU allows 7 calendar days per year for attendance at recognized educational meetings. In addition, the sponsoring Department of Radiology shall reimburse travel, lodging, and tuition expenses for those residents who present a paper or poster at a national or regional meeting. Expense reimbursement will be provided for one presentation of the same research project. Residents are encouraged to present multiple projects if they so desire.
