As part of the current ACGME Diagnostic Radiology Program Requirements, all radiology residents must undertake a scholarly project and a quality improvement project.

Residents are guided in their choice of and progress on scholarly activities by our radiology department research committee.  Residents have undertaken a broad spectrum of projects, including book chapters, scientific and educational exhibits at major radiology meetings, and publications of primary research and case reports.

Each resident presents his/her work at our annual Radiology Research Day, with the projects judged best receiving recognition and monetary awards.  Residents who have projects accepted for presentation at national or regional meetings receive financial assistance from the department to attend the conference.

In addition, each resident undertakes a solo or group quality improvement project, typically relating to the residency or the department.  Upon completion, these projects are presented at the monthly Radiology Department Quality meeting.
