The Division of Diagnostic Imaging (DI) at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has partnered with the Diagnostic Radiology Residency Programs at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) to develop a research-focused program for radiology residents. Known as the “Research Residency Pathway”, such a program would further support the research mission of MD Anderson Cancer Center and provide a path for developing future physician-scientists, specifically in the field of oncologic imaging.
The Research Residency Pathway will allow a selected Baylor or UT radiology resident to use up to 9 months of their elective during PGY 5/R4 to be spent with a MD Anderson/DI mentor. There are no plans to adjust R1-R3. Residents are expected to complete DR residency graduation requirements. Residents would continue to have an equivalent of one day per week for clinical obligations (not required to be continuous) in order to maintain their clinical skills and expertise. The months spent in research training as a part of the Research Pathway will qualify as a part of the required residency training for Diagnostic Radiology.
Individuals welcome to apply to the program include:
- Medical students currently applying/being interviewed by Baylor or UT-HSC for radiology residency
- Interns who have already been accepted to Baylor or UT-HSC for radiology residency and are in their intern/transitional year (PGY1)
- Current radiology residents at Baylor or UT-HSC
