MDACC Resident Research Pathway

The MDACC Resident Research Pathway works in conjunction with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Division of Diagnostic Imaging to promote physician researchers in Diagnostic Imaging. The program allows elective time (during PGY5/R4) for radiology residents to devote to basic science or clinical research project(s). During this year, residents spend one day a week in the clinic in order to maintain their interpretive skills and four days a week are spent developing their research interests.

Interested applicants may apply to the MDACC Resident Research Pathway if one of the following criteria is met:

  • Currently a medical student applying to the Diagnostic Radiology residency
  • An intern who has already been accepted to the Diagnostic Radiology residency
  • A current resident in the Diagnostic Radiology program
