Radiology Interest Group
Welcome! In 2018, a group of medical students, who wanted to increase exposure of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology (DR/IR) to the HUCM student body, revamped the Radiology Interest Group (RIG). Thus far, it has grown to have over 50 HUCM student members. On this page, you'll find upcoming events, a form to contact our E-board, a photo gallery of our RIG members in action, and more! Through Simulation Center workshops, mentoring and research opportunities, and residency/career planning sessions, we are excited to share with you the wonders of Radiology. Thank you for visiting!

American College of radiology - 2020 Summer Internship
ACR Pipeline Initiative for Enrichment of Radiology (PIER) Internship Description:
Under the supervision of a preceptor/mentor, this is an 8-week program that will provide an introduction to fundamental principles of diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology, as practiced in adult and pediatric academic hospitals and outpatient settings. Didactic lectures, hands on clinical participation under supervision, radiology shadowing experiences, and research in the radiological sciences are major components of the internship. Interactive workshops and lectures highlighting professionalism, radiology career development, and interpersonal and communicative skills will facilitate acquiring skillsets necessary to become a successful and valued clinical radiologist, scientist, and leader. Once selected, PIER scholars are matched with preceptors all over the country, and will be provided a stipend for travel, lodging and meals. They will be given the opportunity to present their research project to the Radiology/Radiation Oncology caucus at the annual meeting of the National Medical Association, which takes place the last weekend in July. PIER Preceptors maintain an ongoing relationship with their scholars, serving as career mentors throughout medical school, residency and beyond.
