Dedicated Research Projects on Clinical or Technical Topics

Residents are encouraged to complete a minimum of six months of dedicated research time. All proposed research projects must first be approved by the resident's mentor and the departmental leadership. For qualified and motivated residents, additional research time, up to 12 months total, is available.

The research time allows maximum flexibility and may be conducted on a wide range of clinical or technical topics. Basic science research may be conducted within the department's Division of Radiation Biology or elsewhere in the medical school, such as the Department of Biomedical Engineering or the Case Center for Imaging Research (CCIR).

Our faculty feels strongly that a full 36 months of clinical experience is a necessary component of residency training. Therefore, the Holman research pathway is not offered. For those highly motivated and qualified residents, more research time such as post-doctoral fellowships can be arranged on an individual basis.
