Junior/first year residents are given limited research time during the second half of the R-1 year, allowing them to begin working on projects and building relationships with radiology attendings while primarily focusing on their clinical training.
Senior residents are given dedicated, protected research time that is built into the day float system during the R2-4 years.
The collaborative, supportive culture at NYU Winthrop Radiology makes it easy for junior residents to become introduced to and involved in radiology research throughout their first year of training. The quarterly research meetings also aid in this process. Our senior residents also routinely encourage our junior residents to initially assist with projects during their first year, making it much easier for them to take a more active leadership role in research during their second year of radiology training.
The NYU Winthrop Radiology Department strongly supports resident research, and most residents have research projects presented at one or more national or international radiology meetings each year.
