Research Opportunities

Summer Work Study

We are pleased to offer the NYU Radiology Summer Fellowship. Yearly, the Department of Radiology offers multiple paid fellowships for first year medical students who qualify for federally funded work-study. Each student works with a dedicated faculty advisor on a rigorous and scholarly research project. The student is expected to complete a project and present their work at the Medical Student Research symposium. During the summer, the student may also shadow in the radiology reading rooms, within the subspecialties associated with their project. Students are encouraged to attend radiology resident introductory lectures/conferences.

Radiology Concentration

The NYU School of Medicine's new "Curriculum for the 21st Century (C21)" allows students to customize their education by engaging in research projects designed to build in-depth knowledge in imaging, foster more student - faculty mentoring opportunities and increase student competitiveness when searching for specialty training. This new opportunity is called a Concentration.
Students can either spend 12 weeks in engaged in a research project or split the time with 8 weeks of research combined with 4 weeks of clinical experience (i.e. radiology selective).

  1. Please review details of the program at the Concentration website:
  2. Student should complete the concentration on-line application at:

Following approval of the project, the student should proceed to submit an application for IRB approval if not already completed. This will require completion of the IRB required tutorial.

Concentrations are a full time commitment. Students should expect to spend 7.5 hours a day dedicated to project or clinical activities. Students should have at least one weekly meeting with the mentor to check on the status of the research project and for future planning.
