Research and Extra-Clinical Activities

At Emory, resident scholarship is encouraged and promoted through a wide range of opportunities. Residents can approach any faculty member with ideas for a clinical or educational project. Many of our residents are involved in projects of all forms. Please see the list below for some recent scholarly activities of our Radiology residents.

Adopt-a-Resident Grant

A unique educational program has been developed in our Department to advance extracurricular pursuits in the field of radiology that may not necessarily fall into the typical mold of clinical or basic science research. The Adopt-a-Resident Program encourages creative ideas and innovation and it provides residents with funding to bring these ideas to fruition. Awarded during the R1 year, the grant consists of $10,000 allotted over four years of residency. 

Since 2008, our "adopted" residents have embarked on a diverse set of topics that have enhanced the residency program and beyond. These range from global health projects in Ethiopia and Nigeria to improvements in education technology in our Department (introduction of conference podcasting and an audience response system, and development of a smart-device teaching case file and procedure tracking system), and quality initiatives (imaging appropriateness improvements and a new electronic system for residents to review complicated cases).
