Radiology Mentors

The Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology offers a unique opportunity to connect with nationally-recognized faculty mentors who have a passion for helping medical students explore and develop careers in radiology.  Our goal is to help foster your interest in the field, and provide insight into what it really entails be a radiologist before making your career decisions. Furthermore, our faculty are interested in helping students become strong resident candidates and navigating the application process involved with the next step in your career path. Students are encouraged and welcomed to shadow throughout the different sections of the department, and we are happy to tailor your experience to best suit your needs. 

"I think that overall radiology as a medical student at MIR is a great experience. The attendings are all very friendly and they are always willing to teach. I spent alot of time on IR and felt that if you showed them you are motivated they will teach you how to do things like central venous access and g-tubes. It is always helpful to find a mentor early if you are interested in radiology. They can help you navigate the proccess of applying and can help you decide if radiology is right for you."
