American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP)
All residents are given the opportunity to attend the AIRP during their residency training, typically in the second or third years. MIR pays the tuition for this learning experience. If a resident does not go to AIRP, s/he is required to do a month of Rad Path at MIR.
Residents have designed some unique opportunities to learn radiology outside of St. Louis: two residents spent time in Chile, working with a sister program in Santiago (whose trainees observe at Mallinckrodt). Others have been to Bhutan, Guatemala, and Honduras.
Residents who have a mentored project may receive dedicated time to perform radiology research intended for publication and/or presentation.
Selected residents provide radiologic anatomic correlative training for first-year medical students in the gross anatomy course. Residents also provide didactic and case-based training for third-year medical students rotating through the radiology clerkship. All residents on this rotation will help to build teaching materials used by future trainees.
