Life-long learning and the pursuit of quality grows from a commitment to and membership in the radiology and medical communities at large. As such, involvement in research, quality and scholarly activities is a fundamental component of the radiology residency.

RUHS as an institution is committed to research and scholarly activity. The Comparative Effectiveness and Clinical Outcomes Research Center (CECORC) was founded in 2018 with the purpose of furthering clinically relevant evidence-based best practices and healthcare advances. 

An annual research symposium occurs every May giving residents the ability to participate locally and to view the work being done by their colleagues.

All residents will receive training in ethics, research fundamentals and design. Residents may select their own area interest and design appropriate studies, collaborate with fellow residents in interdisciplinary projects or participate in one of the numerous on-going faculty or facility projects.
