Research Opportunities

Radiology is a growing field in medicine which incorporates many disciplines. Regardless of your career interests, working with our department will improve your critical reasoning and knowledge of medicine. Students who have worked with us in the past have had the opportunity to present at national and international conferences and also to be published in peer-reviewed journals.

If you are interested in doing research with our department please contact the following individuals:

  • Clinical research opportunities: Savvas Nicolaou, MD FRCPC
  • Educational research and curriculum development opportunities: Kathryn Darras, MD FRCPC

Although not always possible, the department will try to find funding to attend conferences as a student. Please speak directly with your research supervisor.
