USA Radiology Interest Group

The USA Radiology Interest Group is a student-lead organization aimed at promoting interest in radiology as a career. The interest group is open to all USA COM students who are interested in radiology and who want to learn about the variety of career options in the specialty.  Our members are able to gain exposure to careers in radiology by shadowing local radiologists in academic and community-based medical facilities.

In preparation for interviews, the chief residents from the USA Radiology Residency Program meet with M4 students who are participating in the NRMP Match for radiology.


A guest speaker addresses the group on current advances in the field of radiology.


USA COM students who have recently matched into radiology residencies and first-year radiology residents compose a panel to answer questions about the process of applying for residencies, the interview season, etc.
