  • Research Medical Student Grant

  • Deadline Date: February 2, 2015

    Purpose: To increase the opportunities for medical students to have a research experience in medical imaging and to encourage them to consider academic radiology as an important option for their future. Recipients will gain experience in defining objectives, developing research skills and testing hypotheses before making their final choices for residency training programs. Students are expected to undertake a research project requiring full time efforts for at least 10 weeks under the guidance of a scientific advisor during personal/vacation time or during a research elective approved by their medical school.

    Nature of Projects: Any area of research related to the radiologic sciences, from hypothesis-driven basic science and clinical investigations to topics such as drug, device, and therapy development; comparative effectiveness, evidence-based radiology, ethics and professionalism, quality improvement, clinical practice efficiency, and imaging informatics.

    Amount: $3,000 to be matched by the sponsoring department ($6,000 total), as a stipend for the medical student. Funds are intended to secure protected time for the recipient and may not be used for non-personnel research expenses.

    Eligibility:

    • Applicant must be an RSNA Member at the time of application. The scientific advisor or one of the co-investigators must be a dues-paying member. Check your membership status, or become a member today - visit RSNA Membership for details.
    • Applicant must be a full-time medical student at an accredited North American medical school.
    • The research project must take place in a department of radiology, radiation oncology, or nuclear medicine in a North American educational institution; however, it is not required that the research take place in the same institution where the student is enrolled.
    • Applicant must not have been principal investigator on grant/contract amounts totaling $60,000 or more in a single year. The restriction on prior funding includes support from single or combined grants or contracts from any source including government, private or industrial/commercial sources.
    • Applicant/co-principal investigator(s) must not be agents of any for-profit, commercial company in the radiologic sciences.
    • Applicant may not submit more than one research or education grant application to the RSNA R&E Foundation per year.
    • Recipients may not have concurrent RSNA grants.
    • Supplementation of funding from other grant sources must be approved by Foundation staff if not described in the original research plan. Awards from other sources may be approved by Foundation staff if the investigator submits a satisfactory plan to address any budgetary overlap.
