Medical Student Radiology Department Opportunities

There are multiple forums for radiology exposure during medical school. Some of the most common are listed below:

Shadowing in the department (all years)

The Department of Radiology welcomes Duke University Medical Students who would like to shadow in the department for a few hours during the day. Just stop by one of the reading rooms located on the 1st first floor of Duke North Hospital and have a seat.

Private practice shadowing (all years)

For those who wish to see radiology in a private practice setting, Wake Radiology, a local private practice radiology group, has several area locations in multiple settings. Private outpatient offices in Chapel Hill, Cary, Raleigh, and other locations. Community hospitals such as Maria Parham and WakeMed Cary (similar to Durham Regional) and Tertiary care centers such as WakeMed Raleigh (similar to Duke). For shadowing opportunities, contact the practice directly:
