Mentors and research

The Department of Radiology has a wealth of mentors who eagerly help medical students explore careers in radiology as well as their third year research projects. Students are encouraged and welcomed to shadow for a few hours during the day in the department; please just come and have a seat in one of the reading rooms located on the 1st floor of Duke University Hospital, North.

Listed below are our approved mentors and the study programs that they support. Please note, doing research with one of our mentors is not a prerequisite for matching into radiology. Some students may choose to study away for their third year. Duke Students who have not conducted a radiology research project have successfully matched into radiology programs.

To prepare for your research project, please review requirements on the Duke School of Medicine Third Year website. For students considering research in radiology, please contact Dr. Joseph Lo to discuss current projects and available mentors.

If you would like to work with a Radiology faculty member who is not an approved mentor, either clinical or research, please contact:
