Diagnostic Imaging Residency Program Research and Presentations

Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University offers a wide range of state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services including large and small animal radiography, digital fluoroscopy, multislice CT, ultrasonography, scintigraphy, and MRI. Our diagnostic imaging facilities are GLP-compliant.

All residents are required to complete a research project during the residency. Within a month of starting the program residents should speak to all faculty members about potential research topics and settle on a project and a mentor. The first internal funding opportunity occurs within the first three months of the residency. Most of the work on the research project takes place in years one and two. It is expected that the resident will present their findings at the ACVR or ECVDI annual meeting and submit their paper to a peer reviewed journal in the third year of the residency. 

Residents are responsible for presenting three hospital-wide house officer seminars on various imaging topics during the three years of residency. A faculty mentor will approve the subject matter and work with the resident to polish their presentation.
