The College is proud to offer the PIER internship to first-year medical students at institutions across the U.S. This initiative began through the Commission for Women and Diversity in hopes of giving underrepresented minorities (URMs) and women an opportunity to explore the radiology specialty and engage in research. Upon selection, scholars will be paired with at least one Preceptor in the student’s area of interest.
The 2022 PIER program will be virtual. It begins in May/June and culminates with a presentation of the students’ research of their Case in Point projects to the Radiology/Radiation Oncology Section at the annual meeting of the National Medical Association in late July/early August. The PIER Program provides a stipend for selected scholars during their Summer Internship, as well as continued mentorship and support throughout the years leading to your radiology residency application. Thirty-nine students have completed the internship in the last five years. Visit the application page now to find out more information.
