Research Training

Stanford Radiology offers Research Training positions through three existing training grants: one at the predoctoral level, Training in Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation (TBI2); and two at the postdoctoral level, Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) Program, and the Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program. Additionally, the Research Training environment is enriched by the wide offerings of Classes, Seminars & Conferences, and Continuing Medical Education (CME) that is available to our trainees to attend and present their research as part of their training program experience.

Predoctoral Training

Advanced Residency Training (ARTS)

The ARTS Program offers the opportunity to combine clinical training with advanced research training to complete a PhD degree during or upon completion of residency or clinical fellowship. The program begins with one or more years of postgraduate clinical training, followed by research training in a graduate program in Stanford University's Schools of Medicine, Engineering, or Humanities and Sciences.

Training in Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation (TBI2)

The Stanford Department or Radiology's predoctoral program in Training in Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation (TBI2) is to train the next generation of researchers and inventors of biomedical imaging technology. With funding from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), we are able to offer this program to well-qualified applicants. more info »

Postdoctoral Training

Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT)

The Stanford Department of Radiology offers qualified individuals a unique research opportunity through our Stanford Cancer Imaging Training (SCIT) Program. The goal of our program is to provide MD and PhD research fellows training in cancer-related imaging research. Fellows have the opportunity to work with our world-renowned faculty who are committed to sharing their knowledge and mentoring future leaders in radiology. Our program allows basic scientists in medical imaging (PhD) and clinical scientists (MD post-residency) to collaborate in an unparalleled environment that combines medical imaging sciences, clinical sciences, a strong cancer focus, and an institutional commitment to the training of academic radiologists and basic scientists in imaging science. more info »

Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS)

The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) program is a diverse training program bringing together more than thirteen Departments, predominantly from the Stanford Schools of Medicine and Engineering, in order to train the next generation of interdisciplinary leaders in molecular imaging. Oncologic molecular imaging is a rapidly growing area within molecular imaging which combines the disciplines of chemistry, cell/molecular biology, molecular pharmacology, physics, bioengineering, imaging sciences, clinical medicine, and nanotechnology to advance cancer research, diagnosis and management. more info »
