Radiology

Postby CeliaG » Thu Jun 30, 2005 4:37 am

I have a question. I'm wanting to get a M.D. in Radilogy. Does anyone know the process such as what to Major in for my BA and what to do after that to get a Master's. Such as what do I get my Masters in and then how do I get my M.D.
I know I sound like I have no clue what to do, but that is because I really don't know. Nobody I know knows what to do to persue my goal. Please help. :?

First you have to declare your major as Radiology. Wether you are going to a 4 year or 2 year university do this first. Then work towards that degree, it's going to be a AS, or a BS in radiology. After that you apply to grad school where you'll go on to get your masters, then apply again for your M.D. You have to do a residency, but I'm not sure how long it actually is because you'd be specialized. It's what I'm doing too, and right now I'm working on my AS. The best person to talk to would be an advisor at the school, and do your homework as to what the gradschools require. Then talk to the local hospitals and tell them what you're going to do, and the Radiologists there might be able to give you pointers, letters of refferal and such.

Good choice by the way, going into radiology. In the US it's where the money is, it has it's work intensive areas though. do you know what area you're going to get your MD in? I'm thinkin about interventional radiology, or a specialization in Nuke Med.
