Department of Radiology - Medical Student Clerkships


Medical student rotations are three weeks long. Four clerkships are currently offered:

General Radiology: Students rotate through plain films and fluoroscopy, body CT, body MRI and ultrasound, mammography, and interventional radiology at SLU Hospital.

Neuroradiology: Students rotate through adult neuroradiology at SLU Hospital.

Pediatric Radiology: Students rotate through pediatric radiology at Cardinal Glennon Hospital.

Pediatric Neuroradiology: Students rotate through pediatric neuroradiology at Cardinal Glennon Hospital.

During the clerkship, medical students closely interact with radiology residents and attendings as they interpret imaging studies or perform procedures. Students are expected to attend the mandatory lectures / small group sessions for medical students as well as daily radiology noon conferences for residents. Students must also prepare a short presentation on a specific radiologic topic of interest in the last week of their clerkship.

Radiology books are available in our department's library and can be borrowed from our program coordinator, Janet Knopp. The short introductory chest x-ray text book titled "Felson's Principles of Chest Roentgenology" is highly recommended for all medical students. For questions regarding learning resources, feel free to contact Dr. Stacy Kim at

Please report to the radiology department's main office at 8AM on the first day of the rotation for orientation. The main office is on the second floor of SLU Hospital. The red arrow on this map will guide you:
