    Does anybody know which programs have dedicated research time during residency training? Thanks.

    Yale has 6 months of protected time that can be dedicated to research or elective activity. A clinical investigator track is also being developed which will be an option during the 6 months. The proposed clinical investigator track program in radiation oncology intends to include coursework from the Yale Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars program.

    At Beaumont they give you a full year of research, totally protected - no call. That much time is pretty much as good as it gets at programs, without doing the Holman Pathway. It is unfortunate because at some of the places with great cancer centers (ie, University of Washington - which gives you 3 months, semi-protected) they don't give you nearly that much.

    I have not heard of any programs NOT having at least some protected time for research. Most programs are 6-8 mo. Some one full year as some have posted. Not being on call (ie Beaumont) while on research is sweet but a rarity I would think.

    well there is protected time and "protected time". some isn't guarenteed or needs to be negotiated. The harvard thing is one year like it or not. JHH is negotiated.

    At Minnesota we have 6 months "elective" time which can be used as fully protected research or whatever else you'd like to do (e.g., work at other sites for experience in other areas).

    Vanderbilt:
    1 year - protected except for call (very light)
    > 50% of residents are on Holman pathway = 18-24 months protected

    If research is your thing, then Vandy could be your next best friend...

    The Holman Pathway may be an option for someone interested in clinical or basic research in the field of radiology, especially if you want to go into academia. As a member of the American Board of Radiology (ABR), radiation oncology also sponsors stellar research candidates for this investigator track. I have included the website below and it states that you can still apply in the PGY-1 year or PGY-2 year so you can create research opportunities within your own department.
