Radiology Interest Group 

​The Radiology Interest Group is a student-run organization at the University of Colorado School of Medicine that fosters the personal development of medical students interested in radiologic science.  The  group provides a bridge between students interested in radiology and radiology faculty members at the University.  Meetings focus on information and activities that introduce students to radiology as a specialty choice, including lecture presentations by radiology faculty, hands-on experience with radiologic equipment, and social-networking events.
