Nelson to attend Introduction to Academic Radiology Program

Please join us in congratulating Leslie Nelson, DO, 2nd year Radiology Resident for her acceptance into the “Introduction to Academic Radiology Program”. Dr. Nelson joins the growing list of former University of Kentucky Radiology Residents accepted into this prestigious program. That list includes: Han Qiong, PhD, MD; Harit Kapoor, MD and Mauro Hanaoka, MD. 

The program, co-sponsored by RSNA and ARRS, includes 15 hours of didactic lectures, panel discussion and small group interactions that introduce residents to academic radiology and give valuable insight into important topics such as designing and planning clinical research, preparing a manuscript, comparative effectiveness research, career development and machine learning in radiology. Dr. Nelson has been mentored by Dr. Aman Khurana with whom she has already published several articles. Her future plans include “further development of my research skills and succeeding in my clinical work throughout residency. After residency, I intend to complete an Abdominal Imaging Fellowship to gain additional in-depth training and become the best possible radiologist for my patients and clinical colleagues".
Dr Nelson will attend the ITAR program at the ARRS 2021 Annual Meeting.
