Help USCE for Diagnostic Radiology

I'm wondering... what's the preferred type of USCE do I need to get into diagnostic radiology? I've read it's radiology-related research, but that wouldn't be CE, would it?


I'd appreciate your advice.

Thank you.

And if I get into an externship program, what's the most suitable specialty that would be helpful to me during the Match when I apply for radiology?

Radiology does not need hands-on experience as much as it needs theoretical and research experience. Therefore your best shot would be research.

People looking for radiology usually go either directly to categorical radiology programs or they go to preliminary internal medicine one year first then advanced radiology program starting from PGY2.

I don't think there's any externship opportunity in radiology, not sure though

The best next of kin specialty would be internal medicine so you can do internal medicine externship if you want but as I said research in radiology is much better for you.
