Director of the Graduate Program

From Radiological Sciences

Director's Welcome


Geoffrey Clarke, Ph.D.
Professor of Radiology

Welcome to the Graduate Program in Radiological Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas. The Radiological Sciences Graduate Program is one housed in the Radiology Department of the School of Medicine, but the policies and procedures for graduate education conform to the guidelines established by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. In addition, many of our faculty come from several departments in the Graduate School, Medical and Dental School. The faculty focuses on cross-disciplinary training for young scientists in biology, physics and neuroscience, by building on these students' existing body of knowledge by broadening the scope of their expertise and familiarity with new technologies through their original research.

Research activities in the program, encompassing most of the active areas of contemporary radiological sciences, are initiated by faculty and students. World class research opportunities are available at the Research Imaging Institute and the CTRC, which are reflected in the publications of our graduate students. The past record of innovation and creativity of the faculty has created an environment in which cutting edge student research is not only possible but actively encouraged.

The program encourages active participation of both the students as well as the faculty in the program administration to promote continuous evolution towards the goal of excellence. Student representation on the Committee on Graduate Studies insures fairness, good decisions and improved academic productivity. In addition a biannual faculty/student retreat is used to focus the attention of all members of the academic community on potential problem areas. Students are also encouraged and supported to participate in regional and national scientific meetings of interest to their selected specialization.

The activities of the program are designed to develop the professional, didactic and scientific/investigational skills of students and faculty. In addition to research and professional training within the University proper,the program also provides opportunities for additional exceptional opportunities through associated institutions using the concepts of a university without walls. These programs allow work and research at local institutions such as the University of Texas at San Antonio, Audie Murphy Veterans Administration Medical Center, and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute. Collaborative teaching efforts are all ongoing with Florida International University in Miami, New York University in NYC and the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. Such opportunities are especially important giving students an understanding of the broader scientific landscape.

We thank you for visiting our web site and hope that it has provided the information you need about our program. Those of you who are prospective students are encouraged to contact us directly if you have remaining questions concerning the appropriateness of Radiological Sciences at San Antonio to fulfilling your educational needs.

Best Regards,

Geoffrey Clarke, PhD
Professor of Radiology
