# About RIGS

The Radiology Interest Group at Stanford (RIGS) fosters interest in the field of radiology and provides advice to those who wish to pursue a career in radiology. RIGS organizes events that aim to give medical students a better idea of what radiology is and what the various imaging specialties are, to guide those applying to residencies in this field, and to encourage women and minorities to consider radiology as a career. Furthermore, these events also grant medical students the opportunity to meet and engage with radiology physicians and residents. Finally, RIGS is a resource for those interested in research opportunities in the field of radiology.
