As director of medical student education for the Department of Radiology at Jefferson Medical College and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, he organized the Introductory Radiology Clerkship and created the Jefferson Medical College intra-Web learning site for this course.

Dr Kurtz has been involved in 8 grants, including one as principal investigator of a multicenter study on the diagnosis and staging of ovarian cancer, awarded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health.
