The Department of Radiology is integrally involved in all four years of undergraduate medical education. With the implementation of the new curriculum, the Department of Radiology is involved in many aspects of the first and second year medical student education.
The Department of Radiology also presents instructional programs in the third and fourth years of the medical school curriculum. The programs provide a foundation of radiologic skills which will serve as the basis for continued study and clinical practice in all fields of medicine.
In the third year, a course in Introductory Diagnostic Radiology is integrated with the Medicine III clerkship. The course covers the entire spectrum of diagnostic radiology, including Nuclear Medicine, Pediatric and Neuroradiology, Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
For senior students, electives are available in all areas of Radiology and range in duration from two to four weeks. The content of these electives varies with some students electing a clinical experience, while others may work with a specific attending on an individually arranged project.
