M90 Radiol 701General Radiology ClerkshipVar. Units (max = 77.0)
Description:This two-week introductory radiology elective allows students to rotate through four of the following radiology services; Emergency Radiology, Mammography, Pediatrics, Chest, Abdominal Imaging, Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology, Interventional Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. The primary course objective is to familiarize students with the scope of diagnostic and interventional radiology including the consulting role radiologists provide to primary care and specialty providers, risks/benefits and cost effectiveness of radiologic examinations, and guidelines for ordering common studies as well as specific disease entities and their radiologic appearance and work-up. Students spend the majority of the day in the radiology reading rooms with residents, fellows, and faculty for interactive teaching based on daily clinical cases. Students will attend morning case-based conferences and noon didactic conferences with the residents. The students will have an observational role in conferences and in the clinical setting. In the afternoon, students will convene with a radiology resident for an interactive workshop on a scheduled topic in radiology. The day prior to each workshop, students will receive a template Power-point form of the following day's workshop and are expected to spend the afternoon preparing for the next day's session. Students will be evaluated on their preparedness and participation in the afternoon workshops. On Friday afternoons, students will present an interesting case from the week in Power-Point format. Two Power-Point presentations will be submitted at the end of the rotation for grading. An image-based exam will be given in the final week of the elective covering topics presented in the daily student workshops. Reading lists, references and text books will be provided. The first and final days of the elective are mandatory. Grades will be based on daily attendance, workshop participation, end of the rotation exam, and submitted Power-Point presentations. More than 3 days absence will require exceptional work for honors. No honors will be awarded if a student is absent for more than five days of the rotation.

M90 Radiol 801General Radiology0.0 Unit
Description:Valid start weeks for 4-week blocks are: Weeks 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29, 33, 37, and 41.

This four-week introductory radiology elective allows students to rotate through four of the following radiology services; Pediatrics, Abdominal Imaging, Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology and Nuclear Medicine. Once workflow is back to pre-COVID baseline, other subspecialty rotations may be added in Emergency Radiology, Mammography, Chest, and Interventional Radiology. Until pre-COVID workflow is restored, this rotation will remain completely virtual. Preferences should be emailed at least two weeks prior to the course start date, and they are on a first come first serve basis, and cannot be guaranteed. The primary course objective is to familiarize students with the scope of diagnostic, and potentially interventional, radiology including the consulting role radiologists provide to primary care and specialty providers, risks/benefits and cost effectiveness of radiologic examinations, and guidelines for ordering common studies as well as specific disease entities and their radiologic appearance and work-up. If workflow returns to pre-COVID status, students spend the majority of the day in the radiology reading rooms with residents, fellows, and faculty for interactive teaching based on daily clinical cases. Students will attend morning case-based conferences and noon didactic conferences with the residents. The students will have an observational role in conferences and in the clinical setting. In the afternoon, students will attend virtual conferences in COVID workflow, or convene with a radiology resident once normal operations are resumed, for an interactive workshop on a scheduled topic in radiology. The day prior to each workshop, students might receive a template Power-point form of the following day's workshop and are expected to spend the afternoon preparing for the next day's session. Students will be evaluated on their preparedness and participation in the afternoon workshops. On Friday afternoons, students will present an interesting case from the week in Power-Point format. Three Power-Point presentations will be submitted at the end of the rotation for grading. Reading lists, references, and text books will be provided. The first day of the elective is mandatory. Grades will be based on daily attendance and interactions, workshop participation, and submitted Power-Point presentations. More than 3 days absence will require exceptional work for honors. No honors will be awarded if a student is absent for more than five days of the rotation.

The clinical service in Nuclear Medicine is divided into five subsections: outpatient general Nuclear Medicine, in-patient general Nuclear Medicine, PET, Pediatric, and Cardiac Nuclear Medicine. The recommended schedule will be to spend week 1 and 3 on the North Campus, where the emphasis will be on outpatient general and Pediatric Nuclear Medicine with some focused time spent in the PET reading room. Week 2 will be split between the in-patient general Nuclear Medicine and Cardiac services. Week 4 schedule will be determined after a preferences discussion with the student.

The clinical service in Nuclear Medicine (NM) is divided into five sections: outpatient general NM, inpatient general NM, Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Pediatric NM studies, NM Cardiac studies, and radionuclide therapy. The recommended schedule will be to spend weeks 1 and 3 in the Center for Advanced Medicine/BJH North Campus (second floor), where the emphasis will be on outpatient general and pediatric Nuclear Medicine with some time spent in the PET reading room. Week 2 will be in South Campus (West Pavilion 9th floor) and split between inpatient general nuclear medicine, outside PET facilities (morning), cardiac NM services (afternoon), and radionuclide therapy. The schedule for Week 4 will be Monday to Wednesday Center for Advanced Medicine/BJH North Campus and Thursday to Friday in South Campus. This rotation's primary objective is to provide exposure to the full range of clinical nuclear medicine studies. Under the direct supervision of the NM attendings, the student via ZOOM will participate in the planning and interpreting of imaging studies for patients referred to the Division. An opportunity also exists to explore instrumentation techniques, including dedicated computer applications utilized to interpret NM studies. In addition to the clinical experience, the student will attend the NM daily morning conference, held via ZOOM, from 8-9:00 a.m. Also, the student will be excused to attend via ZOOM the daily diagnostic radiology resident noon conference from 12-1:00 p.m. The student will also be able to attend any conferences within the Department of Radiology and case management conferences where NM studies are discussed.

Label

Home/Ident

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
