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.

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.
