Radiology

Medical Student Education

The UC Department of Radiology maintains a strong commitment to education fostered by such luminary radiologists as Benjamin Felson, MD, and Jerome Wiot, MD, and carried on by the current faculty. Radiology education for medical students is a key component of this mission.

Radiology plays a central and integral role in the care of almost all patients in the medical system. All physicians are involved with or exposed to radiology as part of their daily practice. One of the major goals of medical student education is to expose students to this exciting profession in the hope that many will consider it as a career option.

For those students who choose to practice in other fields, knowledge of radiology remains critical to best utilize imaging resources for their patient's benefit. These facts form the basis for our medical student curriculum.

In 2013, the College of Medicine moved to a new curriculum that is based on Anatomical Systems Blocks and the Radiology Department has dedicated lectures throughout the first and second years within these blocks. In addition, Radiology has adjusted to provide additional lectures to the third year class as part of the new curriculum, noted as intersession lectures.

A two-week clerkship in radiology had been required of all third-year students at the College of Medicine; since July, 2013 this clerkship is an elective.

In the fourth year of medical school, we offer one-month elective clerkships for UC College of Medicine students as well as visiting students from other institutions.

UC Department of Radiology Education Committee

The UC Department of Radiology Education Committee, chaired by Eric England, MD, is responsible for the medical student curriculum.

The Education Committee includes physicians from most of the clinical radiology sections, representatives from the radiology residency (including the chief residents), and our administrative support staff.

The committee meets monthly to assess our educational programs and plan future curriculum changes. The committee works closely with the College of Medicine dean's office and Clinical Biennium Curriculum Committee. The committee is constantly assessing the results of our clerkships and student feedback in an effort to continually improve the medical student experience.
