Recommended Prerequisite: Medical students only.
Students will rotate through the various subspecialty areas of chest/mammography, musculoskeletal, fluoro, neuroradiology, body CT, interventional radiology, pediatrics, and nuclear medicine. Rotations may be assigned at University Hospital or the VA Hospital. Pediatric radiology is at Primary Children's Medical Center. In addition to daily reading sessions, students are invited to attend radiology conferences in the morning as well as at noon. A one hour conference in the afternoon is given by radiology faculty to the students covering all areas of radiology. Each student will be required to complete an oral presentation outlining a problem and an algorithmic approach to the work-up with appropriate imaging studies. This is given in the final week of the elective to peers and radiology faculty members. Course grade depends on weekly evaluations, attendance, and the presentation in the last week of the course. There is an examination based on the information presented in the faculty lectures and reading assignments.
