Medical Student Clerkship in Radiology: RDI 461

Course Overview

This 4 week clerkship will give each 4th year medical student an opportunity to learn about various subspecialties within radiology, tailored toward the interest of each student.  Each medical student will be placed on 1 week blocks of the “core” aspects of radiology – body imaging, chest radiology, and interventional radiology.  Additionally, based upon each medical student's educational goals, he/she will be placed within one other section of radiology for 1 week.  These sections may include: musculoskeletal radiology, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, or pediatric radiology.  Medical students attend daily noon conferences that are tailored toward medical imaging for medical students. Students will also attend subspecialty conferences provided by each respective section.

Grades are determined by attendance, evaluations, and presentations.  Attendance is composed of presence and participation within the rotation and lectures.  Students are excused up to 3 days for residency interviews. If a student misses more than 3 days while on the rotation, he/she may receive an additional assignment or need to make up missed day(s).   Evaluations are based upon professionalism, communication, and clinical skills.  Each medical student will be responsible for preparing a total of 2 case presentations (students on subspecialty 2 week rotations will also be expected to prepare one presentation for each 2 week block).  These presentations will occur during an allotted time noted on the teaching conference schedule.
