Human Anatomy-Radiology within the FOUNDATIONS Phase of the Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) Curriculum

First year. In conjunction with the gross anatomy lectures and laboratories, the Department of Radiology presents lectures and radiographs demonstrated in the laboratories with each of the major anatomic divisions of the body. The practical examination given in the Human Anatomy course also includes radiographs. 

Sophomore Electives

1.) Clinical Correlation: Anatomy, Pathology, and Radiology. During this elective students will

  • Correlate anatomic features and dissection objectives learned in the first year Human Anatomy course with radiologic images.
  • Describe clinically important anatomic features of pathologic conditions selected by the student.
  • Explain how clinical anatomy and pathology interact to produce characteristic clinical and imaging features.

2.) Radiology Quality and Safety - Educational objectives include:

  • To become familiar with the language, culture, and basic metrics of safety and quality in medicine.
  • To understand the rationale for the implementation of our quality strategic plan in radiology and its alignment with the Emory Healthcare quality goals.
  • To understand the importance of standardization in medicine.
  • To understand how to develop and use a checklist.

MD 745 Clinical Radiology

MD 745 is a 2 credit "virtual" radiology course integrated into the seven free standing clerkships during the Applications phase of the UME curriculum. The radiology presentations have been tailored to emphasize imaging features of diseases and conditions that students will encounter in the hospital wards and in clinic during the rotation the student is on. The virtual clerkship is structured as an introduction to the fundamentals of Radiology, including basics of Chest X-ray interpretation, recognition of 22 life or limb threatening imaging findings and principles of diagnostic testing. Typically included are lectures and small group sessions on genitourinary, gastrointestinal, cardiothoracic, pediatric, musculoskeletal and intervents are also taught using clinical radiology experiences, attendance at Radiology noon conference, assigned readings, and various electronic methods including podcasts. Graded portions of the rotation include small group and individual presentations, a practical exam and multiple written radiology exams given at the same time that students take their end rotation shelf exams. Letter grade.

Senior Electives

This four-week course allows the student concentrated exposure to real life radiology with the opportunity to rotate through the specific radiology department reading rooms. The central objectives of the course are to expose the student to the scope of radiology, to enhance the student's knowledge of radiologic imaging and introduce the student to imaging interpretation. Reading room assignments available to the student include abdominal imaging, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, breast imaging, neuroradiology, thoracic radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, emergency radiology and pediatric radiology.  Typically students spend a week in each of four of the different areas. Lectures for the students are given during the month covering topics in nuclear medicine, emergency radiology, neuroradiology, breast imaging, musculoskeletal radiology, thoracic imaging, interventional radiology, and general diagnostic radiology. Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.
