Course Code: MDRD RD2 TMC

Course Description

All students are required to complete a two week experience in diagnostic imaging and its role in patient care. Students attend lectures and spend time in several of the imaging areas within the radiology department and interact with the radiologist as the results are interpreted and dictated. This experience offers opportunity to correlate patient clinical presentation and findings with the results from the appropriate diagnostic imaging exam(s). During the two weeks, students are required to complete an assigned programmed text on the principles of chest Roentgenology. This requirement can be met through a 2 or 4 week radiology course at any accredited academic health science center.
