The radiology clerkships in the third and fourth years emphasize direct interaction with clinical diagnostic imaging and image guided therapies. Students are both involved with staff and resident radiologists in image interpretation at the work-station as well as image guided procedures. Additionally, students receive didactic instruction through daily conferences and lectures. Immersion in the radiology work flow enables students to gain a deeper understanding of both the scope and abilities of diagnostic imaging and helps prepare them for appropriate future utilization of imagine resources in their clinical careers. The clerkships also function to introduce interested students to radiology as a potential career pathway.
