In an effort to tailor the elective to individual student desires, a conference between the student and the elective director should take place the first day of the elective. Unless tailored by the student and director, each elective will follow the guidelines as listed below:

  1. Familiarize the student with equipment and performance of radiographic examinations from the viewpoint of patients, referring physicians and the radiologist.
  2. Discuss and participate with radiology faculty in interpretation of examinations of the skeletal system, the chest and cardiovascular systems, the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tract.
  3. A designated period of time should be directed to special procedures. As appropriate this should include angiography, sonography, CT scanning, MR imaging, nuclear radiology and interventional procedures.
  4. Lastly, the student will assume increasing responsibility in complicated case reviews, study and review of pathological materials and files, and select and submit appropriate cases for inclusion in institutional teaching files.
  5. Throughout the elective, the student will attend intra-departmental and inter-departmental conferences. As appropriate, developing and presenting one or more intra-departmental presentations.
  6. Evaluation will include ongoing discussion and critiques between the student and participating radiology faculty during the elective.
  7. Attendance is required during usual working hours.
