Radiology-TEACHES is an online portal that uses case vignettes integrated with the ACR Select® clinical decision support (CDS) to simulate the process of ordering imaging studies via integrated CDS. ACR Select, a digital representation of the ACR Appropriateness Criteria® for diagnostic imaging, is a module contained within CareSelect Imaging.

Learners, including medical students, receive this evidence-based feedback at the virtual point of order entry, thereby better understanding appropriate imaging utilization and empowering them to reduce waste. 

Recognizing that medical education curricula often lack evidence-based guidance regarding appropriateness and cost of imaging examinations, radiologists at Baylor College of Medicine partnered with the American College of Radiology and the National Decision Support Company to create Radiology-TEACHES (Technology Enhanced Appropriateness Criteria Home for Education Simulation).

Radiology-TEACHES fulfills the AAMC Core Entrustable Professional Activities that physicians must be skillful, physicians must be dutiful, and physicians must be knowledgeable.

Radiology Student Assessment (STARS)

Standardized Tool for the Assessment of Radiology Students

A collaborative effort of the Alliance of Medical Student Educators in Radiology (AMSER) and the American College of Radiology (ACR), STARS provides medical schools with a national, web-based question-item database and exam-taking system to use in assessing students throughout their radiology courses.
