Resources for Mentors and Authors

Radiology-TEACHES Authoring

Are you a Radiology-TEACHES mentor, mentee or author? Share your experience with the program on social media using #RadiologyTEACHES!


“Radiology-TEACHES will expose students to the various imaging studies and help them learn which ones are safe and cost-effective based on a patient’s clinical condition. This evidence-based information is vital for them to experience prior to becoming trainees.”

Andrew C. Caruso, MD, assistant professor of medicine and director of Baylor’s internal medicine clerkship


“When you see the modules, they are so clear and so well presented. I found myself fascinated about learning this stuff. It’s mesmerizing. And it’s completely free!”

Alfred Sadler, MD, associate medical director at CSUMB 


“The students raved about their growing confidence with diagnostic tests. I cannot thank you enough for offering this as a free resource to healthcare professionals, which includes nurse practitioners!”

Ashley Scott, MSN, FNP-C, Family Nurse Practitioner Program Director, Henry Predolin School of Nursing, Edgewood College
