The ACR Committee of Government and Regulatory Issues in Academic Radiology developed this compendium of short, online, open-source training modules that is intended to help training programs meet the ACGME requirement for residents to participate in quality projects. This lecture series features experts in the area of pedagogical training in radiology who are also recognized for their expertise in the methods and tools of quality assessment and quality improvement.

We welcome residents and residency training programs to use this free resource, and we thank the speakers and staff for sharing their time and talent to bring this project to fruition.
