How do I start?

Getting started can be the most daunting aspect. To find the resources, go to the Medical Student Curriculum and choose the topic desired and the educational methodology that best fits your needs. After your selection, you will you find images, guides and other materials you can use to get started.

What constitutes a resource?

A resource can be materials that are instructional and either administered by an educator or self-administered by students. Targeted lectures and all educational materials are welcome, including public free websites, articles, checklist, video or any other format that will supply information to help faculty prepare a radiology curriculum or provide educational resources for medical students directly.

Who can submit tools?

We will review and potentially accept tool submissions from all types of healthcare professionals. All resources are evaluated to ensure that materials are up to date, accurate and minimize duplication with existing materials. Educational components are designed to be efficient for the users, limiting the time spent on isolating and successfully teaching the desired objectives. Click on the Suggest a Resource and complete the form.

Who reviews the tools?

Our resources are reviewed by our panel consisting of volunteer radiologists. Once the resource is reviewed and approved, it will be posted to the curriculum under the appropriate section(s) for general public use.
