Free Radiology and Clinical Decision Support Content for Medical Student Educators

The ACR in collaboration with the Association of University Radiologists (AUR) and the Alliance of Medical Student Educators in Radiology (AMSER) is now offering the medical student community the following education content in radiology and clinical decision support – free of charge.

Standardized Tool for Assessing Radiology Students (STARS)

To provide medical students with the best possible tools for their education and assessment, AMSER and ACR are offering the STARS program to medical student program administrators. 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.

Individual registrations must be set up through the medical student program administrators. If you are interested in enrolling your institution in STARS, please complete the online form .

Radiology-Technology Enhanced Appropriateness Criteria Home for Education Simulation (Radiology-TEACHES)

Radiology-TEACHES addresses the gap in curricula on appropriateness criteria and cost of imaging examinations through use of case vignettes to simulate the process of ordering imaging studies. Learners receive evidence-based feedback at the virtual point of order entry, thereby better understanding appropriate imaging utilization and empowering them to reduce waste. To take part in this program register your institution.

Medical student authoring opportunities are also available through Radiology-TEACHES. Interested medical students should complete the following form .

The ACR Leadership is pleased to provide these educational programs free of charge to medical students, educators, and institutions. Medical students are a vital part of the ACR mission, and we make it a high priority to educate students about the field. We hope these resources will provide medical students further insight into the profession and encourage them to consider radiology as a career path.
