This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3.5 or 7 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. The student electing diagnostic radiology at The University of Tennessee Medical Center will observe radiology staff and residents performing daily radiographic work, advanced cross-sectional and nuclear imaging, fluoroscopic GI-GU procedures, and special procedures. The student will attend daily teaching rounds and work conferences. There are opportunities for oral presentations and other academic projects. The electives main goals are to educate the student regarding: (1) the broad spectrum of diagnostic imaging used in modern patient care, (2) the critical role radiologist-clinician communication plays in management (and mismanagement) of patients, (3) the imaging test-of-choice for most clinical problems, (4) radiological radiation, safety and cost issues, (5) what their patient experiences when they order various radiological procedures and tests, and (6) some basic (” viewbox”) imaging normal and abnormals.
