This rotation will provide an exposure to the role of imaging in pediatric patient care. It is an ideal rotation for anyone interested in pediatrics, pediatric subspecialties, or in radiology. The rotation will offer the medical student an introduction to the importance of imaging and the role of the pediatric radiologist in the pediatric health care system. The physician in training will gain experience in radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, and MRI as they apply to children.
To aid the medical student in meeting the above mentioned objectives, the student will participate in all read outs with the pediatric radiology faculty, will attend inter-disciplinary conferences and will review prepared teaching materials for self-study. Medical students will be present during the decision-making process, planning, and management of patients.
See Course Description above.
