Radiology App for Undergraduate Students

Title Radiology App for Undergraduate Students
Faculty/College/Unit Medicine
Status Active
Duration 1 Year
Initiation 04/01/2016
Project Summary

The medical undergraduate school curriculum has a longitudinal radiology curriculum that spans the four years of medical training. During the pre-clerkship years (i.e. years 1&2), students learn to recognize normal radiographic anatomy and during the clerkship years (i.e. years 3&4), students learn to identify the patterns of disease. This proposal is for a free Undergraduate Radiology iOS, android and windows mobile app that allows students to review radiology images and to quiz themselves in preparation for their exams and for clinical practice. The app will be organized by year of medical school and designed to meet the learning objectives of the renewed medical undergraduate curriculum. To date, there has been no published data regarding the use of a radiology app at the undergraduate level.
