Radiology Residency Curriculum, Goals and Objectives
The Radiology Residency Curriculum, Goals and Objectives is a dynamic document that is evolving and expanding to meet the educational needs of the residents. It is created under the supervision of the Residency Program Director with input from the residents, faculty and Department Residency Committee.
It should be referred to by the resident when first starting a rotation (to develop expectations), during the rotation (as a metric of progress) and at the end of the rotation (to measure achievement and to identify unfulfilled goals that need to be addressed by the resident and the faculty.) If the resident believes that the stated curriculum, goals, and objectives for that rotation were not fulfilled or that important goals were not included in the Curriculum, Goals and Objectives; then the resident should address these concerns with the faculty and/or Program Director.
Similarly, the faculty should periodically refer to the Curriculum, Goals and Objectives to ensure that they are current and that they are being achieved. As new rotations are developed, the Curriculum, Goals and Objectives are to be expanded. Finally the faculty should use the Curriculum, Goals and Objectives during the residents' rotations and on completion of their rotations to guide and evaluate the residents' learning.
To facilitate this process the Curriculum, Goals and Objectives is given to each resident and faculty member. Additionally copies of the relevant portion of the Curriculum, Goals and Objectives are placed in the residents' work areas for each individual rotation and in the residents' lounge.
