About this book

This is a book about scholarship in the broadest sense. The writing of this book has shown how through scholarship we can bring together academics, practitioners, scientists, radio logists, and administrators from around the world to begin the kinds of conversations that promise to move us to a new way of thinking about and enacting radiology education. Over the past century, we have witnessed tremendous change in biomedical science and the scope of this change has demanded new approaches to medical education. The most significant of the changes in medical education has been a fundamental paradigm shift from a teacher-centered approach to a student-centered approach. This shift, c- bined with the explosion of knowledge, has pressed medical schools to undertake major curricular and institutional reform. At the same time, progress in medical education research methods has led to innovative approaches to support the improvement of learning methods and evaluation. Over the past several years there has also been a shift toward thinking about and planning for medical education beyond the undergraduate level to include postgraduate and continuing medical education, but also to consider learning within the professional environment and the development of professional continuous education. Viewing medical education as a continuum that spans from the first year of medical school until retirement introduces new ways to conceptualize the teaching and learning needs that address lifelong learning demands that extend over 30 or 40 years.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Radiology Education is the first book to address radiology education from the perspective of scholarship of teaching and learning and was written by experts and medical professionals from around the world to assist in training the next generation of radiologists in their expanding roles. … This book should be a useful resource for anyone interested in training radiologists.” (Michelle Gentile and William Small Jr., Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (5), 2010)

“This unique book covers an interesting topic on scholarships focusing on academics, practitioners, scientists, radiologists and administrators in order to move forward, thus improving radiology education. … cover all important areas on teaching and learning defining the scholarship of teaching and especially the interdisciplinary learning and objectives. … provide new information on scholarships of teaching and learning. Due to its multinational information provided it is of importance for all involved in the area of radiological education.”­­­ (Th. J. Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 21, 2011)
