About this book

The role of medical imaging is increasingly integral to health care, drug discovery, biology, and other life sciences. The changes that are occurring call for innovation in the training of the medical imaging experts of tomorrow. In their previous book, Radiology Education: The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (2008), the editors addressed the philosophical and theoretical underpinnings of scholarship in radiology education. Now, in The Practice of Radiology Education: Challenges and Trends, they focus on the application of these concepts within educational programs for radiology residents and fellows. The book has three sections on Curriculum, Programs and Trainees, and Leadership and Resources. Within this framework, each chapter addresses theory and principles, practical issues, and resources and literature relevant to educational practice. The contributors are educators in radiology from around the world, providing a global perspective on the main challenges facing medical imaging education and the potential strategies required to meet these challenges. It is hoped that the book will assist in attaining the ultimate goal of radiology education: to help patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to provide a practical guide to the development of effective educational programs for future radiologists. … This book is directed at anyone interested in radiology education, particularly program directors, program coordinators, radiologists, physicists, or any other educators. … unique in its intent and specific focus on radiology as a specialty. … It could be useful to anyone who has a strong interest in improving radiology education.” (James Milburn, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2011)

“The aim and scope of the book is to provide assistance and guidance to radiology educators worldwide in designing radiologist training programs. Its target market is the radiologist-educator. … The book answers the need for collaborative discussion on the nature and methods of teaching in radiology. … The organization is adequate and the writing is clear. The quality of the physical book is excellent … . Figures and illustrations are used appropriately. There are no major omissions. In summary, the book fulfills its intended purpose.” (Todd D. Greenberg, Radiology, Vol. 260 (2), August, 2011)

“This book aims to give working examples of how to achieve high quality training and through this deliver improved patient care. It brings together educational thinking with practical examples from various parts of the globe. As such it is targeted at those with a keen interest and understanding of educational theory as it is applied to radiology. … A strength of the book is its ability to draw on real working examples of radiology training in a variety of settings.” (Ian Francis, RAD Magazine, March, 2012)
