Aim: to teach medical students principles of radiology during their clinical posting in Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as during bulk special posting in Radiology. The radiology course assumes a basic knowledge of radiologic anatomy and pathology appropriate review and teaching of new concepts will be undertaken.
Clinical students will be taught principles of radiology throughout the year through seminars, during clinical posting in Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, as well as during special posting in Radiology.
Radiology is to expose clinical students to full working of the Departments. The radiology course assumes a basic knowledge of radiologic anatomy and pathology but appropriate review and teaching of new concepts will be undertaken
