Course Content

Clinical Training in Radiology (elective) is part of the sixth year of undergraduate studies, in the 11th and 12th semesters and has a duration of 2 weeks.
Small groups of up to five students are rotated through all Radiology departments. Students follow the full program of the Laboratory. They familiarize with all diagnostic radiology procedures but also with the therapeutic procedures of interventional radiology – neuroradiology.
Additionally, in association with the academic staff of the Laboratory, students follow the procedure of medical reporting and learn to interpret the imaging study findings in the context of the clinical picture and medical history of the patient. Students also attend the educational activities of the department, which include morning lectures and meetings with physicians of various specialties. Students also attend a series of lectures on the basic principles of imaging modalities and also on radiation protection issues.
In order to familiarize with emergency cases, students must spend on-call time once in the Radiology department
