ESR eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology
In the past few years, one of the main commitments of the ESR has been the improvement of the quality of radiology education throughout Europe and beyond. A lot has already been done for trainees and radiologists. At the same time, the ESR also dedicates many resources to undergraduates, to make radiology appealing to young, brilliant medical students. To that end, the Education Committee and the Undergraduate Education Subcommittee of the ESR have developed a unique educational project for undergraduates – eBook for Undergraduate Education in Radiology.
The eBook is created to serve medical students, but also residents in their first year(s) of training, as well as academic teachers to understand and teach radiology as a whole coherent discipline, respectively. Its contents are based on the Undergraduate Level of the ESR European Training Curriculum for Radiology and summarize the so-called core elements that may be considered as the basics that every medical student should be familiar with. The eBook is divided in chapters with content of each chapter prepared by foremost experts in that field. And perhaps most importantly, the eBook can be freely accessed by everyone on the ESR website.
After the successful publishing of chapters on Bile Ducts, Small Bowel, Large Bowel and Musculoskeletal Imaging, the 4 recently published chapters feature Cardiac Imaging, Paediatric Imaging, Central Nervous System and Ultrasound. This is an ongoing project and new chapters will be added in the future.
