Diploma of Specialized Studies - Radiology

Hybrid

Mission

The mission of the diagnostic radiology residency program is to offer rich and diverse clinical experiences, a didactic curriculum, mentoring, and opportunities to train and educate residents to become experts in their field, skilled in their practice, excellent team workers and devoted teachers. X rays, ultrasounds, magnetic resonance and other technologies to come will transform them to the “eyes” of modern medicine.
The radiology program promotes the use of therapeutic skills in interventional radiology.

Program Educational Objectives

1. Graduates must use...
their basic and clinical knowledge acquired during their pre-graduate and postgraduate path in order to diagnose and in some cases treat.
2. Must help colleagues for the best diagnosis and treatment of the patient.
3. Must improve their knowledge and skills in parallel to the new technological discoveries and put them to the service of patients according to the rules of professionalism and ethics.
4. Have to practice their profession in accordance with the principles of quality, in particular the principles of efficiency and equity.

Program Outcomes

At the end of the program, the young radiologists will:
a. Master the basic, clinical and technical knowledge in order to propose diagnosis.
b. Acquire deep knowledge in other specialties (all).
c. Be able to take charge of a patient and provide expertise in a team working for the best treatment.
d. Be prepared to use new knowledge and new techniques to improve their practice.
e. Master the gestures and techniques (diagnostic and treatment) proper to the specialty and apply them according to the rules of professionalism and ethics.
f. Collaborate with other clinicians, respecting the principle of efficiency and in the best interest of the patient.
g. Share their knowledge with peers, students and other healthcare professionals.

Common Core
MEDR910Medical Emergencies
3 credits
This course helps residents recognize urgent situations requiring immediate intervention. It describes an appropriate diagnostic approach and teaches them to apply the basic principles of management with proper prioritization of solving problems and taking actions.
MEDR911Non-trauma Urgent Surgical Situations
3 credits
This course allows residents to understand and evaluate non traumatic emergencies and classify clinical syndromes. Residents study the circumstances and the know-how to establish a diagnostic approach. They learn how to master the urgent actions to be executed and chart the course of action and ensure medical care.
MEDR903Semiology in Radiology
3 credits
The course enables residents to identify, understand and interpret radiologic signs in different pathologies.
MEDR906Trauma
3 credits
This course allows residents to understand and evaluate traumatic emergencies and classify clinical syndromes. They become familiar with the study of the circumstances and the know-how to establish a diagnostic approach. They learn to master the urgent actions to be executed and chart the course of action and ensure medical care.

MEDR930ASeminars and Conferences
Seminars and conferences represent both a learning and assessment tool knowing that the theoretical education of the resident remains mostly a personal work that begins with reading books and articles, preparing conferences and is ongoing with continuing medical education and self­learning (erudition). During development, the “apprentice doctors” must initially attend and listen to their elders, then submit records to the staff, then present lectures to peers and seniors locally (hospital) and in a local congress and finally in an international congress. In parallel and concerning teaching, it begins with clinical teaching to the youngest and finishes during university courses.
