It aims to enhance observational, analytical and communication skills of radiology trainees in their 2nd year of RANZCR training whilst simultaneously providing a comprehensive foundation in critical and evaluative skills in image interpretation.

Students will acquire a broad range of competencies, knowledge and understanding of key radiological diagnoses across a variety of imaging modalities for effective patient management and care.

Teaching methods include lectures and interactive tutorial case based sessions facilitated by subspecialist expert radiologists and pathologists, with a focus on case based learning blueprinted to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) curriculum.

Assessment tasks include; Oral case based and formal written examinations.

Intended learning outcomes
