					Rotation Curriculum Goals & Objectives

                                     Pediatric Imaging

3rd Rotation (PGY3 or PGY4)

Rotation Goal

Refine knowledge of congenital anomalies. Expand skills to perform more complicated
fluoroscopic procedures, including therapeutic reduction of intussusception. Communicate
effectively with patients/families and to the referring clinicians. Independently dictate accurate
and concise reports for MRI’s and more difficult CT’s and ultrasounds. Teach and guide junior
residents and medical students.

Level of Supervision

Graduated responsibility based on skill level and medical knowledge under the direct
supervision of radiology faculty.

Teaching Methods

   •   one-on-one teaching by faculty in the reading rooms
   •   didactic conferences
   •   case conferences
   •   journal club/colloquia presented by residents
   •   self-directed textbook study
   •   case-based teaching: residents present one interesting case every day and discuss
   •   prepare one topic daily from “Top 20 Pediatric Emergency Topics” – based on the
       ABR/SPR Guidelines

Assessment Methods

   •   online evaluations by faculty at end of each rotation (New Innovations)
   •   360-degree evaluations by radiology nurses and technicians at end of each rotation
   •   direct feedback from faculty during the rotation
   •   regular meetings with assigned mentors

Program Evaluations

   •   online evaluation of rotation by residents at the end of each four-week rotation
   •   quarterly evaluation of individual faculty effectiveness (online)
   •   bi-annual evaluation of program for review by Medical Education Committee (online)
