Medical Student Radiology Externs: Increasing Exposure to Radiology, Improving Education, and Influencing Career Choices
Journal of the American College of Radiology, 07/03/2012
Dobre MC et al. – This radiology externship program increases exposure to radiology in a positive fashion, increases understanding of the appropriate use of imaging modalities and their associated clinical benefits and risks, and influences medical students' career choices. These results add to the evidence that this type of program is mutually beneficial to medical students, residents, and clinical colleagues and suggest that more medical schools and radiology departments should evaluate the feasibility of starting radiology externship programs.
