Medical Student Education

In modern medicine, the discipline of radiology plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Regardless of whether physicians choose to practice primary care or one of the specialties, they will find that imaging and image-guided therapy play an integral role in the practice of medicine. Cross-sectional and plain film imaging have been integrated into the human function course during the first trimester of medical school training, under the direction of Julie Champine, M.D., FACR.

The Department of Radiology at UT Southwestern offers numerous opportunities for medical students to learn about the field of radiology with an emphasis on providing a better understanding of available imaging modalities, appropriate evidence-based use of imaging, and the role of radiology in the care of patients through a collegial educational environment and direct interaction with world-class faculty, and access to advanced imaging equipment.
