Elective Description: This elective designed to provide advanced experience in clinical pediatric radiology beyond that presented in the standard fourth year general radiology rotation.

The elective may be used to help develop an awareness of the range of services provided to Family Practice, outpatient, inpatient, and intensive care environments.

The student will be introduced to the range of techniques encompassed by the subspecialty.

The elective will provide an introduction to the demonstration and diagnosis of disease by radiologic techniques.  A short presentation of an associated topic is encouraged.
