Radiology Clerkship

Radiology Clerkship Group
First Radiology Clerkship Group

The Radiology Clerkship is a brand new mandatory rotation for third-year UMass Chan medical students, as part of the Explorations Phase of the new VISTA curriculum. The innovative and hands-on curriculum was developed over the course of 1.5  years by the  Radiology Clerkship build team consisting of Ryan Tai, MD, the director of the Radiology Clerkship; Maria Barile, MD, the VISTA longitudinal biomedical director of imaging; Julia Rissmiller, MD; medical students Jack Hanna, Alli Holt, and Jay Patel; and radiology residents Christine Yao, MD and Joseph Jacob, MD. The clerkship is one week and occurs once a month.

The first group of medical students started their Radiology Clerkship on April 1. Over the course of the week, the medical students learned the fundamentals of radiology, practiced reading “must know” and “do not miss” cases on a PACS, and crafted radiology reports. They were able to use the innovative and state-of art Radiology Clerkship room (SA-305).
