AMSER has developed a 4-year curriculum identifying the radiological topics that the organization feels should be covered during medical school education. The curriculum also includes links to educational resources, example goals and objectives, and suggestions for how to incorporate the curriculum into various educational formats. The curriculum can be downloaded HERE.
AMSER and the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU) have developed an ultrasound curriculum for medical students. The curriculum addresses the basic question: “What should a student graduating from medical school know about US?” The curriculum highlights what aspects of US should be taught to medical students, as well as when and how US can be most effectively introduced into medical school preclinical and clinical curricula. 2 different models for implementation are included.The curriculum can be downloaded HERE.
AMSER has developed an outline of key competencies that medical students should achieve in radiology during the 4-years of medical school based on the LCME competencies. This document incorporates elements of the AMSER curriculum as well as suggestions for learning and assessment tools.
These competencies may be useful for:

The following learning objectives for radiology were developed by Emily Webb, MD (UCSF), and categorized both by the type of course (anatomy, 2nd year, 4th year elective, etc) as well as by the subject (general radiology, chest imaging, neuroimaging, etc). For each objective, the Blooms Taxonomy level(s) is/are identified.
