Medical Students

The Department of Radiology has been committed to becoming fully integrated into the four-year medical student curriculum, beginning on day 1 of medical school in the MD 814 Clinical Anatomy and Radiology course.

 In 2012, the College of Medicine established the position of Radiology Discipline Coordinator for Andres (Andy) Ayoob. Dr. Ayoob has worked tirelessly to fulfill the Department’s goals of complete and meaningful integration of radiology into all appropriate courses throughout the basic science and clinical experience years of medical student education. Dr. Ayoob has been promoted to Assistant Dean for Educational Faculty Development, and continues to be involved in medical student education throughout the curriculum.

In 2017, Joseph Owen, MD became the second Radiology Discipline Coordinator, and continues to work on integrating and strengthening radiology education throughout the medical school curriculum.
