Radiology Department Mission Statement

Welcome!  The mission of the Department of Radiology is to provide education in all disciplines of radiology to the medical, graduate and health sciences students at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.

The Department operates under the auspices of The Chicago Medical School of the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.

The Department offers medical students instruction in all radiology modalities.  Electives, conducted by faculty, are offered during the sophomore and senior years. The sophomore electives are held on campus and consist of didactic and interactive lectures. The senior electives are clerkships offered at affiliated hospital sites.  Some may include supplemental lectures held on campus (see course listings).  In addition, faculty members of the Department participate in teaching programs offered through other departments in all Schools of the Rosalind Franklin University.

Faculty members seek to develop in students sound decision making  regarding the selection of imaging exams and incorporation of the results into the care of their patients.  They also strive to teach a thorough understanding of proper indications and contra-indications in radiological procedures in both the ambulatory and in-patient care settings.

The Department of Radiology calls upon faculty and clinical resources located in hospitals throughout the Chicago metropolitan area which are associated with Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.
