CORE

Case-based Online Radiology Education (CORE) is MedU's virtual patient program for medical students studying radiology.  

In an era of cost-containment and increasing importance of evidence-based decision making, yet with increased reliance on imaging, having a basic understanding of the principles and applications of medical imaging is vital. The National Board of Medical Examiners has recognized this by increasing the imaging component of all United States Medical Licensing Examination exams. CORE currently includes 19 interactive virtual patient cases which encompass the learning objectives of the Association of University Radiologists (AUR) and the Alliance of Medical Student Educators in Radiology (AMSER) National Medical Student Radiology Curriculum.

CORE cases teach a patient-centered approach to imaging, foster self-directed and independent study, and build clinical problem-solving skills. They utilize the American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness criteria to teach an evidence-based approach to imaging and also link students to additional excellent interactive radiology resources on the Web.

These cases can be used as a stand-alone radiology course during a radiology clerkship or elective, or be incorporated into the appropriate clinical clerkships. For example, the women's imaging cases can be taken during the Ob-Gyn clerkship, the neuroimaging cases during the Neurology clerkship, thus teaching imaging at a time they can apply it. CORE may be used as a single MedU module or as an adjunct to other MedU courses.
