“Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it has become a lost tradition.” This quote in The Practice of Radiology Education: Challenges and Trends expresses the book's underlying concern: that the reciprocal partnership between radiology teaching and education is vital and yet often neglected in academic radiology.
The Practice of Radiology Education —second in a series on radiology education—serves as a reference guide for readers interested in improving radiology teaching programs and resident education. Based primarily on the experiences of educators in the Department of Medical Imaging at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, the book presents an international perspective on how to best implement postgraduate training programs and improve radiology education. Although radiologists are the target audience, the book contains universal themes and recommendations for postgraduate physician education in any medical specialty. The authors' main goal is to emphasize the symbiotic relationship between teaching and education and to demonstrate its effective incorporation into residency training programs, both in theory and in practice.
