Diagnostic Radiology

  1. 1. DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY PART II - 2008 THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF CANADA PART II PRE-SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY University: Name of Program Director: Date of Review: Sites Participating in this Program: Program Website / URL: 1
  2. 2. IV. RESOURCES Standard B.4 "There must be sufficient resources including teaching faculty, the number and variety of patients, physical and technical resources, as well as the supporting facilities and services necessary to provide the opportunity for all residents in the program to achieve the educational objectives and receive full training as defined by the specialty training requirements in the specialty or subspecialty." Where the resources to provide "full training" are not available at the sponsoring university, several different types of inter-university affiliations may be negotiated, as stated in the grey book "General Information Concerning Accreditation of Residency Programs." It should be noted that the exchange of residents between two fully accredited programs does not require an inter-university affiliation. 1. Teaching Faculty List by teaching site the members of the teaching faculty who have a major role in this program, including members from other departments. In indicating a subspecialty, use as a criterion whether he or she is considered by colleagues as a subspecialist and functions academically and professionally as one. Teaching Site Name University Rank Specialty Qualifications Subspecialty (If any) Nature of Interaction with Resident (e.g. clinical, teaching, research) What percentage of faculty listed above (#2.) have been practising in the specialty/subspecialty: < 15 years % > 25 years %

  10. 10. 12. Physical Facilities for Teaching Describe the resources and facilities available for teaching, such as space for resident consultation areas, seminar rooms, and teaching files. A separate description is required for each participating institution. In what areas are residents given training in soft copy reporting? 13. Nuclear Medicine Describe the organization of the nuclear medicine service(s) involved in the residency program in diagnostic radiology 14. Ultrasonography Outline the organization of the service(s) providing training in ultrasound for residents in radiology. Indicate the level of involvement of residents in the details of operation of the equipment. 15. CT Scanning (Computed Tomography) Describe the facilities available for training in the techniques of CT scanning, and indicate the arrangements for instruction of residents. 16. Magnetic Resonance Scanning Describe the facilities available for training in the techniques of magnetic resonance imaging and indicate the arrangements for instruction of residents. Outline the type and age of equipment used for instruction of residents. 17. Pathology Describe the arrangements for training in pathology. Comment on the volume and variety of pathological material available for study, with particular reference to correlative studies. 18.

  11. 11. DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY 11 PART II - 2008 Outline the organization of the services providing training in conventional radiography. 20. Supporting Clinical Services Identify other departments, divisions or services that provide training for residents in diagnostic radiology. Describe the arrangements whereby training in internal medicine and general surgery is coordinated to ensure that the experience provided meets the educational needs of residents. Record any relevant information concerning liaison for training purposes with other supporting services such as pediatrics, clinical pharmacology, cardiology, orthopedic surgery or urology. Mention any other units or services, including facilities not attached to teaching hospitals that provide opportunities for clinical experience on either a mandatory or elective basis. 21. Consultations Describe the arrangements for residents to gain primary experience in handling consultations. 22. Intensive Care, Emergency and Ambulatory Care Facilities Describe the facilities that provide experience in the provisions of radiological services to critically ill and injured patients, emergency cases including patients in the emergency department, and in ambulatory care facilities. 23. Summary of Adequacy of Resources Comment on the adequacy of the resources in the overall residency program, with particular reference to the relationship between such resources and the number of residents dependent upon them. Include consideration of the following questions: Are there significant areas where the workload of the teachers (clinical care, undergraduate teaching, etc.) is such as to affect adversely the continuous supervision and instruction of residents in diagnostic radiology? Are the numbers of patients and examinations available for teaching sufficient to provide for the training of residents rotating from other residency programs and services, without adverse affects on the training of residents in diagnostic radiology? Are the diagnostic and basic science facilities available to the program sufficient to provide adequate teaching for residents in diagnostic radiology in addition to other residents sharing the same facilities?
