Innovations in #FOAMed: Using G-Suite to Teach Radiology to Medical Students through Academic Writing

•A longstanding gap in medical student education continues to be the delayed exposure to radiology (1-4). This exposure often comes later as an elective, usually after most medical students have decided on which medical specialty to pursue. More recently, there is a call for radiology to be introduced into the basic science curriculum at medical schools across the country [1-4].

•The concepts of pathophysiology that are mastered during the preclinical years are often lost later on. These concepts could be maintained by studying disease with imaging, and making appropriate clinical-pathologic associations early on in medical school that carry over into clinical clerkships.

•Students hoping to appreciate the frequent use of imaging science in their careers lack an educational foundation of the critical thinking processes of radiologists.
 
•We propose that these skills are attainable during the medical undergraduate years through academic writing and the creation of a teaching file-based simulator for radiology education.
 

How can you get basic science medical students excited about radiology?

•We propose it comes from doing radiology, rather than observing radiology, with some insight into effectiveness from the literature (5,6).
•The use of simulation in education is detailed in the literature.
•We believe introducing radiology thought process in the basic science curriculum helps to:
•Solidify concepts in basic science, introduce radiology as a viable career option early in medical education basic science.
•Exposure happens through experience.
•Adding a creative element and completing a finished project helps to ensure learning.
 
How is it done?
  • Our method is to empower medical students to author evidence-based teaching files in radiology, based on cases that are used in radiology simulation for the further education of medical students. Our concept is outlined in the flowchart below (Figure 1)

  • This e-poster will  focus on guiding the reader in:

  1. How to use the google office suite as a free, widely available, browser-based tool that allows for the creation of documents, presentation slides, spreadsheets, and survey forms that can be adapted for the teaching of radiology to medical students.

  2. Using  Google Suite as a medium for educational teaching file creation in Radiology, and contribute to building a radiology simulator.

  3. Building  a radiology simulator with minimal resources with the ability to track student progress and learning depth.
