Course Description:

This 4 week rotation will have the Radiology PGY1 residents working together as a team, and alongside MSc Clinical Anatomy students from the Dept of Anatomy& Cell Biology.  There may be residents from other PGY programs present as well.  Residents will spend time dissecting cadavers and working with prosections, depending on resource availability each year.  The residents may work on the various body areas (Thorax, Abd, Pelvis, Upper Limb, Lower Limb, Spine, Head and Neck, Face) to the extent they wish.

In working alongside anatomy students, the Radiology Residents will benefit from the anatomy students’ strengths in detailed anatomy.  The Radiology residents, in turn, will share their knowledge of imaging anatomy in the following ways:









Evaluation: 80% attendance and completion of dissection and weekly presentations
Based on:
-  daily performance with input from Anatomy faculty and students
-  presentations made weekly
-  ITER at end of rotation.

Grad Students must complete all components of the course to pass and for progression in the program.

Policy on Accommodation for Medical Illness
Students are expected to attend the specified lab and presentation sessions.  If a student must be absent from regularly scheduled presentations he/she is expected to contact the course instructor or coordinator and excuse himself/herself.  A student requiring academic accommodation due to illness, should use the Student Medical Certificate when visiting an off-campus medical facility or request a Record's Release Form (located in the Dean's Office) for visits to Student Health Services.
The form can be found at:

Accommodation for Medical Illness is required for absences from tests.  Documentation is not required for work or attendance worth less than 10% of the total course grade. When documentation is required for missing a presentation evaluation, such documentation must be submitted by the student directly to the instructor.

Statement of Academic Offences:

Scholastic offences are taken seriously and students are directed to read the appropriate policy, specifically, the definition of what constitutes a Scholastic Offence, at the following Web site: .

Senate regulations require ALL instructors to include the following statements on plagiarism, cheating and proficiency in English in the course outline:

“Students must write their essays and assignments in their own words.  Whenever students take an idea or passage from another author, they must acknowledge their debt both by using quotation marks where appropriate and by proper referencing such as footnotes or citations.  Plagiarism is a major academic offence (see Scholastic Offence Policy in the Western Academic Calendar).”
