AMIRSYS® announces the expansion of RADPrimer® Learning Portal for Radiology Residents with the release of Version 1.9. RADPrimer, http://www.radprimer.com, adds new Anatomy Curriculum, Pre-Call assessment, and significantly expands Case Challenge assessment.
“Pre-Call assessment was the number one request from our program directors,” reports Paula Woodward, MD. “This customizable exam helps residents prepare for on-call responsibilities, assessing their knowledge of “can’t miss” cases. The core pre-call exam of 50 sequestered cases can be customized by adding additional cases from a bank of 250 cases designed to accurately represent a real life on-call situation.”
“The addition of Sequestered Case Challenges unavailable to residents, and Assignment Performance Reporting provide radiology faculty the ability to validate resident performance,” remarks Ric Harnsberger, MD.
RADPrimer, released in early 2010, is the first online learning portal created specifically to meet the needs of both radiology residents and program directors. RADPrimer provides educational content aligned to the curriculum for radiology residents and provides residents a means to master this curriculum through both learning and testing modes. This competency-based curriculum covers the 11 core disciplines for radiology residency to insure that residents are receiving sufficient training in all areas, and provides residents with easy access to high-quality educational materials while also facilitating program instruction and resident self-study.
RADPrimer is composed of two separate modules that meet the respective needs of residents and program directors. The resident module allows residents to master content in all 11 core disciplines of radiology, self-assess with unknown case challenge, deep-dive study into curriculum and track individual progress. The Academic Administrative Module allows program directors to create and assign quizzes in 11 core disciplines, track resident performance & study time, monitor statistics by resident, year, or program, and produce summary report documentation for ACGME records. RADPrimer is available to residents, residency programs, or both as an annual subscription.
