Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
AMIRSYS® previews its new RADPrimer® Learning Portal for Radiology Residents with the release of Version 3.0. This new release previews the transformation from RADPrimer 2.0, a case-based learning tool focused on making the right diagnosis to RADPrimer 3.0, a comprehensive radiology learning system with topic-driven lessons containing learning objectives, reading assignments, self-study assessment and pre- and post-learning quizzes. RADPrimer 3.0 now includes Physics & Safety assessments in addition to the 11 traditional radiology disciplines.
“RADPrimer 3.0 includes the vision and input of the Amirsys team as well as program directors and residents who have included RADPrimer in their education process since its introduction in 2010,” reports Dr. BJ Manaster, Professor of Radiology, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah.
“A key addition to RADPrimer is the lesson concept,” states Dr. Ric Harnsberger, Professor of Radiology at University of Utah School of Medicine and Co-CEO of Amirsys, Inc. “Each lesson is a prepackaged topic-driven learning module containing learning objectives, reading assignments, self-study assessments and pre- and post-study quizzes. Assigning a lesson is simple for the faculty, and facilitates a flexible learning process appropriate to 1st year through 4th year residents.”
RADPrimer, released in early 2010, is the first comprehensive 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 plus Physics & Safety to ensure that residents receive 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 challenges, deep-dive study into curriculum and track individual progress. The Academic Administrative Module for Faculty allows program directors to effortlessly lead residents through the curriculum; monitor improvement through pre- and post-tests; track resident performance and 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.
