American University of Beirut

Clerkship Program

​​​​​​As Medical Imaging has become more central to the practice of medicine it has become increasingly important for medical students to be familiar with the basic principles of radiology, the different imaging modalities available and how they can be best utilized, as well as the role imaging holds in the current medical system.

Several lectures in the first two years of medical education introduce medical students to the basic principles of radiology and the different imaging modalities. As well, cross-sectional imaging studies are included in some learning cases given the help they offer in assimilating basic anatomy.

Medical students are also exposed to a wide range of imaging studies while taking care of patients during their clinical rotations.

At the department of Radiology, we offer a 4-week general radiology clerkship for medical students where they will spend time rotating through all of the subspecialty radiology services covered at the American University of Beirut Medical Center. Students will get to observe the spectrum of procedures performed by our state-of-the-art equipments and spend time in each subdivision observing interpretive sessions.
