Anything about radiology seems to be a popular category for this blog, so I’m pleased this week to write about several outstanding teaching-and-learning sites for medical students everywhere, found recently through Delicious.
Physician Gillian Lieberman, faculty at Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, has created several in-depth radiological collections based on her own work in that specialty (with many contributions by medical students or residents with whom she has worked) at Lieberman’s ERadiology. These sites offer core-learning content for first and second-year medical and dental students, in various formats.
For your consideration, I have highlighted several examples from these free, online tutorials: .

- Lieberman’s Learning Lab which is described on the main page as: “… 450 mini seminar presentations on Cardiac, Respiratory, GI, GU, Musculoskeletal, and CNS topics. These are prepared by Harvard medical students in collaboration with Dr. Gillian Lieberman. They are detailed and cover both radiologic and clinical aspects. The intended use is for medical students, residents and staff. “

For first-year students studying human anatomy (or dissecting), the links on this site may be useful. The image shown below was taken from the Powerpoint tutorial entitled, “Tumors of the Paranasal Sinuses: Approaches to Diagnostic Imaging“

A 2nd year medical student who was in my PBL group last fall suggested that I write about LearningRadiology, a teaching/learning source she uses frequently. This is a comprehensive site with many areas of multimedia, interactive quizzes, links to podcasts (in iTunes).
You could spend all day on zooming around in this educational site! I liked the “22 Must See Diagnoses for Medical Students” (media player required).
There are radiology learning modules grouped for medical students, such as this one shown below (screenshot):
Finally… more of a post-medical education portal, The Doctors Channel could also be called “By Doctors, For Doctors”. Created by physician David Best, the free site offers a variety of free educational content for physicians including educational or commentary videos, a section on “dueling doctors”, podcasts, CME opportunities and more. To gain access to the full contents of the Doctors Channel, you’ll need to sign up and first log in (at no cost). Two examples of content:
