The DRG's "unirad" offer, available since 2018, is now supplemented by numerous new courses, notably the modular e-learning package "CoRad-19" aimed at universities with medical faculties, the society announced on 30 April.
Each institution can decide which CoRad-19 courses it would like to use for teaching based on the needs of its students, the society noted. It added that 13 universities -- among them Lübeck, Tübingen, and Zurich -- are already using the DRG's digital courses. After completing an online course, each student receives a certificate, which he or she can submit as proof of learning.
No additional software is required for the CoRad-19 courses: A PC with an internet connection is sufficient to use the interactive case-based teaching modules and apply learning in practice. The 10 courses from the CoRad-19 package cover the entire range of topics in radiological training, including neuroradiology and musculoskeletal and interventional radiology, among others.
The course contents and case collections were developed by seven experts: Dr. Saif Afat (Tübingen), Dr. Bettina Baessler (Zurich), Dr. Nienke Hansen (Cologne), Dr. Katharina Müller-Peltzer (Freiburg), Dr. Ahmed Othman (Tübingen), Dr. Daniel Pinto dos Santos (Cologne), and Dr. Fabian Rengier (Heidelberg).
Every university that enters into a unirad cooperation agreement will now automatically have access to the additional modular teaching content of CoRad-19, the DRG stated. Further information is available in an introductory video on the DRG website.
