Course Design

‘Radiology Resident HOT SEAT Review Courses’ are exam-oriented comprehensive courses for post-graduate Radiology students with multi-system, multi-modality course curriculum. The course is designed for the exam-going post-graduate students, who have to appear for the practical component of Radiology DNB,MD, DMRD or any other examination in Radiology. The course is likely to be more useful for these students, if they are ready with the theoretical component. The course is carefully designed in the best interest of the exam-going post-graduate students in Radiology and has following components:

  • Case-based HOT-SEAT Review Sessions for different body systems with interactive discussion and relevant learning points will remain the key feature of the course. The students will have the option to attend the session as either HOT SEAT volunteer or as observer. The updated Hot Seat Session format will provide interactive interface for participants and observers for active learning.

  • Film Reading Session (multi system unknown cases) will be conducted on day 3 for the selected students based on their performance during the Hot Seat sessions, while the remaining students will also participate. The updated format for the Film Reading Session will have small student groups on different tables for interactive learning experience for all the students.

  • Demo sessions will include ‘Drugs & Devices in Interventional Radiology [IR]’, which is sub divided under 4 different stations on day 1. Additional demo sessions on day 2 will include Radiological Contrast Media, Radiology procedures [Barium, HSG & MCU], Recent Advances and Regulation in Radiology practice, Radiography/Radiation equipments and Mammography Image interpretation from examination perspective. The updated format for the Demo Sessions will have small student groups on different tables for ‘hands-on’ interactive learning experience.

  • Short Teaching Sessions - ‘Imaging Pearls & Pitfalls’ sessions and ‘Case-based reviews’ sessions will focus on key topics and exam questions in Radiology MD and DNB exams.

  • OSCE sessions with Q&A, discussions and scoring will prominently feature in the 17 th course, as practice sessions for the DNB final exams along with assessment / scoring by the course faculty.

  • Spotter sessions will continue in the 17 th course as extensive practice sessions in the evening. The format in Spotter Sessions will allow self-assessment and assessment by the course faculty.

  • Radiological anatomy sessions will continue in 17th course as short teaching sessions for select body regions. This will help the students to improve their description of radiological findings.

  • Recent Advances in Radiology will feature in the 17 th course as a brief session so that the

  • students are updated with the latest advancements in the field.

  • Radiology QUIZ will feature in the 17th course as a ‘rapid-fire’ session so that the students are prepared with the ‘must know’ points and instant image interpretation.

  • Mock Exams will be conducted ONLINE as separate ‘add-on session’ on a later date close to the final exams [to be announced]. This will require separate registration and will only have 25 seats. The format for the Mock Exams is exactly same as the final DNB practical exams and will have OSCE session in the morning followed by parallel viva sessions with ‘one student and one examiner’, without any observers. Relevant feedback will be provided to the students after the session for self-assessment. Table viva sessions will include viva sessions on Radiology procedures, Contrast Media, Radiation equipment and Regulations / Recent advances in Radiology for each student. The scores for each section of the exam will be shared with the respective students along with relevant feedbacks for further improvement in the final exams.

  • Certificates of Distinction will be awarded to TOP THREE students for the overall performance.

  • Certificates of Appreciation will be given to the selected students [total 20] based on their performance during the HOT SEAT Reviews and Film Reading Sessions. Top scorers in OSCE and Spotter sessions will be rewarded.

  • Faculty interaction and personalized feedbacks will be an added feature in the 17th course, which will allow platform for the students to understand their strengths / weaknesses and to improve their performance in more effective manner. PDFs of select course material will be mailed after the course to help in revision before the final exams.

  • This comprehensive exam-oriented preparatory course is an excellent opportunity for the Radiology post-graduate students to ENHANCE their performance in the forthcoming examinations and also in their future careers as a Clinical Radiologist.

"The art of MEDICINE consists in amusing the patient, while the NATURE cures the disease”…Reading today, this famous quote by Voltaire made as early as 17th century, does seem to underplay the crucial role medical professionals play in alleviating the human sufferings. But if we read ‘between the lines’, the quote does make lot of sense without understating the science of Medicine and the role of medical professionals. It simply emphasizes the impact of Mother Nature in life of humans during health and disease.Amid scientific advancements and technological innovations, the human’s thought process today certainly has a greater scientific inclination than ever before. With same scientific temperament, Doctors tend to seek scientific explanations and evidence-based solutions to provide relief to the suffering patient. ‘Patient-centric’ approach and ‘Problem-solving’ attitude are certainly vital assets of a good Doctor. In present times, we all need to understand the limitations of scientific knowledge, potential side-effects of technology and implications of widespread commercialism. It is time that we realize and respect the role of Mother Nature in disease processes and follow the nature’s laws.As Leonardo da Vinci mentioned in 15th century itself.“Vitality and Beauty are gifts of Nature for those, who live according to its laws”.We, at Evidence Healthcare Clinic, work on same philosophy and believe in sincere, ethical and balanced approach towards our work and patients. Whether it is use of diagnostic investigations or line of treatment, we always adopt a ‘balanced’ approach rather than being too ‘aggressive’ or too ‘conservative’. We always integrate clinical skills and scientific evidence with due respect to patient’s preferences to provide ‘state-of-the-art’ healthcare services. We practice ‘Evidence-based Medicine’ with high standards of sincerity and medical ethics so as to ensure high healthcare standards for our patients without compromising the sync with Nature.
