A new state-of-the-art Radiology Teaching Suite was developed in the Medical Education Center (MEC) and opened during the 2015-16 academic year. The facility contains a classroom that is specially equipped with smartboard and video display technologies electronically linked to an Anatomage™ table. This virtual dissection table features a touch-interactive display system that realistically depicts a living human’s anatomy. Student learning is enhanced by its digital library which includes over 120 pathological examples.
The curriculum for the M.D. program is loaded in the Leo Curriculum Management System, a sophisticated, centralized calendar-driven learning management system that allows faculty to clearly map educational program objectives, curriculum content, instructional methods, and assessment measures directly to courses and clerkships. The system also offers patient encounter tracking capabilities and evaluation and assessment components.
