Department of Radiology
The Department of Radiology at Qassim University is committed to excellence in teaching and research in medical imaging. It provides undergraduate education throughout all years of medical school. It also provides radiology courses at College of Rehabilitation in Buraydah, as well as at College of Medicine at Sulaiman Alrajhi Colleges in Albukayryah.
The Medical Imaging Curriculum in our medical school is composed of a two-hour-credit course for the fourth year medical students, as well as several lectures scattered throughout different blocks and courses in the pre-clinical and clinical phases. Students are taught on radiologic normal anatomy and radiologic signs of common pathologies. They are also taught on how to develop basic skills in image interpretation and learn appropriateness guidelines in utilizing imaging studies for diagnosis in clinical practice.
