As diagnostic imaging has evolved in complexity, breadth, and capability, the training of future radiologists has advanced in tandem. The past decade has seen radical changes in undergraduate medical education in the radiological sciences. These include several innovations such as the flipped classroom, audience response technology, long-distance or virtual teaching, and promotion of active learning (

2). It has also been suggested that medical students be taught about the multi-disciplinary impact of imaging on specialties other than radiology (
