Department of Radiology was established in 2000, three years after the establishment of the Kulliyyah of Medicine in 1997. The department initially consists of only one lecture and a few support staff. Over the years, the department has expanded and currently offers general radiology and multiple subspecialty radiology services with various scanning modalities. These include pediatrics radiology, interventional radiology, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, and woman’s imaging.
The Department of Radiology is primarily involved in the teaching of the undergraduate program through a 2 weeks posting from 10 weeks of specialized posting in phase III (Year 4) of the medical program. Apart from that, a few basic aspects of radiological imaging are also taught in Year 2 and Year 3, and clinical-radiological correlation is in Year 5 of the medical program. We are also involved with the teaching of undergraduate students from Kulliyyah of Allied Health Sciences (Bachelor of Radiography and Diagnostic Imaging).
Our aim is to inculcate an adequate knowledge and understanding of basic radiological principles, different types of radiological modalities and important imaging findings with regard to common medical problems.
Our department also runs a Postgraduate programme – Master of Medicine (Radiology). This programme consists of 3 core courses which include Basic Radiology Rotation, Multimodality Radiology Rotation and Advanced Radiology Rotation. This programme is designed to give candidates the fundamental knowledge in general radiology and radiography with graded and further exposure to all imaging modalities in Radiology and the application of core knowledge in the radiological investigation and management of diseases where the candidates will be competent, have the ability to request for appropriate radiological investigations and consistently interpret them reliably and safely.
The postgraduate programme; Master of Medicine (Radiology) was started in June 2015 and is a 4-year clinical training programme. The candidates will be placed in an institutional hospital (Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Medical Centre) as a part of their training to become competent Radiologists. All clinical postgraduate students of Kulliyyah of Medicine are compulsory to take the required course Islamic Input in Medical Practice (IIMP) for Clinical Postgraduates, at least ONCE throughout the clinical master program.
