Statement of Need
Core competencies defined by Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for radiology training include patient care, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, practice-based learning and improvement, and systems-based practice. (Collins) This program is designed to promote ongoing learning and development of these core competencies.

The educational need for this course was ascertained from several sources. Feedback on questionnaires from prior UCSD Breast Imaging courses has indicated a need for radiology courses that offer a focused curriculum emphasizing common pathologies, differential diagnosis, and interventional procedures.

The mammography accreditation requirements set forth by the American College of Radiology (2009) requires that interpreting physicians meet the minimum MQSA qualifications including 15 category 1 CME credits in a 36-month period.

This course emphasizes lecture format to convey maximal information to the participants. The lecture format also includes case presentation and discussion with audience response system. The course is supplemented by question and answer sessions because different learning methods tend to suit different doctors and different identified learning needs.(Grant)

Expert faculty opinion has also identified a need for training in detailed breast histology and pathology correlation, MR indications and protocol design and multidisciplinary breast care as based on new findings published in the literature, our own research and our extensive experience teaching at various training levels locally, nationally and internationally.
