AFIP Radiologic-pathologic correlation course - the course curriculum maintains its focus on emphasizing the radpath corelation, pathophysiologic understanding of disease as a basis for interpretation of imaging studies. Interactive case-based sessions including use of an audience response technology has been interspersed with didactic sessions. Functional and molecular imaging has also been incorporated into the curriculum.
In order to plan for the AFIP's upcoming year, we encourage you to schedule your residency slots as accurately and as soon as possible. If last year is any indication, the courses become full quite rapidly; this is indicated by a pending status (this denotes the course is currently full) when trying to register on the website. We thank you for your continued support of AFIP Radiologic Pathology Correlation Course and Department of Radiologic Pathology.
The Four-Week Radiologic Pathology Course is designed to aid residents in their endeavors to achieve excellence in the technologically advancing specialty of radiology by employing radiologic-pathologic correlation in the identification of disease. The Department of Radiologic Pathology, one of 22 specialty departments within the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology located in Washington, DC, has instructed more than 18,000 radiology residents and practicing radiologists from around the world. The Course fulfills training requirements for over 310 residency programs. The current Radiologic Pathology course is a comprehensive review of radiologic imaging with pathologic correlation providing over two hundred hours of didactic instruction and case seminars. The course is organized into six separate sections: gastrointestinal radiology, genitourinary radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, neuroradiology, pediatric radiology, and thoracic radiology, and is taught by six full-time staff radiologists, a Distinguished Scientist in radiology, and numerous eminent visiting professors.
