Paediatric Radiology Medical Electives Program

The Medical Electives program run by the Department of Diagnostic Imaging allows 4th year medical students to shadow either a resident, fellow or staff radiologist on a daily basis for the duration of his/her elective. The medical student also attends the daily teaching rounds presented by the Diagnostic Imaging staff. 

Application Process

University of Toronto Medical Students (Year 4): Submit the "University of Toronto Clerkship Elective Proposal Form" to the Supervisor of Diagnostic Imaging Electives for approval of a DI elective. The form is faxed back to the Electives Officer, Undergraduate Medical Education at U of T. Immunization is processed through U of T. At the conclusion of the elective (2 weeks to 1 month), a U of T evaluation form is completed by a staff radiologist and signed by both the staff radiologist and Supervisor of DI Electives and faxed to the Electives Officer, Undergraduate Medical Education at U of T. 

Medical Students from outside the University of Toronto umbrella (Year 4): Students are processed through the University of Toronto Undergraduate Medical Education Office, Visiting Electives Program Administrator (including immunization). An electronic request for an international student DI elective is emailed from the U of T Undergraduate Medical Education Office, Visiting Electives Program Administrator, to the Supervisor of DI Electives, for approval or rejection of a DI elective. Request is electronically returned to the Electives Program Administrator at U of T. Upon completion of an international elective, an evaluation form from the home university is completed by one of the staff radiologists, and signed by the Supervisor of DI Electives.

Approved students: Once a student has been approved for a DI elective, they must submit an HSC Appointment Form to Human Resources for approval by an HR rep. On the first day of the DI elective, the medical student has a brief orientation by the Coordinator of the DI Electives and the student obtains an HSC ID badge from HR (which is returned to the Coordinator of DI Electives at the end of the elective.)
