Abstract Rationale and Objectives. The authors attempt to provide a set of objectives for medical student training in radiology for contemporary medical practice. Materials and Methods. A questionnaire containing a list of educational objectives was sent to 32 radiologists in charge of medical student training in radiology at accredited residency programs in Australia and New Zealand. The importance of including each preselected objective in the curriculum was measured by respondents' agreement or disagreement on a scale of 1-6. Opportunity also was given to respondents to suggest objectives other than those presented on the questionnaire. Results. Twenty of the 32 questionnaires were returned, and a set of educational objectives was established based on the responses. The objectives were ranked in importance according to the mean score assigned to each objective by the respondents. Conclusion. This new set of educational objectives for medical student radiology training reflects recent changes in radiologic and medical practice and points to potential future developments.
