About the Program

Our Mission

The mission of the e-Radiology Learning program is to advance the practice of radiology by disseminating our educational content to a worldwide audience via an easily accessed medium that will allow interactive engagement with our distance learners. Get program details.

Program History

Johns Hopkins University, and the Department of Radiology under the leadership of chair Dr. Karen Horton, are dedicated to sharing knowledge with the world. This global spirit has led us to focus our initial program planning on sharing the content of our radiology resident training beyond the confines of our institutional boundaries. We are also intent on offering an enhanced educational experience through interactive engagement—rather than simple recorded lectures.

Our first pilot, in the fall of 2009, targeted a large academic institution in the Middle East. With our newfound knowledge we embarked on a more aggressive second pilot in the summer of 2010, broadcasting our educational content in a live online format to three continents. This experience and those gained over the subsequent seasons has helped us fulfill our commitment to delivering our educational content worldwide.

As our programming expands we look forward to the challenges and rewards that each season brings. The aspect we find most gratifying is the growing network of colleagues joining us for lecture and engaging with us via Facebook.
