Abstract

Millennial learners have unique educational preferences and expectations, many of which vary significantly from those of their predecessors. To aid in the preparation and training of the next generation of radiologists, we have been exploring a teaching technique using an art observation training workshop to foster engagement of millennial radiology residents to pay closer attention to image detail, clearly state the observations and synthesize the "story" of the patient's condition. Fine tuning these visual skills is crucial as research shows that over 70% of errors in interpreting diagnostic imaging studies are related to visual perception errors.
