BAR Lab (10 of 21)

Beginning to Advanced Radiology (BAR) Lab 

The Beginning to Advanced Radiology (BAR) Lab was completed in August 2015 and partially funded through a grant received from the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The BAR Lab design facilitates blended learning including flipped classroom and team-based learning methodologies. The physical space is equipped with a Philips virtual simulation teaching PACS identical to the clinical application currently used throughout the University of Colorado Health System and utilizes iPads to deliver curriculum materials. Medical students and residents undergo small group learning in this innovative space.

With the department’s support, our residents have increasing opportunities to be excused from clinical service to lead interactive sessions in the BAR Lab, both to medical students and undergraduates. These sessions have become an integrated piece of the medical student curriculum, and are now a part of clinical rotations combining clinical practice with imaging correlation. BAR Lab sessions have been very popular with both residents and medical students. Most notably, our residents have enjoyed the opportunity to gain teaching experience. Additionally, many of the sessions are multidisciplinary, allowing for interaction with other subspecialties. Ultimately, the BAR Lab has created a venue that facilitates resident learning and medical student exposure to our department and the great field of Radiology.
