Two curriculum levels deliver the right training for each resident level. The Basic level is for 1st-year trainees and provides topic introductions, imaging anatomy, and basic diagnosis questions.

Performance Tracking
For each key area, educators can see how individual residents are performing, how residents in a specific program year are performing as a group, and how residents in your program are performing compared to their peers around the world. Educators can also use this information to gain insight into areas of strength and weakness for individual residents, specific program years, and the entire residency program.
Reporting and Documentation
Use key performance indicators for individual residents, such as time spent reading topics, number of questions taken, and average quiz performance statistics to help accurately gauge and document your residents’ progress.
Consistent Guidance
RADPrimer’s curriculum provides a consistent educational resource for every teaching faculty member in your program.
Time Savers
Save time getting started with printable reading lists, department implementation suggestions, and recommendations on how to integrate with your resident tracking software. These time savers, combined with the faculty module training tools, makes reporting quick and easy.
