Senior radiology clerkships often must cope with medical students whose overly optimistic course goals are quite different from the objectives of the radiology faculty. Conference formats that satisfy both the clerks and the teachers are therefore difficult to design. We use a conference based on student assessments of radiology examinations that attracts student interest while accomplishing staff objectives. This learning session relies on student-prepared analyses of radiologic examinations. The five-year experience with this teaching method has been quite positive from the perspectives of students and the staff.
