Abstract: This chapter argues that a shift in educational practice is needed to adequately prepare prac- titioners for practice in medical imaging. Radiology is a rapidly changing, technology-driven field, requiring new forms of multidisciplinary practice. (Engel-Hills 2005) The content- based syllabus was effective as a guide for education programs that prepared novice practi- tioners to adapt their practice in a slowly changing environment. The challenge of professional education in this discipline today is to develop practitioners with entry-level competence for immediate practice and with the ability for continuous self-directed learning to deal with constant, rapid development. In the current environment, an integrated curriculum is an appropriate pedagogy to equip practitioners to enter this complex, changing workplace.
