Course aim

By the end of the course, the attendee will have
(1) a comprehensive understanding of good/best advanced MSK MRI interpretation and reporting practice;
(2) improved MSK MRI interpretation and reporting skills;
(3) greater confidence in her/his advanced practice; and
(4) identified skills and knowledge gaps, if any, relevant to her/his practice, and clear ways by which these can be addressed.
