The undergraduate training of radiology is different in terms of the curricular content, instructional formats and available human resources. In the present study, organization of undergraduate radiology teaching has been described & important characteristics of undergraduate radiology curricula have been identified. Perception of students about the undergraduate radiology curriculum at university & about radiology as a profession & career choice were explored. Specific questionnaires were developed. Sample size of 50 was taken, of which 35 were post graduate students of various departments and 15 were interns. 97% students were agreeing to add radiology in undergraduate curriculum and 2% were in dilemma to whether add or not and 1% was totally disagreeing to add radiology as undergraduate curriculum. The descriptive results of the questionnaire show large differences in the organization of undergraduate radiology curricula. The results show that students both during pre-clinical and clinical years appreciate particular curriculum components & highly appreciate radiology study to interpret imaging studies. The study experiences affect positively student perceptions about radiology as a profession. Thus, radiology as a subject for undergraduates is a need of time & diagnostic quality by adding radiology as a subject for undergraduate curriculum can be improved.
