Utilization of radiology as an educational resource carries great potential. Accreditation bodies, physicians and medical students deem it important for a well rounded medical curriculum. Unfortunately this resource is yet to be developed and implemented to an optimal extent. We share the experiences from the first radiology core clerkship in Pakistan at the undergraduate level. An overview of clerkship objectives and structure is followed by discussion on lessons learnt during the initial three years of institution. Development of assessable objectives, integration of radiology with other specialties, and supervised andragogical learning tailored for undergraduate students are emphasized.
