Healthcare Economics Milestones Program

A Unique, Engaging Program

The HCEM Program focuses on collaborative and active learning. It is at the forefront of our design.

The specific curriculum was developed to take residents’ learning experience beyond basic and passive learning of reading articles and watching recorded lectures.  Instead, it utilizes such activities to introduce residents to the general concepts to prepare them for greater participation and the experiential learning components of the program.

This interactivity promotes a deeper learning and a more comprehensive understanding of the key health care economics concepts. Residents are better prepared to effectively apply what they learn as they move forward in their careers.

How the Program Works

The program is organized into five blocks to address the five milestones. During each block, residents will go through a heavily interactive and engaging educational experience to ensure deep learning and comprehensive understanding of the topics and their practical application in today’s radiology reality.


1. Pre/Self-Directed Learning

Residents are introduced to the milestone topic through a series of self-paced activities such as videos, articles and related content to be studied on her or his own schedule.

2. Local Activity and Small Group Learning

Building on the pre-learning, residents work together at their home institution to participate in a local activity and small group discussions led by local faculty who help the residents gain a deeper understanding of the topic and its application in today’s health care market. Residents from each program then prepare a deliverable based on the information and data gathered during the activity.

3. Cross-Institutional Live Group Webinars

Residents present their deliverable in a cross-institutional webinar with 4 – 5 other programs. Facilitated by an RLI subject matter expert, an in-depth discussion follows to ensure that residents both  know about the topic as well as understand its implementations in practice.

4. Assessments 

Assessments will be done at the end of each milestone block to measure competency and participation of each resident in order to provide the maximum value to each program that participates.
