Teaching and Learning

Learning outcomes, content and teaching methods are designed being primarily based on the Kosovo Qualification Framework and modeled on appropriate practice suggested by the European Society of Radiology.


In this regard, Radiology is a discipline of high importance during postgraduate medical education and is vital to learning diagnostics as well as the image-driven therapeutic approach for almost all diseases. Medical image is an integral part of medical education. Therefore, there has been internationally agreed that radiology asks for clinical problem-solving skills and asks for the integration of basic sciences such as anatomy and pathology, clinical information, clinical experiences, and information recorded in the study of diagnostic imaging. In accordance with the Bologna Declaration, the study program is in compliance with the national level and is in line with similar study programs conducted in the medical schools of the Western Balkans and the EU.


The program relies on components which interweave theory and practice. As a result, there are implemented a wide range of teaching methods used provide opportunities for active learning. These include case studies, project work, problem-based learning, and simulation. Interactive learning opportunities are strengthened through project-based learning, case study analysis, visits, thematic lectures by different speakers, group work and learning through Virtual Reality.


The planning of the activity of the teaching process aims at achieving concrete results:

  • Ensure that students are endowed with the knowledge and interpretive skills to practice safely and appropriately in their early careers, providing a professional and ethical knowledge base for the principles of the profession;
  • Gain professional knowledge on the characteristics of imaging techniques, the clinical role of imaging techniques, individually and as part of a coordinated investigation regime;
  • Use of appropriate reference criteria and clinical guidelines, proper investigation of acute and life-threatening conditions and interpretive skills for emergency investigations;
  • To ensure that radiology graduates are fully aware of their legal responsibilities regarding the care and safety of patients affected by radiology;
  • Raise awareness regarding the importance of resource management in health care and the costs and benefits of radiology in relation to clinical management;
  • Raise awareness regarding developments in radiology that can be predicted to be part of clinical practice in their future careers;
  • To support university teaching in the rest of the clinical curriculum using the power of images to clarify normal and pathological anatomy, the nature and behavior of the disease;
  • To increase the profile of radiology as a career choice;


Medical science courses also contribute to the development of students’ ability to observe, evaluate and document health status, risks, disease symptoms and treatment outcomes of patients and citizens.


Students complete half of the program in practice at the University Clinical Center of Kosovo, at the Radiology Clinic, at the Regional Hospitals at the Family Medicine Centers and at the Medical Polyclinic at UBT.
