The purposes of this study were to survey the present state and problems related to curriculum and clinical clerkship of diagnostic radiology and to find out alternatives for the improvement of curriculum design in diagnostic radiology. The results of this study are as following: First, 43.3% out of professors, 70.6% out of residents and 69.4% out of students reply that they don't attain the objectives of classwork, although they finish all their classwork successfully. Second, most of them reply that classwork is oriented by professors and least participated in by students. Third, PBL(Problem-based Learning) by small group is very effective to learning. Fourth, the reasons why clinical clerkship isn't systematic are that there aren't professors-in-charge of clinical clerkship and that the schedule of clinical clerkship is irregular. Fifth, students' participation in clinical clerkship is not substantial participation, such as interpretation and procedure, but simple observation. Based on these results the points which the improvement is called for are as follows: First, professors must achieve the objectives of classwork by thorough analysis on those within limited class hours. Second, it is desirable that they apply learning methods to improve students' thinking by small group activities to their classwork. Third, professors-in-charge of clinical clerkship are surely needed.
