"During a multidisciplinary consultation, students and co-assistants prefer to keep quiet, just to avoid asking stupid questions. And because they no longer receive education in that area, there is a risk that their knowledge will lag behind in the rest of their careers," says doctor and lecturer in radiology Matthias Cabri. Amsterdam UMC and the UvA have therefore developed the Radiology Education Clinic, a safe and accessible environment to ask those very questions."
