Specialist training in Nuclear Medicine is based on individual tuition supplanted by lecture-based courses in Nuclear Medicine and related disciplines, even though the limitations of the lecture format for transferal of information are well-documented. We have developed and implemented a new electronic course format that emphasizes the practice of Nuclear Medicine. The system utilizes a combination of three client server platforms: (1) A web-conferencing platform, (2) a client-server imaging processing system for Nuclear Medicine, and (3) a Learning Management System (LMS). Each of the weekly 30 lessons in the planned new course “Practical Nuclear Medicine” will be introduced by webcast lecture and live demonstration with audience feedback. The lecture will be recorded on a video archiving platform, and supporting material will be handed out via the LMS. Finally, course participants will process and read one or several anonymized original studies delivered via the imaging processing system and submit the reports via the LMS. The new system is online under https://nukit.ihelse.net/moodle. The course has been approved by the Norwegian Medical Association and is due to be held in 2017.
