Jellybean 68 with Frank Gaillard

Matt McPartlin (aka @RollCageMedic) interviews Frank Gaillard, the Frank Gaillard, the one who created Radiopedia. Radiopedia is a very big thing but it started out as a way to avoid studying, surely something we can all relate to.

Frank Gaillard started Radiopedia as an exercise in pre-exam procrastination. It has become an educational juggernaut in freely available radiological education. Pre-dating the formalisation and explosion in FOAMed resources, Radiopedia embodies what FOAMed is all about.

Despite its success, Frank is a humble guy and an altruist at heart. Listening to him recount the origins and evolution of Radiopedia and peek into the near future of where it might go, you’d be forgiven for drawing comparisons with entities such as the Khan Academy. One important lesson to the sustained success of Radiopedia has been the way that Frank has managed to bring good people on board, people that love what they are doing, people that in turn inspire the creators. It’s a team. It’s quite a big team and that’s before you consider the extended community. It’s a beautiful thing.

The website has plans to expand into interesting new areas including self assessment tools and trying to fill gaps that people like Frank can see in training systems all over the world.

So no more teasing radiologists about lurking in dark rooms and maintaining an aloof distance from patients (well, maybe just a little bit). Turn on, tune in and rad out.

Son. Lighting up my life and climbing up some rocks.
Where I walk everyday we are exposed to the southern ocean. The southern ocean is an unforgiving place. The casualties of its inhospitable state get washed up on the shore. Usually dead. This is a dead #fairy #penguin #Rare #beautiful #dead
Just a beach. Some sea grass, a dog and the water.
Freaky #sunset through #smoke on the way home.
