Welcome

On behalf of The YALE – Fundacion Santa Fe de Bogota | Center for Interactive Digital Education in Radiology (YALE-FSFB|CIDER)* I welcome you to our Website.

Lifelong Learning

All our programs at CIDER are based on the Lifelong Learning process. Lifelong Learning insures the solid acquisition of knowledge. It places the student in the center of the learning adventure, and makes him responsible for his education. The exacting tutor becomes a mentor to the student. Emphasis shifts from memorizing facts to understanding concepts. “Solo cramming”, and competitive testing are replaced by expressive sharing, and self-evaluation. The concept of Lifelong Learning is no stranger to medicine. Abraham Flexner’s writings(1), and The Yale System of Medical Education(2), are early Twentieth Century examples.
