Institutions are a way for users to keep track of their cases and even pool their cases together into a communal online case library.
Every user can have one or more institutions, and each case you upload can be marked as belonging to an institution (find out more about how to do this here).
Unverified institutions serve only to make it easier for you to keep track of cases and to search your personal case library for specific cases. They are visible on your user profile, but nowhere else. You can, however, have your institution verified.
Why verify your institution?
Verified institutions have access to many unique features including:
- your institution's very own institutional page showcasing your members and cases
- collect all cases from verified members of the institution into the one collective case library: e.g. Royal Melbourne Hospital's case library
- create a completely private and unlisted online case library
- ability to become an institutional supporter (optional)
- no advertising on all of Radiopaedia.org for all current members
- unlimited unlisted cases, unlisted cases and draft cases
Best of all verifying an institution is completely free.
How to become a member of a verified institution
If your institution is already verified and you want to become a member, first visit your account settings page and add your institution to your profile.
Your institution's account administrator will then need to verify that you are in fact a member, and set you to 'current' or 'previous'.
