The Department of Radiology Global Health Pathway is a structured global health training pathway for our residents, with a focus on ultrasound delivery to resource-poor regions through collaboration with dedicated global health institutions. The pathway features a four-year curriculum, integrated into the radiology residency, intended to provide residents with longitudinal curriculum in global health, including the specific challenges of health care delivery in resource-poor areas and an identification of health-care priorities which may be aided by radiological services, with the ultimate goal of preparing residents for the initiation of their own global health project during their fourth year of training.
An additional key component of the curriculum is collaborating with RAD-AID for the residents’ project development and site selection. RAD-AID International is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit with the mission of creating sustainable global health radiology initiatives.
