The Duke RAD-AID chapter is currently active in several projects which are described below:
Development of a Translatable, Open-Source Global Health Curriculum
The curriculum development committee is working to create a global health imaging curriculum which will be web-based and an adjunct learning resource to international service opportunities.
Members of Duke RAD-AID are also aiding in the writing and editing of a global imaging textbook in collaboration with the national RAD-AID organization.
Members of Duke RAD-AID are participating in a site visit to Sacré Coeur Hospital this January through funding from CRUDEM. During the trip, there will also be an opportunity for teaching at an imaging technology conference taking place at Sacré Coeur.
We are also working to establish a long-term elective opportunity for radiology residents in Haiti through collaboration with Project Hope and Family Health Ministries. This venture will provide opportunities in the future for residents and faculty to actively participate in finding sustainable solutions for the imaging needs of the local community and perform research into medical imaging challenges that face the developing world.
Members of Duke RAD-AID are aiding in the establishment of a mobile women’s imaging unit in India.
Through the national RAD-AID organization, members of the Duke RAD-AID chapter are helping to develop a structured residency curriculum for implementation and multiple radiology residency programs in China.
There are many unmet imaging needs at locations such as Adventist Hospital in Haiti, which serves a large portion of the population in Port Au Prince.
