Vice President, Instructional Resources
Director, RAD-AID Learning Management System
Ezana Azene, MD, PhD
Dr. Azene received his MD and PhD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and is currently an interventional radiology fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital after completing medical internship training at the University of Maryland. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). Dr. Azene began his work at RAD-AID by researching and writing the RAD-AID Ethiopia Country Report, which details the health care system and radiology resources of that country. RAD-AID's country report program has now grown to include six countries, with more in the pipeline as health providers from all over the world have volunteered to write about the medical imaging needs of their countries.
Dr. Azene manages a growing portfolio of research initiatives at RAD-AID, including the country report program, internet-based survey data on radiology needs-assessments, and the Radiology Readiness program. This research is an important part of RAD-AID because good strategies for radiology services in limited resource regions depend upon comprehensive research.
Dr. Azene recently presented at the RAD-AID Conference on International Radiology for Developing Countries to illustrate opportunities for medical students, residents, and faculty to work together on important research that can build future projects in limited resource regions.
