Vice President of Education
Director of RAD-AID Chapters Program, Director of RAD-AID China
Matthew Lungren, MD
Dr. Lungren received his M.D. with honors from the University of Michigan Medical School, and continued his graduate medical training at Duke University Medical Center where he served as chief resident, completing a diagnostic radiology residency and is currently a fellow in interventional radiology.
As the founder of the RAD-AID/Duke Chapter, he helped to formulate the first curriculum for training residents in international radiology, or global health imaging, in 2010. Dr. Lungren has presented his work in multiple forums, including the RSNA, ARRS, and at the annual RAD-AID Conferences (2009-2012) describing chapter building at residency programs and efforts to make more opportunities available for residents to perform overseas radiology work in developing countries. He also has spearheaded work on development of a standardized global health imaging curriculum, formulating strategies which would allow universities to join with the non-profit sector for collaborative outreach and education opportunities.
Dr. Lungren currently leads the RAD-AID Chapters Program, which enables universities to form local RAD-AID Chapters for project development and international outreach, providing an optimal forum for communication and networking across programs. Projects include direct clinical radiology assistance to clinics in developing countries, research projects on patient-care outcomes, information technology and PACS instruction, business administration leadership training, and policy research on international health care economics.
As Vice President of Education for RAD-AID, Dr. Lungren is building capacity in many other outreach programs and projects, leveraging his own experiences in program development at Duke and his prior international work experience. One of the more exciting new collaborative initiatives which has recently been announced is the new lecture education program in China: RAD-AID and Project HOPE International Radiology Faculty Lecture Program, sponsored by Philips Healthcare.
If you have an interest in partnering with RAD-AID with hopes of working with radiology residents, technologists, and faculties of other institutions in RAD-AID, please contact Dr. Lungren at [email protected].
