RAD-AID International and the American Association of Medical Dosimetrists (AAMD) are pleased to collaborate on a program designed to give medical dosimetrists the opportunity to contribute to the health care needs of low-resource regions. Medical dosimetrists are critical team members to advance radiation oncology in global health. To increase equity and to improve care globally in radiation oncology, RAD-AID and the AAMD are collaborating to offer funded opportunities to support medical dosimetrists interested in volunteering in underserved regions of the world. Participants will join RAD-AID’s project teams in international initiatives designed to improve access to quality radiation therapy for populations in need.
You are eligible to apply if you meet all of the following criteria:
- Minimum of 3 years certification as a medical dosimetrist.
- Full CMD Member of AAMD.
- Currently employed as a clinical medical dosimetrist.
- Once selected, RAD-AID AAMD Global Outreach Volunteers must sign and accept any and all release forms provided by AAMD and RAD-AID.
Additional volunteer opportunities with RAD-AID Radiation Oncology are available for non-clinical medical dosimetrists.
After completing travel as a RAD-AID AAMD Global Medical Dosimetrist, you are required to submit a report to RAD-AID on objectives completed and future recommendations and to submit photos and a brief communication on your experience to the AAMD. If interested, participants may consider submitting an abstract for an oral meeting presentation, poster, or journal article to the AAMD.
Please consider applying for this opportunity to use your skills as a medical dosimetrist in service to developing regions of the world. The experience of working in a multidisciplinary team for radiology around the world can be personally and professionally fulfilling as you learn about other cultures and health care systems, using your talents for improving global health.
