One of the core initiatives of RAD-AID is to provide quality education to radiology professionals in developing countries. Improving education ensures the highest impact of global outreach initiatives through empowerment and individual capacity-building of the local health care professionals. This educational goal is partly fulfilled by on-site education and training of health care workers by our on-site clinical teams. However, for sustainability, online and evolving learning opportunities should also be available to our global partners to supplement and maintain these educational objectives.
The Learning Center is an online portal specifically designed to provide free, high-quality, culturally adapted radiology educational content to radiology professionals in developing countries to supplement their existing training. The Learning Center team develops curricula and course content, and oversees implementation and dissemination of high quality educational material for use by residents and staff of radiology departments in developing countries.
We are currently in the process of upgrading our online platform, expanding our educational material and recruiting core team members. If you would like to get involved, please fill out this volunteer survey so that you are included in our database. We check this database often to identify individuals with the interests, experiences, and skills that best match the needs of our education team. We always welcome enthusiastic and motivated new volunteers and participants in our team. Once we have identified a good match for your skills and interest, we will contact you by e-mail to schedule an in-person phone interview.
