The UW RAD-AID Chapter has been growing. Being a part of something outside the lab, classroom, and clinic is a chance for many of us to step up and say, “I believe we can make a difference.”
The department of radiology initiated its radiology global outreach program through collaboration with the non-profit organization RAD-AID International. The UW RAD-AID chapter was founded in 2013 by Department of Radiology faculty and residents and since then has had increasing participation from residents, faculty, and technologists.

Global Radiology Outreach During Residency
The UW Radiology residency program identifies the educational value in radiology global outreach experience for our trainees. As such, a mentored global radiology elective is being offered for our residents, which entails clinical in-country experience that focuses on teaching our residents the array of pathologies encountered in different regions of the world and the processes and challenges of delivery of imaging services in resource-limited healthcare systems. Residents are also expected to participate in educational projects and scholarly activities pertaining to the field of radiologic sciences in a resource-limited, international environment.
Prior participating residents: George Carberry, Andrew Schapiro, Erica Knavel, Jeanine Ruby
