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 health care 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
