RAD-AID Sonography Canada Volunteer Fellowship for Sonographers
RAD-AID is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to increase and improve radiology resources in developing and impoverished countries. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 4 billion people are at risk for widespread losses and deaths that can be avoided or treated, if radiology were available. RAD-AID was established in 2008 to answer this need. It has since grown to include more than 3,500 contributors from 200 countries, and has on-site programs in more than 14 countries.
RAD-AID International and Sonography Canada are pleased to collaborate on a program that offers sonographers in Canada the opportunity to contribute to the health care needs of the developing world. Recipients of this volunteer fellowship will be funded to join RAD-AID’s project teams in international initiatives designed to improve access to quality medical imaging for populations in need.
The experience of working in a multidisciplinary team around the world can be personally and professionally fulfilling. You will learn about other cultures and health care systems and use your sonography talents for improving global health. Consider applying for this new opportunity to use your skills in service to developing regions of the world.
