“As part of building UNC Global Radiology, it is important to remember that “global” doesn’t mean “international”.  The issues of improving imaging access and imaging education are prevelant domestically and abroad.  It is important to educate our trainees in global radiology to give them the tools to identify and overcome these challenges in their future practice.”

Mission

UNC Global Radiology advances health equity through education, collaboration, and innovation.

Program Vision

Because every patient deserves high-quality care, we educate the next generation of global leaders and make meaningful contributions to increase access to health services.

Global health includes issues that transcend national boundaries, like cancer, and that require worldwide, multidisciplinary cooperation — so our partnerships have a Local to Global approach. We have active health equity programs in North Carolina and with international collaborators. As part of the rich, longstanding tradition of UNC community engagement and service, our efforts align with the vision of UNC Health and promote the university’s aims within the Carolina Next strategic plan. Donations made to the Global Radiology Initiatives fund support our partnerships.

Program Values

Within UNC Global Radiology, we believe that every person, including our team members, patients, and collaborators, has inherent value and deserves respect.

Within this program, we promote and value diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Learning to understand and appreciate views different from our own creates community and fosters excellence.

Within UNC Global Radiology, we conduct our work and engage in our partnerships with integrity to honor the responsibility of our mission and the people with whom we work.
