The UNC-Chapel Hill RAD-AID Chapter was founded in 2012 by the UNC School of Medicine’s Division of Radiologic Science and the Department of Radiology. UNC Radiology is part of the rich tradition of teaching, outreach, and clinical excellence in the School of Medicine’s global health community. Currently, the department offers two international electives in Kenya and Malawi with RAD-AID International.
