Insights from our Residents

“My global health experience was undoubtedly the most educational, influential, and in my opinion important experience I had during my entire residency at UNC.”

“Incredibly well-organized and all events are very high yield. Very relevant curriculum to enhance our learning as radiologists while also teaching global health and cultural competence.”

“Strengths lie in the collaboration with [global colleagues]. Also the journal club has been really great with lots of thought provoking discussions.”

Global Public Health, Radiology, and Health Equity

The UNC Department of Radiology advances health equity through education, collaboration, and innovation.

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. UNC Radiology Residents participating in these learning opportunities contribute within established partnerships for a sustainable impact and receive mentorship on best practices.
