2021 UNC Global Radiology Student Research Team Members

Global Public Health, Radiology, and Health Equity

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

UNC Radiology with colleagues in Malawi

UNC Global Radiology, a RAD-AID Chapter, was founded in 2012 by the UNC School of Medicine’s Division of Radiologic Science and the Department of Radiology. 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.

Our efforts support the vision of UNC Health and advance the university’s aims within the Carolina Next strategic plan. We have active health equity programs in North Carolina, Kenya, and Malawi.

Get Involved

We have strong medical student participation within UNC Global Radiology with national conference presentations and publications featuring student-led initiatives.

Within our North Carolina program, we have mentored MD-MPH students to create medical imaging and public health focused interventions. To support global health international interests, we offer a Global Radiology elective for UNC medical students.
