Yale is profoundly involved in Global outreach throughout the country of Jamaica. We travel there every year to teach the local radiology residents and perform workshops for the technologists.
We recruit technologists as a part of our team and so far have taught ultrasound, CT and MRI to the local technologists. Through the collaboration and ongoing support of RADAID International, our established sites for outreach are the main public hospitals in the country, including Montego Bay and Kingston. We have also developed a lecture-sharing program through which we broadcast lectures live to the Radiology residents at the main teaching hospital in Kingston. These residents have also been accepted to do rotations at our institution in their field of choice.
These outreach initiatives have been well received locally and our residents have benefited immensely from these experiences. We are excited about maintaining a strong relationship in the future and hope you will join us in this very rewarding and fulfilling mission!
