RSNA Seeks New Host for Global Learning Center
RSNA is accepting applications from eligible hosts for the next Global Learning Center (GLC), a program designed to expand radiology education opportunities around the world.
RSNA is interested in partnering with established radiology departments based in low- or middle-income countries to create a GLC and improve the radiology department through education. GLC host locations must demonstrate a need for radiology education and resources and have a designated team lead with English fluency who will serve as a primary contact.
RSNA is also seeking applications from RSNA volunteers to work as a team with the radiology department at the host GLC. After a GLC is selected, a team of up to four RSNA volunteers will be chosen to match the needs of the GLC. Teams will consist of a program director and team members.
Applications to serve as an RSNA team member are rolling for all GLC institutions. You must be an RSNA member to serve as a team member. Both applications are available at RSNA.org/GLC.
