UBC Radiology Global Outreach Program (RGOP) Terms of Reference


Technology and internet have made our world smaller. News is shared within seconds, and disasters impacting human health, frequently unknown in the past, have become an everyday reality.  Due to technologic advances, the global medical community is consistently growing, and the need for global cooperation is urgent.

The University of British Columbia (UBC) Department of Radiology strives to strengthen global medical community by providing training and improving access to Diagnostic Imaging. While UBC has an established role of bringing in radiologists across the globe for fellowship training, there is a growing need for outreach initiatives in the low-resource communities both domestically and internationally.




  • create a hub for exchange of outreach experiences and opportunities among UBC radiologists, trainees and supporting personnel
  • seek and maintain collaboration with other Radiology outreach programs in Canada
  • maintain collaboration with medical and Radiology global health organizations, such as Medicine sans Frontiers (MSF), RAD AID, Radiology across Borders (RAB), etc.
  • establish and maintain a collaborative relationship with clinical outreach programs within UBC Faculty of Medicine.


  • provide lectures and other education resources in medical imaging to radiologists and technologists in the low-resource communities in Canada and internationally
  • participate in conferences aimed to improve global health
  • involve and foster passion for teaching in medical students, residents and fellows.

On-site projects

  • seek and share opportunities for the on-site domestic and international Radiology projects, including diagnostic/skills workshops and clinical work.
  • navigate funding options and grants for participation in the on-site projects.
