RSNA plans to open learning center in Tanzania

By staff writers

September 29, 2020 -- The RSNA has selected Tanzania to be the location of its second Global Learning Center (GLC) in Africa.

Funded by a $750,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the new GLC at the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) will help address the growing need in sub-Saharan Africa for training in radiology, according to the RSNA. The first GLC was launched in early 2020 at Stellenbosch University in Cape Town, South Africa.

Over a three-year period, a team of RSNA members will now work with MUHAS to develop a customized educational plan, including a curriculum with hands-on training, didactic lectures, conferences, online courses, and other education offerings, the society said. The program will focus on interventional radiology, neuroradiology, pediatric radiology, and women's imaging. Equipment and technical assistance will also be provided.
