Radiographics. Nov-Dec 2020;40(7):1938-1952. doi: 10.1148/rg.2020200100.

Abstract

The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Committee on International Radiology Education (CIRE) has worked for the past 25 years to create academic programs oriented to the needs of international radiologists. The CIRE develops organized and structured approaches to help build one's capabilities and increase one's capacity for professional growth, which then facilitates better patient care. The authors describe the four programs that CIRE is responsible for and introduces its newest initiative, Global Learning Centers, which is planned to start in 2021. RSNA involvement in global radiology education provides opportunities for early, mid-, and late-career radiologists to participate in these programs as students or teachers. The authors describe some of the programs' success stories and invite readers to become a part of and contribute to the growth of radiologic academic endeavors globally. ©RSNA, 2020.
