RAD-AID Nigeria, 2017.
RAD-AID initiated a new program in Nigeria in January 2015 with great contribution and leadership coming from the University of Maryland chapter. A preliminary radiology assessment was performed in January 2015 through a visit to Nigeria, and a RAD-AID Country report on Nigeria was completed in June 2015. Nigeria was one of the countries presented at the 2015 RAD-AID Conference. Under the leadership of Farouk Dako, MD, MPH, Program Manager of RAD-AID Nigeria, and the RAD-AID Chapter at Temple University Hospital, follow-up trips have focused on interventional radiology education for residents at LUTH. Current goals of the program include 1) radiology trainee education based on Radiology Readiness with recent focus on ultrasound and image guided percutaneous intervention, 2) technologist hands-on training, and 3) optimization of the imaging enterprise, including capacity building.
