Imaging the World has been taking volunteers to Africa from its start in 2008. To date we have: placed practicing and retired medical professionals at rural health clinics; taken medical students, supervised their research and helped them publish and present their findings; brought pre-med students looking to gain international experience before applying to medical school. Does this sound like you?
Each volunteer opportunity is assessed on a case-by-case basis. Considerations are made to community needs, space, availability and volunteer’s experience. Imaging the World prides itself on being a culturally competent organization that puts the needs of our patients and partners first when considering a volunteer opportunity.
Once vetted, approved and in-country, the Imaging the World Africa staff will greet volunteers, take them to their placements and provide assistance during each volunteer’s stay. Travel within Uganda, housing and meals are all arranged for volunteers by Imaging the World and Imaging the World Africa stadd.
Volunteer opportunities are available to practicing and retired medical professionals in radiology and ultrasound, current medical students, non-students seeing to apply to medical school and students in an interested in or pursuing global health or medical imaging.
