Pediatric Radiology Education in Ethiopia

Link to CHOP's Pediatric Radiology Outreach in Ethiopia page

The Department of Radiology, Addis Ababa University and the RSE have been in partnership with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in an outreach programme aiming to:

  • *  Establish a pediatric radiology fellowship,
  • *  Provide initial training to the country’s first pediatric radiologists,
  • *  Enhance the pediatric radiology aspects of the residency training, and
  • *  Provide CME for the general radiologists following the same

Full focus on reviewing "Unknown Pediatric Radiology Case" at the annual CME course

In 2015, the Department of Radiology of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) started the first pediatric radiology fellowship program at Black Lion Hospital. The program has since trained two faculty members and, in 2019, there are three fellows in the program.

Visiting professors 

In addition to presenting at the annual CME course, visiting professors are expected to engage in “viewbox” teaching during the regular clinical schedule throughout their visit. The regular clinical hours are from 9 am to 12 pm and between 2:30pm and 5pm and involve active participation in the interpretation of radiographs, CT and MR studies. As is common outside the US, residents do their own ultrasound scanning. Hence, those proficient in ultrasound scanning are also encouraged to spend time in the pediatric ultrasound suite were residents and fellows enjoy the added supervision, and some practical/technical tips on existing or new applications.
