Global Health Efforts at UCSF

Radiology is part of nearly every segment of health care, making the absence of radiology a critical piece of global health disparity. At UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, our faculty members have committed to several global health efforts aimed at increasing radiology education and access in low resource regions.

The Global Cancer Program at the UCSF Hellen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center coordinates cancer-related efforts of UCSF faculty and trainees in low and middle-income countries. Its mission is to reduce the global cancer burden through innovation, education and collaboration.
