    I am wondering if any members of CAMRT have taken this opportunity and if they would like to share their experience.

      Hi Craig,
      I was a fellow in Arusha, Northern Tanzania, in early February 2017. As Marinette has mentioned in her comment, I have also taken so much out of that trip. I’m a multimodality tech who was able to help out in different areas within the hospital. After that experience, I proceeded to become part of the RAD-AID organization. I’m a program manager for RAD-AID, the technologist program. Therefore, I help recruit, interview, and select candidates from all over the world for upcoming projects. Moreover, I self-funded at trip back, as it was such a great experience the first time around (and a wonderful experience the 2nd time around!).
      If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d be happy to answer your questions:D

    I just came back from Arusha, Tanzania on a month long fellowship in November. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had as a radiographer and as a traveller. You get to experience how things work in the other side of the world. We have many similarities but many differences as far as resources, schooling, and approach to situations. If anything, I took more away from it (through experience and interpersonal approaches) than me providing input (x-ray guidance) for their benefit.

    I would research the RAD-AID throughly. The emails of directors and coordinators are all there. They are highly motivated and easy to communicate with online (considering time difference). I was truly fortunate to receive fellowship sponsored by CAMRT.

    Merry Christmas! I hope that helped a bit.
