Radiology Volunteer (Remotely)
Report to: Radiology Coordinator
In early 2013, PIH/ZL and the Haitian Ministry of Health (MSPP) opened the Hôpital Universitaire Mirebalais (University Hospital). Located in the town of Mirebalais, 30 miles north of Port-au-Prince, the 300-bed national teaching hospital represents the biggest reconstruction project in the health sector launched in Haiti since the January 2010 earthquake. A national referral facility and teaching center, University Hospital was designed and built in response to a direct request from the Haitian government in accordance with the national plan to decentralize access to care and medical education.
Equipped with the first CT scanner in the public sector of Haiti, University Hospital also has two digital X-ray machines and ultrasound equipment. Radiology technicians perform about 1000 X-rays and 300 CT scans a month. Since there are no full-time radiologists at the hospital, we rely on a network of radiology volunteers in the US to interpret our scans via remote PACS system log-in. Volunteer radiologists primarily communicate via e-mail with the PIH Radiology Advisor and the Radiology Coordinator at University Hospital.
