International Certificate

Empowering the world through education

Project lead: Ailsa Cowie

We have collaborated with the University of British Columbia (UBC), Radiopaedia, and eIntegrity, to introduce the International Certificate in Radiology Fundamentals (ICRF) in February 2021. This unique one-year online program aims to build capabilities in radiology and consequently improve health care delivery to patients.
