OAK BROOK, Ill. (April 25, 2017) — Radiologist Athanasios D. Gouliamos, M.D., Ph.D., will bring his medical expertise to Indonesia as part of the International Visiting Professor Program offered by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The program fosters international relations among radiology societies to assist with medical education in developing and newly developed nations.
Dr. Gouliamos, professor of radiology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens Medical School in Athens, Greece, will be joined by two fellow radiologists as he embarks May 1 on the 10-day trip. He will spend his visit giving presentations and teaching intensive seminars to radiology residents, as well as attending conferences and meetings.
The program is mutually beneficial. The visiting team of radiologists informs local doctors and hospitals about the latest advances in diagnostic and therapeutic radiology. In turn, the visiting professors experience firsthand the obstacles faced by medical professionals in the host countries.
“This program will give me the opportunity to share my knowledge with radiology professionals in another part of the world,” Dr. Gouliamos said. “No matter which country you are from, the same problems can exist and similar solutions may apply. Thus, this program through RSNA is important to help build relationships in other parts of the world through education.”
Dr. Gouliamos will be accompanied by Robert M. Steiner, M.D., from Temple University Health System in Philadelphia, Pa., and Maheen Rajput, M.D., from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa.
Dr. Gouliamos will spend his trip visiting hospitals in Central Jakarta, Makassar and Yogyakarta. He will conclude his trip lecturing at the Indonesian Society of Radiology’s annual scientific meeting in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The International Visiting Professor Program was founded in 1986 and is administered by RSNA’s Committee on International Relations and Education. This trip is supported by Agfa HealthCare.
RSNA is an association of over 54,600 radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists and related scientists, promoting excellence in patient care and health care delivery through education, research and technologic innovation. The Society is based in Oak Brook, Ill. (RSNA.org)
