Investigator: Bhavya Rehani, MD
Sponsor: RSNA Research & Education Foundation

Location(s): Kenya


RISE is a radiology-teaching platform providing live virtual interactive training. The RISE technology platform allows radiology trainees at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, to tune in during live lectures at UCSF and other participating institutions in the U.S. It also provides access to recorded lectures for self-paced learning. Dr. Gladys Mwango, a member of the radiology faculty at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, is collaborating with Dr. Rehani in implementing the RISE platform at her institution. She said radiology students in Kenya lack opportunities beyond a basic radiology education.
