October 18, 2022 —  The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) announces that the first RSNA Global Learning Center (GLC) in Asia will be hosted by Ciptomangunkusumo National Referral Hospital at the University of Indonesia (FKUI/RSCM) in Jakarta. 

By partnering with established radiology departments based in low- or middle-resourced countries to create the learning centers, RSNA aims to work in accompaniment with the host sites to improve radiology education and patient care around the world. The goal is that through these valuable collaborations, RSNA GLCs become regional hubs for excellence in radiology education. 

“RSNA is delighted to be partnering with Ciptomangunkusumo National Referral Hospital in Indonesia to bring our first Global Learning Center to Asia,” said Umar Mahmood, M.D., Ph.D., RSNA Board Liaison for International Affairs. “We look forward to working together to create a custom radiology curriculum for the GLC that addresses the educational needs of the Jakarta region.” 

The inaugural RSNA GLC launched in early 2020 at Stellenbosch University near Cape Town, South Africa. Since then, GLCs have opened at Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) in Tanzania and Hospital Metropolitano in Quito, Ecuador. 

“As an RSNA Global Learning Center, FKUI/RSCM will start the first radiology fellowship programs in Indonesia for women’s and abdominal imaging,” said Reyhan Eddy Yunus, M.D., FKUI/RSCM GLC onsite program director. “These programs will help offer state-of-the-art care and become the benchmark for fellowships in the country and throughout Southeast Asia.” 

Now that the host site has been selected, over a three-year period, a team of RSNA members will work with the GLC to develop a customized educational plan, including a curriculum with hands-on training, didactic lectures, conferences, online courses and other education offerings. Equipment and technical assistance will also be provided based on the needs of the site. 

RSNA team members will travel to Jakarta to learn about the GLC’s educational needs. The team will present lectures and provide hands‐on training and point‐of‐care opportunities. The RSNA team, in close consultation with the local team, will design and present an educational plan tailored to the needs of the GLC using RSNA educational resources. 

RSNA is issuing a call for applications to join the Indonesia GLC team. Radiologists with subspecialties in women’s and abdominal imaging are needed. Selections will be made in December 2022. To learn more about the RSNA GLC program and team member requirements, visit RSNA.org/GLC
