Over the years, the College has been financially supporting a number of ad hoc initiatives in radiology and radiation oncology in developing countries. With advice from the College Chief Executive Officer, the College Board made a decision to create a more fair and transparent process to provide small grants for overseas development work undertaken by College members.
This support by the College fills a critical need because radiology and radiation oncology services are both at the top-end of medical services and hence not readily available in most lower middle income countries (LMCs). The lack of access is largely due to the cost of the infrastructure and the limited availability of trained personnel.
The potential benefits of such international activities include not only improvement in patient care, but also raising the standard of clinical radiology and radiation oncology and developing these disciplines in other countries.
In 2013, the College Board approved an annual allocation of $30,000 (or approximately 0.35 per cent of the College income) to support international development work in radiology and radiation oncology.
Proposals must be submitted by the end of March each year for funds to be provided for the following financial year (July-June).
