Radiology With a Vision
The East Africa Medical Assistance Foundation is a Minnesota 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing radiology services at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center (KCMC), a 630-bed teaching hospital at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro in Moshi, Tanzania. It is the site of the Kilimanjaro School of Radiology, the first radiology residency in the country. Through donations, the foundation provides monetary support for the radiology training program, assists in providing equipment for the imaging department and manages a volunteer program for radiologists who wish to contribute by teaching at the Kilimanjaro School of Radiology. Over 100 AMO doctors and 10 residents have graduated from the training program and now provide services throughout Tanzania.
