From Our Chairman
Welcome to the Department of Radiology at the University of Washington. As Interim Chairman, I am proud of the many individuals with whom I work. We have 134 faculty, including physicians, physician assistants, advanced registered nurse practitioners, and scientists; and 105 residents, fellows, and post-doctoral students. We are fortunate to have an incredibly talented staff and leadership team. In total, ours is a department of wonderfully dedicated individuals committed to reducing the struggles of those in need, to education, and to discovery.
Our efforts reach across the domains of clinical care, teaching, and research. We provide services to the Pacific Northwest, Asia, Africa, and other sites. To be successful, we have established an environment that celebrates effort, recognizes accomplishments, and embraces continuous learning and mutual support. The environment we have established enables us to recruit and retain the best faculty, trainees, and staff.
We are recognized for patient and family-centered care. We are a values-driven department. Our core value is to provide the best in care for every patient every time. We are proud that we highly value research, inspired by the goal of healthcare that is more accessible, less invasive, lower cost, and has optimal outcomes. Our valued educational programs are geared toward creating physicians and scientists who care deeply and see innovation as central to the challenges of the future.
Finally, our greatest joy is in accomplishing more together, in the power of partnering. As you examine our website and the work that we do, please contact us if you are interested in working with us or have suggestions on how we can further increase our impact.
