Women in Radiology

The Women in Radiology group was founded in 2015 by several residents and faculty members. This organization is dedicated to networking, mentorship, skills development, community building, recruitment and promoting the success and ambition of female faculty, fellows and residents. We have annual funding from the department to host various events throughout the years. Annual functions include a Welcome event, End-of-Year celebration, “State of the Department Address” and Annual Keynote speakers. Past events include roundtable discussions and skill-based workshops on negotiation, creating a CV, work/life balance, coming back to work after maternity leave, family planning and more.
