Message from the Director
The field of radiology has historically not been a diverse one, this means change will require intentional actions. We are taking steps to create and maintain a diverse program. We are partnering with the undergraduate program to create a pathway to radiology. We have a month long visiting student clerkship program focused on exposing medical students to high quality radiology here at UPMC (link coming soon). We are engaging with our trainees, faculty, advanced practice providers, technologists and others that are underrepresented in medicine and learning ways to improve their experience here. We are also engaging our underrepresented minority community to ensure equitable use of healthcare resources. There is a lot of work to do but we are excited to keep learning and growing.
This training program will challenge you to make you a quality radiologist, it is important that you are able to learn in a welcoming environment. When you come here to train, know that you will be accepted, and your presence will add to what we believe is a special program.
