Excellence in the Department of Education is recognized in many ways.

Residents’ Award of Distinction (RAD Award)

Departmental award given annually by the residents to the faculty member who best exemplifies support of the residents, dedication to teaching, and excellence in the practice of radiology.

2017-2018 RAD Award Recipient

Dr. Kurt Messer

Charles Kevin Roberts, D.O., Professionalism Award

The program has given annual “professionalism on call” awards to lower level and upper level residents and a faculty member who regularly takes call with the residents since 2004. The award was named and given posthumously to USAF Major Charles Kevin Roberts, D.O., who would have been a member of the 2008 graduating class. In the short span from diagnosis until his death, Chuck demonstrated altruism, honor and integrity, and respect for others as he waged “war” with cancer. Chuck was a fine physician on his way to becoming an excellent radiologist. Most importantly, he was a good and loving man.
