Women in Radiology

The Women in Radiology group is dedicated to the development, promotion, and support of women physicians and scientists in the Department of Radiology at the University of Michigan and to increasing the number of women entering the specialty of radiology.

The group meets about six times a year. Each gathering includes a featured topic and may include a speaker, panel, and/or discussion. Topics are selected and planned by members of the Steering Committee and cover a wide variety.

  • We have been hosting virtual events since the pandemic began including group social hours, pumpkin carving, and a discussion on sexual harassment. We plan to continue to bring fun and informative virtual events to the group throughout the 2020-2021 academic year.
  • Recent past Book Clubs have discussed the following books: “She Wins, You Win,” “Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High” and “Becoming” by Michelle Obama
  • Recent past speakers have presented on the promotions process at Michigan Medicine, being a good mentor or mentee, finance and estate planning for women, and sexual harassment
  • Recent past group social/networking events have included breakfasts with Grand Rounds speakers, mixers to meet new members and local practice members, fitness classes, paint night, and more
