In his 38 year career at the University of Michigan, Dr. Silver was a dedicated educator, mentor and clinician. His leadership in clinical ultrasound and teaching will leave a lasting legacy through those he trained. Realizing the growing need for education in ultrasound, Dr. Silver developed courses that taught sonographers, medical students, radiology residents and fellows. His excellence in teaching has advanced the field through those he’s trained both at Michigan and around the world.
It is this kind of vitality and excellence that makes the University of Michigan one of the most esteemed in the nation, able to attract and retain talent of the highest caliber. It is also what the community served by U-M's Health System has come to expect and from which it benefits.
The Terry M. Silver Collegiate Professorship in Radiology seeks to both honor Dr. SIlver's contributions and to ensure that the pursuit of excellence Dr. Silver exemplifies continues to thrive in the department.
