Three Junior Faculty Development Program Graduates

Three Radiology Faculty Members graduated from the Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP) on May 21 during a virtual ceremony via Zoom. Katyucia de Macedo Rodrigues, MD, Elizabeth Garwood, MD and Alexandra Wink, PhD started the intensive year-long program last fall. The JFDP has two components; an comprehensive curriculum and a project guided by a senior faculty mentor. The individual project is identified by the participant, approved by their chair and completed with the assistance of their mentor. The projects are presented during late May, this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions were presented via Zoom sessions. For the graduation descriptive words were collected for each graduate and a word cloud/star was created and posted during the presentation. Congratulation to our three Radiology graduates!
