overview Carina Yang, MD is Vice Chair of Diversity & Inclusion. She is also the Director of Pediatric Neuroradiology and of the Neuroradiology Fellowship. Dr. Yang is an expert in interpretation of neuroradiological CT and MR examinations, and promotes techniques for pediatric patients to minimize radiation exposure and performing testing without the need for extended sedation. She was selected to serve on the research program team for the Margaret Hackett Family Center Foundation. Dr. Yang’s devotion to educating medical students, residents, fellows and radiologists has enhanced our radiology department. She was the recipient of the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine Medical Education Research, Innovation, Teaching and Scholarship (MERITS) in 2016-2017. She has a vested interested in medical simulation in radiology. She instituted a simulation program designed to prevent knowledge gaps with interactive educational tools that improve radiologists’ clinical skills and increase retention in the diagnosis and management of contrast reactions. Her intramural course has expanded to the annual University of Chicago Radiology Review Course, and she also co-directs a similar, larger scale hands-on workshop at the Radiological Society of North America. She has also explored image-guided spine procedures using a lumbar task trainer and ImmersiveTouch virtual reality and haptic simulator. Dr. Yang has authored several peer-reviewed articles on the use of simulation in radiology. Dr. Yang co-founded the Chicagoland Radiology Expo, now in its 6th year, which provides medical students an opportunity to learn about the field of radiology through a series of interactive panels, hands-on activities, speed advising, and keynote speakers. In particular, sessions on underrepresented minorities and women in radiology help to promote diversity in this specialty. She plans on organizing a diversity program for the department, to initiate dialogue amongst its members. She also has great interest in promoting neuroradiology education to trainees and practicing radiologists on a global arena, with past visiting professorships to locations such as Newfoundland, Canada, Hong Kong, as well as Gwalior and New Delhi, India, in part with funding from two University of Chicago Provost's Global Faculty Awards. As the selected 2019 Anne G. Osborn American Society of North America International Outreach Professor to Ethiopia, she will continue to further her worldwide educational endeavors.
