Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The UW Department of Radiology is committed to a culture of inclusion and respect among our patients, faculty, staff, and trainees. Our goal of supporting a diverse workplace and leveraging everyone’s skills and attributes is integral to our mission of providing remarkable healthcare to our patients.

The Department of Radiology has created short and long term strategic plans that focus on empowering our faculty and staff with the knowledge and skills to mitigate our biases and create an environment that is supportive and inclusive for all individuals. These efforts will be led by Dr. Maria Daniela Martin, the department’s inaugural Director of Diversity and Inclusion.

Institutional Mission

Our faculty and staff are committed to the mission, vision and values shared by both UW Health and the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. Through teaching, mentoring, and community work, we hope to promote an environment of equity to our students, trainees, and patients.

Community and Global Outreach Work

The UW Department of Radiology embodies the principles of “Wisconsin Idea”. First articulated in 1905 by UW President Charles Van Hise, the Wisconsin Idea emphasizes how the expertise cultivated within the University should benefit our local communities and beyond.
