Andrew Wentland Inducted into the Council for Early Career Investigators in Imaging 

Posted on March 2022

Andrew Wentland, MD, PhD recently was inducted into the Council for Early Career Investigators in Imaging (CECI2), a program hosted by The Academy for Radiology and Biomedical Imaging Research. The CECI2 program provides an opportunity for early career investigators to meet one another and engage in workshops focused on radiology research advocacy, NIH funding, and career development. 

“When I learned of my acceptance to this program, I was absolutely thrilled, because it could not come at a better time in my career,” says Dr. Wentland, who earned his MD and PhD in Medical Physics through the UW-Madison Medical Scientist Training Program. “I am currently rounding out my first year as a faculty at UW. During my first year, I was able to recruit a wonderful team of researchers, who have worked with me to get a number of artificial intelligence projects started. As they have begun to generate data and write papers, I look towards the process of putting grants together over the ensuing years.”  

Scott Reeder, MD, PhD nominated Dr. Wentland for this honor. Dr. Wentland adds, “The CECI2 program will allow me to advance my skills as an investigator and this critical time point in my career development. I wish to thank Dr. Reeder for his generous nomination to this program as well as the UW Radiology Department for their support as I undertake this program. On Wisconsin!” 

Congratulations to Dr. Wentland!
