He has been recognized for his excellent work in transforming the radiology curriculum, receiving the Dean’s Teaching award in 2018. Dr. Stephenson has overseen the Radiology Clerkship for medical students since 2012, when he began a successful effort to revise the radiology curriculum to introduce a more structured and objective-based approach, using technology to more equally engage learners from across the statewide campus, and employing a PACS based case simulator for student use.
