Posted on October 2014

(L-R): Dr. Lubner, Dr. Sheehan, and Dr. Pickhardt

Chief of Gastrointestinal Imaging Professor Perry Pickhardt, M.D., Assistant Professor Meghan Lubner, M.D., and Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellow Scott Sheehan, M.D. were all selected for the 2014 RSNA Honored Educator Award. With just 42 awardees selected from 53,000 members worldwide, Drs. Pickhardt, Lubner, and Sheehan represent UW Radiology’s commitment to education on a global scale.

Established in 2011, the Honored Educator Award is designed to recognize RSNA members who have furthered the societies’ educational mission in the past calendar year. Qualifying educational activities include authoring an educational exhibit or article, donating a refresher course, or serving as faculty at an educational meeting.

Dr. Lubner has served on the Education Exhibit Awards Committee for three years, and she coordinated the reviews of over 300 gastrointestinal exhibits as GI Team Captain this past fall. Dr. Pickhardt collaborated on nearly 20 posters and papers accepted to the upcoming 2014 meeting. Dr. Sheehan has produced a number of publications for the journal Radiographics, and has had successful education exhibits in recent years at the RSNA annual meeting, earning certificates of merit and a magna cum laude recognition.

Drs. Pickhardt, Lubner, and Sheehan are following in the footsteps of two-time winner Dr. Jeffrey Kanne, who garnered selections in 2012 and 2013.
