Jade Anderson, MD has joined the Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention Section as an Assistant Professor (CHS). She completed her fellowship in Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Q: Where are you from?
A: I’m from Chicago, Illinois.
Q: Why did you choose radiology?
A: During my orthopedic surgery residency, I was going to leave medicine altogether, get my MBA, and go into consulting. However, one of my mentors (a current MSK Radiologist who switched from orthopedics to Radiology) suggested I try Radiology instead. I followed their lead, and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made!
Q: What are your career interests and goals?
A: I decided to stay in academics because I love teaching medical students and want to improve the exposure to radiology. Ultimately, I also hope to increase the number of women and minorities in radiology. I am also heavily involved in health care policy and social media engagement for educational radiology content.
Q: What are your research interests?
A: Gender and minority health equity.
Q: Why did you choose to work at UW?
A: The Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention Section at University of Wisconsin is world-renowned and top in the nation. I couldn’t have asked for a better training institution for Fellowship, more supportive colleagues, or a more nurturing Radiology department.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Traveling, trying new cuisines, watching the latest movies, and hanging out with my friends and family.
