Faculty Spotlight: Jade Anderson

Posted on August 2023

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.
