|Bismarck radiologist named radiology chair|
Edward "Ted" Fogarty, a Bismarck radiologist, has been appointed chair of the Department of Radiology at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences. His appointment was effective July 1.
Fogarty joined the UND medical school faculty in October 2003 as a clinical assistant professor of radiology.
"We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Fogarty to this important administrative post within the medical school," said H. David Wilson, dean and vice president for health affairs at UND. "He has been a very effective and enthusiastic faculty member and we know our students will continue to benefit greatly from the leadership he brings to radiology education."
"Our unique situation at UND for training of the third and fourth year medical students at the four clinical teaching sites across the state has always created a great deal of variability in the learning experience of the students at the various campuses. That heterogeneity of experience is not necessarily detrimental; we can now overcome the lack of cohesiveness for our students by using internet-based distribution of important teaching cases across the state to the various clinical campuses. Visual imagery is a key point in creating lasting points of knowledge and understanding in student physician's minds; I will create a core curriculum of iconic medical images associated with classic disease states so that our students are best prepared for taking care of patients in their residency years and beyond,” Fogerty said.
Fogarty completed an undergraduate degree, with honors, at the University of Chicago in 1993 and then worked as a research assistant at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Chicago. He earned the Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Nebraska College of Medicine in Omaha in 1998.
After medical school, he took one year of training in UND's transitional year internship program based at MeritCare Hospital in Fargo. In 2003 he completed a four-year radiology residency program at Creighton University Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital, in Omaha. During residency training, he served as chief resident and received the RSNA Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award. He was also elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society as a resident while at Creighton University Medical Center.
In 2003, Fogarty joined the Medcenter One Health Systems as a staff radiologist, where he will continue to practice.
Fogarty and his wife, Carolyn, and their three children reside in Bismarck. -- School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
