CU Department of Radiology
Nov 24, 2020
Carol Rumack, MD, Professor of Radiology, Vice Chair of Professional Development, and Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education, has been named a Distinguished Professor of the University of Colorado. The title Distinguished Professor is the highest honor that CU bestows on its own faculty members. Since 1977, only 118 faculty members have received the honor. According to the CU System list of Distinguished Professors
, there have been 27 School of Medicine professors to receive the honor, and only three women among them. Dr. Rumack holds the distinction of being the first woman with an MD from our School to be named a Distinguished Professor; previous female recipients have had PhDs. Dr. Rumack, who joined the department in 1975, is an exemplary leader whose contributions to medical science and education merit this extraordinary recognition.
