Gary W. Mlady, MD, has been named chair of the Department of Radiology for the UNM School of Medicine, effective July1.
Mlady completed his radiology residency at UNM in 2004 and joined the department faculty as an assistant professor and chief of Musculoskeletal Radiology that same year. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in neuroscience from the University of Colorado and his Doctor of Medicine Degree from St. Louis University Health Sciences Center in 1999.
“It’s an exciting time in health care with many new opportunities to create meaningful change,” Mlady says. “My focus will be on providing exceptional customer service to our patients and providers while building collaboration with other departments in our cutting-edge approach to patient care, research and education.”
The Department of Radiology provides nearly 300,000 procedures annually at UNM Hospital, Sandoval Regional Medical Center and the Albuquerque Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center. Radiology faculty members also serve as radiologic sciences educators while conducting important imaging research.
The UNM SOM radiology chair provides the key leadership as an advocate in all matters concerning imaging to improve the delivery of care through new technology and advance the science of imaging through continued research. Mlady will be responsible for developing strategic goals and obtaining, allocating, and managing the resources necessary to achieve those goals.
“I am delighted to have Gary Mlady as our new Department of Radiology chair,” says UNM Chancellor for Health Sciences Paul B. Roth, MD, who also serves as the School of Medicine dean. “His leadership in patient care, education, research and business is an essential asset to both our patients and students.”
