In 1913, James Van Zwaluwenburg, M.D., became the first professor of roentgenology in the nation, right here at the University of Michigan. Formal training in radiology was started and the field began its evolution into radiological science. When we celebrate the centennial of Michigan's Department of Radiology this October 3 - 5 in Ann Arbor, we will also be celebrating its century of pioneering leadership in radiology in America. Please join us for this historic milestone and festivities equal to the momentous occasion.
The weekend holds something for everyone — a Thursday night reception at the Big House, Friday CME lectures and the inaugural Beierwaltes lecture, tours and gala dinner, and a Saturday tailgate party before the Wolverines take on Minnesota in this year's homecoming game. Whether you completed your training last year, or 50 years ago, we welcome you home to Michigan.
We would love to show you the state of the art of radiology at Michigan today and to celebrate your own place in the elite lineage of Michigan radiology alumni. I hope you will plan to be part of our centennial activities — your presence will mean a great deal to your classmates and to all of us. We look forward to seeing you!
