Michael V. Friedman, MD
Michael V. Friedman, MD, assistant professor of radiology in the musculoskeletal imaging section of Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, is recognized for his outstanding commitment to teaching and educational innovation in musculoskeletal and general radiology. His work has benefited musculoskeletal radiology fellows, radiology and orthopedic surgery residents, and medical students.
Since 2012, he has served as the radiology course director for the medical student anatomy course, and since 2013 has been course director for the medical student general radiology clerkship, senior radiology elective and the radiology resident teaching elective. Through his leadership in these roles, Friedman has championed mentorship of medical students, actively including them in research and educational endeavors. In 2015, he received a Loeb Teaching Fellowship from The Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation to support his work to update the pre-clinical and clinical medical student radiology curriculum, modernize the radiological imaging correlate in the anatomy lab and create an interactive case simulator, transforming medical students from traditional passive observers to active learners during their radiology rotations.
Friedman earned his bachelor’s degree from Washington University in 2003 and his medical degree from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in 2007. He completed residency and fellowship training at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology before joining the Washington University faculty in 2013. Samuel R.
