Donald L. ResnickProfessor | Oakland, California
Donald L. Resnick, MD, Professor of Radiology and Chief of Osteoradiology at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), has devoted more than 30 years to musculoskeletal radiology education. Dr Resnick received his medical degree and radiology residency training at Cornell University in New York before joining the faculty at UCSD in 1972.
Shortly after his arrival at UCSD, he began what could easily be considered his greatest educational endeavor when he began serving as the scientific advisor and mentor for podiatric radiology and osteoradiology fellows – as of today, more than 150 clinical fellows and 400 international research fellows, from over 20 countries throughout the world, have received one-on-one training through his fellowship programs. An astounding 70% of these fellows pursued academic careers after their training periods. More than 1000 visitors have come to his base of operations, affectionately known as “Bone Pit”.
