Dr. Mark D. Murphey is a professor of radiology at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, and a Physician-in-Chief at the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP). He received his MD from the University of Kansas Medical Center as well as his radiology residency training which was completed in 1986. After completing his Musculoskeletal mini-Fellowship studies at the University of California, San Diego, and the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, he joined the faculty at the University of Kansas Medical Center in 1986 and became Chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging in 1990.

Dr. Mark D. Murphey has been an academic radiologist for over 25 years and has directed all of his scholarly activities to his subspecialty of musculoskeletal imaging. In his early years at the University of Kansas, he published the first article on an MRI of the sacroiliac joint. In 1993, Dr. Murphey moved to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP), which provided a unique opportunity to understand the pathologic basis of a disease's radiologic appearance. 

In 2010-2011, Dr. Murphey was instrumental in the transition from the AFIP to the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) as a program of the American College of Radiology (ACR). Dr. Murphey is currently the Physician-in-Chief of the AIRP. In his tenure at the AFIP and the AIRP, he has particularly emphasized research on the imaging appearance of musculoskeletal tumors. Dr. Murphey has published 145 peer-reviewed articles, 155 abstracts, 27 books and book chapters, 72 scientific exhibits, and given 594 national and international presentations. 

Dr. Murphey's academic career has been extraordinarily fulfilling, and he hopes that his efforts have broadened our knowledge and understanding of the imaging of musculoskeletal disease.
