By Staff News Brief

Geraldine B. McGinty, MD, assistant professor of radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College, has been elected chair of the Board of Chancellors. She is the first woman elected to this position in the nearly 100-year history of the ACR.

Dr. McGinty is an expert in healthcare strategy and economics. She serves as the chief strategy officer and chief contracting officer for the Weill Cornell Physician Organization.

She has been a leader in the ACR’s Imaging 3.0™ initiative to insure that radiologists enhance their visibility in patient centered care and are prepared to function effectively in emerging alternate payment models and value-based payment systems. At the annual meeting held in May in Washington, D.C., the ACR honored Dr. McGinty with the 2018 William T. Thorwath, Jr. MD Award for outstanding contributions to the field of health policy and economics for radiology.

Other newly elected officers include:

  • Vice Chair - Howard B. Fleishon, MD, chief of radiology services at Emory Johns Creek Hospital in Johns Creek, GA, and division director of community radiology services at Emory Healthcare in Atlanta.
  • President - Hanes A. Brink, MD, radiologist-in-chief at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School.
  • Vice President - Marta Hernanz Schulman, MD, professor of radiology and pediatrics, radiology vice-chair for pediatrics, chief of pediatric radiology, and medical director of diagnostic imaging at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.
