Christine Glastonbury, MD, has been appointed as vice chair for academic affairs for the UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging. In this position, Dr. Glastonbury will oversee faculty recruitment, mentorship, professional development, promotion and tenure.

Dr. Glastonbury has been a member of the UCSF faculty since 2002, initially as a neuroradiologist at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital & Trauma Center and as a body radiologist at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Prior to her tenure at UCSF, Dr. Glastonbury completed undergraduate medical training and residency at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia and clinical fellowships in London (general and oncologic radiology) and Salt Lake City (neuroradiology and body MR).

Recognized within and outside of UCSF for her expertise in head and neck imaging, Dr. Glastonbury holds joint appointments in radiation oncology and head and neck surgery.  She is a member of the Expert Panel for Head and Neck for the multidisciplinary American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) for tumor staging, serves on the editorial board of the American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR), and has co-authored and edited multiple textbooks and over 100 scientific articles in radiology. She is known for her world-class lectures nationally and internationally, and recognized for the expertise and enthusiasm that she brings to teaching and developing the careers of the next generation of radiologists.

Dr. Glastonbury has previously served as the program director of the UCSF Neuroradiology Fellowship Program and currently serves as interim chief of Neuroradiology. She has also been director of mentoring for the department.

UCSF Radiology would like to thank Susan Wall, MD, for her exceptional leadership over many years in this position. Her institutional knowledge and experience have positioned the department as a model across the UCSF School of Medicine for positive and effective management of faculty affairs. Dr. Wall will work with Dr. Glastonbury to affect a smooth leadership transition and move into a new position, advisor to the chair for faculty development. She will work with Christopher Hess, MD, PhD, chair of UCSF Radiology, to develop and invigorate internal departmental programs for professional development for department faculty.
