Goldman Named First Holder of Mahoney Endowed Chair at Creighton

Martin L. Goldman, M.D., Creighton University professor and chair of radiology, will be the first holder of the Dr. Paul S. Mahoney Endowed Chair in Radiology and Medical Imaging as well as the first holder of an endowed chair in that department.

An inaugural ceremony will be held at 4 p.m., Feb. 13, in the V.J. and Angela Skutt Student Center’s Mutual of Omaha Ballroom, located on the Creighton campus.

Goldman joined the Creighton School of Medicine in 1999 as a professor and chairman of the Department of Radiology. At Creighton, he has helped build one of the region’s leading clinical programs in radiology as well as a highly regarded radiology residency program. Creighton’s radiology residents scored in the top 5 percent in all of North America on national written board exams in diagnostic radiology in 2006 and 2007.

“Dr. Goldman has facilitated growth in all mission areas of the department – education, research and patient care. He has promoted collaboration within and outside the department with the expressed goal of creating a 'gung ho’ atmosphere,” said Cam E Enarson, M.D., M.B.A., Creighton medical school dean and vice president for the health sciences.

While serving as chief of vascular and interventional radiology at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Albany Medical College in New York, and University of Washington in Seattle, Goldman played a significant role in the evolution of angiography and interventional radiology. He has helped train more than 300 residents in radiology and 40 fellows in the subspecialty of vascular and interventional radiology.

A 1966 graduate of Northwestern University School of Medicine in Chicago, Goldman completed his medical residency at Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center in New York City and a vascular and interventional radiology fellowship at the University of Oregon in Portland.

The Dr. Paul S. Mahoney Endowed Chair in Radiology and Medical Imaging is the ninth endowed chair in Creighton’s School of Medicine and the 31st at Creighton University. It is a gift from the estate of Paul S. Mahoney, M.D., a 1954 graduate of the school and a respected leader in radiology.
