Joey Tiwari, M.D.
Radiology resident Joey Tiwari, M.D., has been elected to a two-year term with the Medical Society of Virginia Board of Directors. He holds the position of the Resident Associate Director.
“Given that only one resident is elected each year to the Board and that the position is open to all specialties and institutions across the state, this is an outstanding honor for Joey, for radiologists in general, our Department of Radiology in particular, and for the VCU Health System,” said Ann S. Fulcher, M.D., chairman and professor of radiology.
The Medical Society of Virginia’s Board of Directors includes just two residents. Tiwari will transition to the position of Resident Director during his second year on the board.
Throughout his academic career, Tiwari has made time for community service, most often working with neighborhood children. While pursuing post-graduate research in radiation oncology at Stanford University, Tiwari used his tennis skills to connect with East Palo Alto’s inner city children. A former Division 1 scholarship player, he devoted his spare time to teaching the children tennis. As a medical student at the University of Louisville, he was honored with an award for humanitarian field work in recognition of a health-care mission trip to South Africa that he led and organized to assist children diagnosed with HIV and AIDS.
A PGY-4 in Diagnostic Radiology, Tiwari is applying for fellowship in Interventional Radiology.
