After 20 years in leadership roles at the American College of Radiology (ACR), Reston, Va., Harvey L. Neiman, MD, FACR, the College’s CEO, will retire next spring.
The ACR stated that it is seeking a replacement who can shadow Neiman before he steps down as CEO in 2014.
In a statement, Neiman characterized his time with the ACR as a “real joy” and remarked on how far the organization had come over two decades. During his tenure, the ACR launched the ACR Education Center; the Radiology Leadership Institute®; the ACR Dose Index Registry®; the Journal of the American College of Radiology; the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology; ACR Informatics; and the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute™ — which of course was named after him.
“We owe him a great debt of gratitude for all of the remarkable things he has accomplished for our organization and for the profession of radiology,” said Paul H. Ellenbogen, MD, FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors.
In May, the ACR awarded Neiman its Gold Medal and the Radiological Society of North America plans to award him its Gold Medal in November.
The ACR has set up a Neiman Tribute web page, which includes additional details and a photo gallery.
