The University of Cincinnati Jerome F. Wiot Endowed Chair of Radiology Residency Education Fund was established in 1997. Funds from the endowment were designated to be used to support the Director of the Residency Program and the residency program in general.
Dr. Jerome F. Wiot was born in Cincinnati on August 24, 1927. He graduated from The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 1953 and completed his internship, residency and fellowship at Cincinnati General Hospital in 1959. In 1968, he was named Director of Radiology at Cincinnati General Hospital, and in 1973 was named Chair of the University of Cincinnati Department of Radiology. He served as Acting Senior Vice President and Provost of Health Affairs at UC from 1985-1986.
Dr. Wiot trained hundreds of radiology residents during his time at the University, many of whom practice in the region today. As a result of his passion for and commitment to the education of residents, the Chair’s fund was established.
Drs. Wiot and Lukin worked together to bring the first computed tomography (CT) scanner to University Hospital and the Greater Cincinnati area in 1974.
Dr. Wiot was nationally recognized and respected. He was a trustee and president of the American Board of Radiology (ABR) and worked for the ABR for over 40 years.
